cooking pot question

Postby Lampie » Tue 18 Feb, 2014 1:13 pm

I am browsing a bit for cooking pots to do some extract brewing and looking at cooking pots. I did not expect them to be that expensive :faint:.

If i look at a 10 liter pot its €25 and the 15 liter pots are almost double that prize..

so does the size realy matter that much (the female readers will answer yes)? or can I boil 9 liters for example to get the same result? the left over liter is a bit of headspace for foam.

It makes a big difference IMO. The hop utilisation increases with the volume of water/beer.

I got mine off of eBay for around £20 iirc. Not so sure how well you will do looking locally.

i should not be so dutch and save up a bit and browse around a bit. did not look on ebay and on a dutch marketplace. Found a 21 liter 37 euro and delivery costs 6 euro its 43 euro (about £35). So that is a good price can only find english and german sellers on ebay and the shipping costs are even higher than the product :P

Found a 14 liter stainless pan for a good price in the store and bought it.. I am planning to do 10 liter brews so this size should be enough to do some grain brewing in the near future..

the reason that i want to make smaller batches of beer is the limited space I have to store al the brewed stuff.. If i do some smaller brews I can store more different brews..
