I need help on this too!
Let me tell you how i do my brew.
I have just one alumino pot, its hold 50L (13gal) i do my mash in there over the stove, then i move the grains to my botltling bucket and sparge the wort in my pot to boil it, after the boil done, i coll it down, and with a hose i siphon it to the carboy.
I need to know, can i put a ball lock in this pot and a ss braid on it, to mash the grains and boil the wort? when the boils done, just open the valve and the hops will been filter? Its need to be a special ball lock? i was loooking one i few days ago, and the ball inside is made with plastic. it will dont melt during the boil?
or perhaps i should just buy another pot to do it?
need help pleasse!
