In priority I think a big pot is #1, #2 is drain, #3 is screen, #4 is thermometer and #5 is sight tube

I like this priority list,

When topping off your fermenter to 5gal should the water be boiled first?

Thanks for the input so far! I do like the Blichmann Bollermaker 10 gal, with all the options but a bit on the pricey side. I like the keggle too, but it looks so big. I think a sight glass is a must have option.

General Homebrew Discussion / Yeast starter or additional yeast packs

Brew a German pils using Wyeast 2308 Munich Lager.
Can I use (2) packs of yeast and not do a starter?

So...how much yeast should you pitch for a 5 gal batch? I've been doing a one smack pack yeast starter a day or two before my brew day. Is this short for a G-Lager? Should I start sooner, then add more DME @ 1.04 one more time or even two times? I just started doing yeast starters.

How long do you need to bottle condition? When kegging, do you still condition?
