Hello, I need some help finding a brewpot.

I'm a kitchen brewer and i am starting all grain batches so I need a 10 gallon brewpot (5 gal. batches). would be a problem except that the over stove microwave limits the height of the pot to about 12 in. max.

Anyone know where i can find a short and fat pot?

(And please don't tell me to get rid of the micro or to buy one of the propane burners, that doesn't answer the question. SWMBO said i cant remove the micro)

I know Update International kettles are more round than tall. This one is $105: The Update aluminum kettles are taller than round.

Twelve inches from burner to microwave seems a little tight. You live on a boat? J/K.

I'd look for a canning pot ... They tend to be extra wide to fit extra jars ...

Pretty sure that's not to code.
