I made marks on the inside of my kettle starting at 5 gallons. That's what I use now.
How did you mark it? Mine is imprinted every 2 gallons and I want it to show quarter gallon increments. Dremel?
If you have a steel kettle I wouldn't dremel it.
Mine is aluminum so just a light scratch with a screwdriver- I also highlight it with a sharpie from time to time since it tends to scrub off.
I measured my kettle and figured out the volume per inches. I made my marks and then double checked it by adding a gallon at a time.
Also if you know the gallon per inch you can use a ruler to measure from the top of the kettle to the surface of the wort. This is quite accurate.
Just remember that wort expands and contracts as it heats and cools.
