Agreed! I started with AG at the advice of some HB buddies. Glad I did!

I would really recommend you getting a 15 gallon pot or converting a sanke keg. If you are like me then after you get a few 5 gallon batches done and find a recipe that you really like you will want to make 10 gallons at a time. It doesn't take that much longer and you get twice the beer.

Thanks for the info! That looks awesome, but unfortunately, we have plans already today.

How hard was that...we're not exactly splitting atoms here folks...
This is how easy it appears to me as well. I really appreciate everyone's input so far!
