My wife bought me a 10 gallon SS Vollrath stockpot and cover as a BD present around 15 years ago. It was great. However, I converted a 1/2 barrel (15.5 gal) sankey keg for my brew kettle (and another for my HLT). I use a cooler for a mash tun, a la Denny Conn.
The stockpot and cover are now used as an "open" fermenter for fruit beers and meads. It is perfect for 7 gallon primary fruit fermentations. Just boil a covered inch or two of water in it for 15 minutes and it is sanitized and ready to ferment. By open fermenter I mean the cover is placed on the stockpot and the carbon dioxide blows out from under the cover - no airlock needed.
