I have a 15 gallon polarware brew kettle that I have barely used since I have only done 2 10 gallon batches. I am asking 150 since it is in such great condition. Please PM if you are interested or need shipping costs. I would only ask the actual cost to ship to you.
I really depends how much you drink and what types of beers you like, the heavier the beer the longer the what time. My extract brew time is around 3 hours from beginning to end with a 5 gallon 60 minute boil so i can do two brews in one day pretty easy. That being said when I started brewing...
I quickly learned to buy the equipment that I would want and would grow into... saved some major bucks that way even though it was a little more expensive up front. Some of my overspending included buying a 4 gallon kettle followed by a 7 gallon rather than just going to the 10 gallon. From your...

As for the secondary helping to clear the beer, I have found that my wheat beers from...
I keep the whole works in the fridge especially if my grain is already cracked, otherwise the rest is pretty stable in a cool place until you brew. I keep several ingredients on hand in case of emergencies and haven't run into any issues. Liquid extract has a timeline on it so you want to make...
I use my 15 gallon kettle on a camp chef stove and have no problem getting to a boil and then some. For my 10 gallon batches I still run them through my beer software to properly scale the amounts. I have found that just doubling does;t always get the same numbers as the volumes are bigger which...
