Nice. That canner was a lucky find. Had it in the garage for years with no use. Saved me a good $50 or more on initial equipment. I'm hoping to continue to utilize it when starting partial mash and BIAB methods.

I'm guessing a 5-6 gallon pot is about as big as you can go for the kitchen? I'd get a bigger one, but have no way of using it outside at the moment anyway. I figured once I got into AG I might pick up a turkey fryer rig.

I used one too. I want to save up and get a nice big kettle so buying a cheap one now is kind of a waste. I borrowed one off of the mother in law.

I know what you mean. I was looking at the cheaper stainless steel pots and reviews for them are pretty bad. They are thin and warp easy and things like that. That's another reason I figured I'd get as many miles as I could out of this one.

I still use one to heat mash and sparge water.
