I'm looking for an economical 5-6 gal. brewpot that I can pick up this weekend? Anyone have any suggestions on where to buy one? I would like to stay under $30 since this is only a temporary solution.

If its temporary, hit up your local walmart or target. They usually have some decent stock pots for short money

Due to recent economic crisis, stock market crash, budget cuts, and the rising cost of everything including taxes: "The Light at the End of The Tunnel" has been turned off.

Chicagoland winemakers in Elmhurst has a 20 quart stainless steel stock pot for around $30 or $35. It's not the thickest walled pot, but it should do.

Also look for a local restaurant supply store.

If you are in the near north suburbs you can try the Super H mart next to the Home Depot in Niles. I've seen SS pots in that size range there before. Might cost a couple extra $$, but not much.
