That's a fine pot and remember you can still do a 10 gallon partial boil with that pot.

For me there were two distinct phases of All Grain brewing; before I got a 10 gallon kettle and after I got a ten gallon kettle.

Having the extra room made all the difference in the world and removed a ton of stress on my brew day from boilovers and fear that I made a mis-calculation and made too much wort.

The ten is limiting in that I can't be doing ten or fifteen gallon batches, but I'm comfortable with that for now.
