That size is big enough to do an AG batch, but just barely. I typically start with 7.5 gallons in the brew kettle to get a 5 gallon batch, and that pot would only allow for small amount of bubbling during the hot break. I have a 48 quart kettle and do not usually have boil over problems because of the extra space. Trust me, when you do AG, you will have a lot more hot break than with extract. I used to boil in a 30 quart pot, and I never did a full boil in that one, as I would boil over.

I see the 56 quart size of the same item is $20 more. Personally I would spend the a little extra money on that.

I have a 36 qt, and definately wish I had a bigger pot. At least another gallon. It works ok for AG, but you really got to watch it.

I am looking at building the keg thing. Probably not til summer.
