Just a bigger pot and a bigger cooler!
I've been using a 32 qt cooler as a MLT and it maxes out at about 12lbs of grain. You can't do a full boil in a 5gal pot. Look for 8gal min, I would go 10-15 gal if possible. They will be handy in the future.
You have to heat it, sweet lady propane works for me.
Here's a decent deal on a 15 gal pot:
LOL, I just bought this. 67$ with shipping and I have a bulkhead/valve that I got from bargainfittings today just waiting. Looks like my 8gal pot is now my HLT.
