Got a new pot. 9 gallon SS with two welded fittings for a ball valve and a thermometer. I used it for the first time this weekend to brew an Octoberfest. It made brewing so much easier. Its a gallon bigger than my old pot, and I came no where near a boil over because of it. Having the thermometer and valve built in made things very simple too. It was the easiest brew night for me ever. Lager ready in ~2 months.

Any of you guys do grain only brewing? Is it a huge pain in the but?

Doing all grain is supposed to be much cheaper than using extract, but I came out the same because I did a big brew that came out close to 8%. Regardless you're coming out cheaper than if you bought retail beers. I did a breakfast stout, and came out about $1.10 per bottle. Similar beers like the one by founders can run $4 a bottle or $10-12 a 4 pack. Same argument applies to the octoberfest I did before that one which came in at 7.5%.
