Greetings, anthropas. You can start with small batches as your goal but when you purchase a kettle you should consider larger volume rather than just-big-enough.

Welcome, Dufflebum. Cowboy or Boomer Sooner? (that's a peculiar Oklahoma thing). If just starting out gathering your brewing equipment, choose a kettle that will still work for you next year.
