I'm glad you thought about this and brought it up. However I think your math is off. 5 fluid ounces = 148ml which would be a little over 1.7 liter for a 12 cup. I just checked by weighing and if you filled to the 10 cup mark it might be ideal for a 1.5L batch. You couldn't do a 2L batch.

Also, I think I good put another cup in over what the max line shows - that would give you anywhere from 2.2 liters to 2.3 liters

Damn it, another $12.95 to Amazon. This forum is costing me too much money.
Seriously I like the idea and I'm looking forward to using this. If I don't like it too much then I have a new tea pot.

I just read a review for one of these on amazon and it looks like it holds 2L max and that was to the top of the opening. I got excited about this at first but it just seems like it wouldn't work out like I need it to. Anyone know of any larger coffee pots?

I saw 14 cup pots online. I'd prefer a teapot style designed for the stovetop. Those are meant to be heated to a boil.

A cup of tea is 6 oz.

Well I tested mine today.. went from boiling to iced water with no problem. I worked with 1.5l of water and 6.3 oz of DME. With yeast and nutrients it put me ~2l. Or right below the metal band of the handle. For my needs it will do until I'm able to get a bigger vessel.

Like I said this was free and laying around so all in all I can't complain!
