That looks great, if you got that filled to the top you could easy serve 150 people.
Nice to see fellow curry obsessed, posting on cR0.

I have similar, but they call them Stewpans, which are wider, rather than tall.
i.e. 45cm wide 20cm tall = 50ltrs

The thicker the gauge Ally the better, usually 303mm these days, but the old ones were about 6mm.

curry on ;)

Yep, I used it when I first started all grain brewing but moved onto using a baby burco that I could control the heat on.

Yep my one is about 6mm, got it off Ebay, and sold the thinner one i had and got my money back, yayyy, I find making the base up quite therapeutic, I was also lucky to get a virtually unused commercial blender, i was fed up with the white one we had getting all stained,
Migrated to here from "another place" lol, i find it a tad more relaxed ;)

curry on ;)

I use a 10 litre stainless steel pot (which has a reasonably thick base). It's OPA-brand, but not sure if you can get those in the UK.

2,5Kg of onions (plus other ingredients), brings it very close to the top lip. It is large enough that I only need to make base 2-3 times a year.
