That's why I waited for Giant Eagle to put the nested stock pot set on sale. There's,like 4-5 polished stainless steel stock pots with lids & steamer trays in there for $30! Even had 4 metal hangers if you didn't want the steamer tray resting on the ring around the bottom 4th of the pot.
That steamer tray will come in handy for BIAB partial extract brews! Not to mention,momma got 3-4 brand new shiny SS stock pots to play with. She's happy gettin something she's been wanting,I get something I need (namely,the 5G stock pot,the biggest one!). So everybody's happy!
Just like Gary Martin says,get her somethin,get you somethin with no complaining. Generally,anyway. But not me...at least most of the time. She loves my beer 100% more than BCB's (Big Corporate Brews)...kinda makes ya think of PCB's,doesn't it?(Petroleum Chemical Base) So I should be fine doing 3-3.5G brews...
