I'm finally going to dump my enamelled canning pot and buy a real SS
brew kettle. I have talked to a friend of mine who owns a restaurant
about getting it through her supplier (and using her discount).
However, there are about 150 different choices so I could use some
help on the parameters.

What size do most people get? Assuming I make 5 gallon
batches is 24-30 quarts about right?

What gauge SS? I will probably use it on my electric stove
until I get a King Kooker (or some other prpose stove).

What dimemsions? Should I get a tall, skinny pot or fat,
short pot?

Is a cooper bottom important?

About a year ago I found a hop called "Pride of Ringwood" at my local
supplier. I used it in an IPA and loved the result. I have been
looking for them ever since and have yet to find them. Has any one
seen these elusive hops. A mail order place that had them would be
great. Thanks.
