Question on full batch extract brewing

Post by pirate357 » Fri Sep 05, 2008 1:16 am

Hey everyone, just a quick question. I just got a 30 quart pot that I want to do a full batch boil in. Has anybody else had experience with doing a 6 gallon boil in a 7.5 gallon pot? I'd rather know now if I'm going to have a hell of a time with it up front. Thanks.

If it's ant help, I start with 6.75 gallons in an 8 gallon pot. It's a bit tight at first, so I keep a spray bottle handy to keep the foam down and watch that I don't let the heat get too high.
