I am still really new to brewing and I have finished building my panel, I am looking at buying kettles now and wanted some input before I dropped the money. I am torn between 10 gal and 20 gal kettles. I want to get 20's but I dont think I will brew 10 gal batches very often if ever at the moment. I know its never a bad thing to buy bigger but if I am only wanting to do 5 gal batches should I stick to 10 gal kettles? I don't know if there are issues with brewing a 5 gallon batch in a 20 gallon kettle either. I appreciate the input!!
If you only ever plan on brewing 5 gal batches then 10 gal kettles will work.
If you ever want to brew 10 gallon batches then 10 gal kettles will not be big enough.
You can brew 5 gallon batches in 20 gallon kettles as long as you stick with my build instructions (i.e. install the heating elements as low as possible).
