The bigger the BETTER - As, once you get the hang of things - you will step up to grain spawn & bulks subs.

I bought a mirro 8 qt at walmart for $40... it holds up to 7 pint jars or 4 quart jars. never tried half pints.

As my pupils fluttered and tried to fly out of my skull I asked myself, "Is THIS what you want?".
Screaming until my lungs bled, I simply replied "No!"

Get the 8 qt like mentioned above.

My first one was a 6 qt.
Only held 1 Qt jar. = sucks.

The next one hapened to be the 8 at mentioned above at WalMart. For only $40, it isn't an AA, but it does hold 4 Qt jars snug, like mentioned. As long as you aren't doing huge grows like HippieChick or scatmanrav do, it will get you a lot further along.

Fuck those 4 quart things, they'll do like 1 quart jar at a time. They provide WET weight..a 22 quart only holds 10 quart jars...you get a small cooker, you'll regret it later.

I've gotten 2, 22 quart-ers off ebay for a TOTAL of 50 bucks.
