I am going to make a jump into full boils by getting a 10gal MegaPot and a burner. Some questions:
- Do I need a ball valve on this kettle or not? Do you find it's easier to drain wort via the valve or just auto-siphon it out?
- If I get a ball valve, do I also need a pick-up tube inside the kettle?
- What kind of burner should I get to strike a good balance between power and economy? NB options are here.
