Five bucks? In my experience they want at least a dollar per quart.

Thinking of going to full boil if I get it. Anyone do full boils (starting with 6.5 gallons) in an 8 gallon pot? I know I would be cutting it close for boil over, just trying to gage "how close".

That pot will work great but can be a bit touchy for 6.5 gal full boils. We used an aluminum 32 qt. for the first year and it served us well... After we moved up to 7 gal batches it became real interesting. Times are hard but it really helps to get the biggest pot you can afford. We ended up obtaining a 15 gal ss pot and it made brewing day much more enjoyable and worry free. The 15 gal ss doesn't make better beer, just easier beer. A 10 or 15 gal aluminum pot would work just as well, but at less than $90.00 for a 15 gal ss pot, the price differences are less dramatic.... Have fun with whatever you buy...

Sorry but this is just retarded. Everyone knows that is not true.
