So I am attempting my 1st 10 Gal AG batch this afternoon, but I see 1 area where I am going to have a problem. My equipment is a 15 Gal pot and a 60Qt. Mashtun w/ braid, I batch sparge. My problem lies in the fact that I only have 1 vessel that can heat enough strike and sparge water. Usually I run my 1st runnings into a secondary pot (only 3.5 gal capacity or so) and havent had a problem. But my 1st runnings on this batch will be more than the pot can handle. So, the questions is, what do I use to hold 1st runnings until I add my sparge watewr to the mash tun?
Edit: Homer bucket? Can it withstand the heat?
