Just came back from a local store restaurant supply store. $120 for 6 gallon SS pot. Don't want to deal with the weak aluminum.

Any places online I can get that for under $100 or are there other local places I should look like?

Look around at Restaurant supply stores, in Detroit there are new and used places (like when a places goes out of business.)

Are there any decent places online I can find those in? I need to get some 1L swing-top bottles and a 3 gallon carboy for a secondary, since I want to do 2.5 gallon batches, until I have learned how to brew well.

You can try here. This company runs a lot of restaurant related businesses here in central PA and I've had a great experience dealing with them.

weak aluminum ?? Damn, guess I should stop flying on planes. I use a nice 10 gallon heavy duty aluminum, got it at Smart and Final for about $70. It heats up faster than stainless, and the price is more reasonable.

I implied weakness due to the metal being finicky with most cleaning solutions.

Take a ride to local spots that tend to deal in discount clothes and home goods. Around here we have TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Last week I picked up a SS 8 gallon pot for $70.

The local Wal-Mart has big old turkey fryer-style aluminum pots for around $30 or so. They're stashed away in back of my local one but they're there.
