I could be wrong, but I thought that MoreBeer used to have larger pots than what they are currently stocking. You might try contacting them to find out where they were sourcing those from.

Thanks guys, I just wanted to do it right and I thought. . . . "No self respecting commercial brewery would use a 55 gallon barrel just because of cleaning or laws".

If this is for commercial brewing, then everything changes, and you will likely have to get commercial grade equipment. I thought you just wanted to make big brews for you and your buddies.

That's it for sure as it runs out too fast.

yeah, 55 gallons sounds like a lot until you have a BIG party, then it quickly becomes just enough.

Where did you get the burners? I am interested in setting up a NG burner system.

BTW, I've got a 40gallon Aluminum stockpot that I only paid $110 w/shipping. It is thick enough that even though its alum, its very durable.

How much are the ss barrels and where can they be found?
