Do you have the standard 12" cut ?
If I went ahead and do as I say it would leave me with a bit more safety net for the boil overs.
If I were boiling in a kettle that was too small, I would probably start with my final volume (excluding boil off volume) and add water throughout the boil to keep the volume constant. It will kill your boil with each addition and be a pain, but should leave some space for breathing room.
I could use the final runnings to match the boil off volume. And if i do higher gravity beer the mash tun will be a bit too small too for 10g batch. I will stick to 5-8 gal batches for these.
I'm desgning my first system, the first 4-5 batches I did were all stove top extract + partial mash and one all grain brew in a bag from a propane burner(turker fryer I hate it), so I don't know if it's going to be the way I will brew for a long time or not, There will be place for adjustement/improvements/upgrades as I go. I'm not sure if I want to drop all the cash on these keggle to replace them with pots or bigger system. My LHMS bought SS 3 layer pots from china. I think 70 L and 80L (18gal) are like 160 $. I got a ss head chugger pump, 50a gfci spa panel, 2 high density element 5500w. I still have to choose to order pid ssr from auber ins. in one go or to buy a cheap pwm to get started and add more as I go. Single vessel biab electric would be fantastic space wise for now.
The guy has high tech equipement doing custom machining etc. I think he will have a TIG welder working for him. I will contact him after the holidays.
