I have a couple of sources for copper pots but they are expensive.  I think
the 10 gallon ones that I really liked where about $400.  

I will eventually own one because my goal is to eventually recreate a period
beer, from a periods recipe, with periods techniques and equipment.

I'm in search of a good copper kettle for brewing, to capture the proper
flavor.  The best tea is made with water heated in a copper tea kettle, and
think I might like the flavor addition of the copper.  (Besides, Ox is
with getting Markham _really_ right.)  The best fudge is made in copper
kettles.  And so on, and so forth.  I'm watching ebay as you read this,
the new ones I've found run upwards of 100$, and the ones I liked best were
around 800$.
