Not sure if it's too late, but it's 8-5/8"...

I filled the pot a gallon at a time and marked my spoon with each gallon, of course I did that with my SS hose assemby thing, so maybe make it 8-1/2" ...

Good question. But does the pot have a South African Rim or a North American Rim. That combined with your elevation and baromentric pressure reading you should be able to calculate exactly 5.5 gallons in the pot unless of course you are using the metric system.

Default Heh

Well this has been an amusing little discussion. I would have to say that it is a true eleven gallon pot, full right to the top.

I base this on the idea is that nobody brews or boils 11 gallons. Unless we want to assume that somebody wants to be the Spinal Tap of the brewing/boiling world.

So for practical use purposes its a 10 gallon pot with 1 gallon headroom, but marketed at its full capacity for reasons that range from marketing to truth in advertising.

I think the reason we generally don't trust container size is because of the automotive industry. Gasoline tanks in cars generally hold a little more than their official rating.

That's my take, anyway.
