36 quart for $35 also a good deal.

Non ref link

I use this burner and this kettle.

u/zaviex · 4 pointsr/Homebrewing

It's stainless steel.

It was the first time we had used it and we cleaned it lightly with tap water. I'm cleaning it with PBW right now. We had used a smaller and lighter pot for our previous biab try's. The pot is certainly my suspicion as well

You can drain your runnings into a fermenting bucket, and then pour that into the kettle when you have the correct volume. It's what I do.

I have a 36 qt (9 gal) brew kettle and that's fine for a 5 to 5.5 gallon boil (starting with about 6.5 gallons, usually). $72 with Amazon Prime (not sure how much if you don't have Prime).

I may have just gotten too cautious with the trub as I was siphoning, but I stopped as soon as everything I was sucking up was extremely cloudy, which could have been about a .5 - 1 gal left still. Also I don't know if 85 degree humid weather in the south caused any faster boil off. But my kettle is definitely a good bit taller than wide (like this one) and I had 12lbs of grain.

u/bifftradwell · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I see you have a mash paddle in there, but I don't see a mash tun. Are you going to BIAB or use extract? Then I don't think you need the paddle.

Or do you already have a tun lying around?

If you want an even sweeter all-grain system, consider an extra pot - I'd get one a little oversized, maybe this 36-quart Bayou classic. Then use your smaller pot for hot liquor, and the big pot for boiling a full volume.

You're going to have a hard time boiling 5 gallons of wort in a 20-quart pot. At best I could fit 4.5 gallons in mine, and I had to be very careful for boilovers - I recommend Fermcap-S to help control the foam; 2 drops per gallon as you heat to a boil.

This pot rules. Hands down, I love this pot and the price for its size is great. Used it a ton, one of the best purchases I've made.

u/testingapril · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

No spigot versions of the 36 and 44 quart pots are on a heck of a sale too. 36 is $52.61 and the 44 is $67.70

44 should be perfect for 5 gallon BIAB.

Here are some pots to consider:

u/crux23 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

So, just to clarify, most homebrewers will start out by doing a partial boil. This basically means that you will only be boiling ~3 gallons of water to brew the beer, and then adding cool water to your wort once it is in the primary before you pitch the yeast. Because of this, most homebrewers will start with a 4 gallon kettle and then upgrade to a bigger one later on down the road.

I did something very similar to Ardentfrost. I definitely agree with what he's saying about kettles. On one hand, you're trying to save money for your first batch by not buying a 7.5 gallon kettle (and wort chiller). On the other hand, you don't want to have to buy a 4 gallon kettle and then a 7.5 gallon kettle in a few months. I ended up buying a 3 gallon Graniteware kettle, a 7.5 gallon aluminum kettle from craigslist, and finally a 36 qt. stainless from amazon. Fortunately, my first two pots were only $20 apiece, and I can probably sell them both on craigslist for just as much.

Like Ardentfrost said, my 36 qt. kettle is too big for an ice bath in my sink, but I already have a wort chiller.

u/Messiah · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Wort chiller or build an AG set up. I imagine I got my wort chiller before I went all grain or at the same time. Can't recall. For AG I used this. some of the part number changed like 3-4 years ago, so now probably even more so. I bought an 40 qt aluminum kettle for about the cost of this, but I would have rather bought this.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

This would probably work well. As you can see most of the reviews are for homebrewing.

An aluminum option that I used until very recently. I recommend doing 80 minute boils with it so the hot break settles before adding the hops, otherwise it will boil over. I BIAB with it and it works great for that.

u/thom612 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I've brewed maybe 20 all grain batches in one of these and it's held up great, especially given the price.

u/BrewCrewKevin · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Cool! Welcome!

The Mr. Beer kits are a great inexpensive way to find out if it's going to interest you. If you like it, here's what I would look into:

  1. If you want to get into extract, you'll purchase a kit like this one. Of these sort of kits, I recommend cheaper the better. They all include the basics. the difference is usually upgrading the plastic buckets for glass carboys. That's not necessary, and if you decide you want to upgrade, you can build onto your kit from there.
  2. In addition, you'll need a large kettle. If you ever plan on going all-grain, I'd go at least 8-9 gallons like This guy. They can get pricey... especially with valves and thermometers in them. Shop around.
  3. Get some reading. Like others have suggested, How to Brew by John Palmer is great. Also Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian. That ones a bit outdated, but still a great read.
  4. Forums will help a ton. This community here, or the one at are both great resources. There are plenty more out there like beeradvocate, morebeer, etc.
  5. Podcasts. I love them. I listen to the Brewing Network quite a bit. Basic Brewing Radio is another good one.

    As far as tips for starting here: Sanitize, Sanitize. Patience. Time. Sanitize.
    Have fun!!

I would start with 6 gallon bucket $8.50 compared to morebeer buy a spigot and airlock as a starting point. Look for a sale on a 7 gallon pot and I think your good.
