Just curious, it seems like it could be something extra to keep clean, etc... and didn't know if when you do use it, if you'd hook up a line to it or anything?
As the pot gets bigger they get heavy...

I use an immersion chiller and then an autosiphon. If you want to flow hot wort through a counter-flow chiller or pump it somewhere, the plastic siphon becomes less useable...

I started with a 5 gallon SS pot for $45 at Target. I added a $75 36 quart SS Bayou Classic pot (on Amazon). The 5 gallon is still used for heating mash and sparge water, so it isn't a waste and is better sized for stovetop duty...

thanks for making this clear. Trying to compose, type and take care of our 8 month old son can make multi-tasking a bit difficult.
