A 10 gallon round will do everything you need for 5 gallon batches and allow you to do some normal gravity 10 gallon batches if you go that route. I used a 5 gallon Igloo for years and was limited to somewhere in the 1.06's. I repurposed my wifes old 48qt cooler for 10 gallons; however, I tried to do a 10 gallon Union Jack clone and it didn't have the capacity for the extra water to raise the grain from 148 to 155 (or whatever it was) so my clone isn't exactly a clone as it ended up pulling a decoction to raise the temp. Anyway, the point being, take a long think about what your brewing plans are down the road and base your decision off of that so you don't end up being wasteful.
