New brewer here. Bought some equipment and made my first brew the other day. I used a cheap 4 gallon pot to brew and while it worked, it definitely motivated me to get a better kettle (and to make a wort chiller, but that's a different story).
Any recommendations on kettles that will let me avoid future upgrades? I'm thinking that a kettle well-suited for doing all-grain batches a keg (generally 5 gallons, yes?) at a time gives me about as much room for growth as I think I'll ever need.
My current thoughts are that a 10 gallon kettle would let me do full-boil all-grain batches of 5-gallon brews. I also thought a built-in spigot and thermometer would be a worthwhile investment. A sight glass seems like a useful feature, but I'm not sure if that's just the newbie in me getting bright-eyed over any and all gadgets.
Any input or suggestions?
