I feel a 30 qt pot is on the small side. That is only 7.5 gallons and even when I did extract brews I did full boils and had to start with 6 or a little more gallons of liquid. I'm not saying it is impossible but be sure and keep a good eye on your boil.

I use a 10 gallon pot and have never had any worries or boil overs. Just my .02.

dogma9,

I copied this off a bayou classic web site.

The Bayou Classic Square Propane Burner is one of Bayou Classic’s more popular propane burners. This propane burner’s top measures 16 x 16, which is viewed as more stable than the round propane burners. The height of this propane burner measures 13 inches tall. The needle valve on the square propane burner gives you complete control over the amount of flame, so you can cook food or heat beverages properly. The Bayou Classic Square Propane Burner includes a 10 PSI regulator, which reaches 55,000 BTUs.

+1,000,001 on the The Bayou Classic Square Propane Burner! really stable, and 55,000 BTUS is enough to bring a 6.5 gallon volume for a 5.5 gallon batch up to a boil in a reasonable amount of time.

SQ-14 all the way for me. I get ~7 gallons to a full boil in 20 minutes or less! I have a 52qt aluminum pot I bought at WINCO (Washington, Idaho, Nevada, California, Oregon) for $39, added a sight glass and 1/2" valve for another $25.

Do not use Oxyclean in the aluminum pots, it is not good for the metal and left my batch of Stout with a metallic taste yuck!

I wash my pot with a soft sponge and let it air dry. Any bad guys left in the pot will be killed off during the boil!

55,000 is the lowest I'd go. It takes me over an hour and a half to mash from start to finish (heating mash water and sparge water to temp, mashout, recirculation, and sparging.) and I don't want to wait longer than 20-30min to get up to a good rolling boil!

I keep a low flame going on my SQ-14 as I runoff into it. Takes about 30-40min, double batch sparge. I crank it as soon as the last sparge run finishes off and it's boiling in less than 10 minutes.

hmmm may need a longer run off tube.... My burner is 8' from my deck horizontal distance and 3' vertical ... but may well be worth the longer tube to get to a boil in 10min!

any opinions on sp10 vs sp14? also anyway to make sure oxidized layer is ok or how to restore it just in case? btw i will most likely stick to 5 gallon batches for the forseeable future.
