If you're making 3 gallon batches I'd say that's just barely gonna work. You could get creative for a standard five gallon batch and boil your syrup in about a gallon and a half of water but then your IBU would have to be adjusted because of the density of the wort. You could get a relatively inexpensive aluminum pot somewhere in the 5 gal range too and make your life easier.
I haven't really got the money to buy a bigger pot so was hoping I could do it in the one I got. It would be a partial. I might give it a go and see how it turns out, then maybe get a bigger pot. Cheers people

I started with a 5 gallon ss pot i found on Amazon on sale. I would boil my extra water the night before brew day and then keep it in my sanitized bottling bucket. So brew day was 3ish gallon extract and specialty grains. I did that with good sucess for over a year.
