Im making the switch to all grain..I have built myself a mash tun from a Cooler and some brass fittings from home depot. All I need now is a good quality Boil Kettle. Im Considering a Polarware 7.5 gallon Kettle that comes equipped with a Ball valve and a Thermometer from amazon for about 120 bucks.
Ive considered Buying a keg from my local liquor store of something cheap and keeping the keg (for the price of the 30 dollar deposit) and converting that to a keggle (in the event that I want to do 10 gallon brews in the relatively near future)
Basically I need some advice from experienced all grain brewers about which way to go with my soon to be kettle. Being that you guys know the average amount of grain and water that will be needed, which would be the best way to go?
I dont want to buy a kettle only to buy another in 6 months because I bought one which was too small...every piece of advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in Advance
