Default This is how you know you've gone off the deep end

Just arrived....

20 gallon stainless-steel Megapot w/ ball-valve. This thing is massive (compared to the 7.5 gallon kettle I've been using).

Only complaint is that it had a small dent in the side.. gonna call Northern Brewer tomorrow to see what they do in that case.

While that is impressive, this is the very definition of swimming in the deep end:

Yeah, you would have to go far beyond a 20 gal pot to be included in the deep-end thread... I think john beere had a pot that was well beyond 50 once.

That being said. I would probably drop a nut to have a 20 gal pot! I'm jealous!!!!

My wifey is PO'ed with only 25 Corny's in my collection.
