Actually, I found 2 smaller kettles to be sufficient. I use a 20 quart
costing $35 and a 15.5 quart at $18. I have an electric stove. This allows
me to use two burners. I am sure the time to reach boil with one burner
would exceed my patience. For a mash, I can use the 20 q kettle, and fit
it in the oven to maintain the temp.
In the summer, I want to keep the heat and humidity outdoors, so converted
keg with Cajun cooker.
