Pot size help

I would like to buy another Blichmann pot but dont know if I should get a 15 or 20 gal.
I started off with a 10 brew pot with a mash cooler. Wife got me a 15 gal with false bottom for xmas and have not used it yet for a mash. I have only brewed 5 gal batches but might get into 10 gal as more friends are interested.
My thought is get the 20 and use as a hlt when doing 5 gal batches with 15 gal mash and 10 gal boil.
then when I do 10 gal batches use the 10 gal as a hlt with 15 gal mash and 20 gal boil. Or would the 15 gal be able to handle it?

Thanks

Get the 20 gallon pot.

The 15 can handle it, but I agree, go with the 20. I do 10 gallon batches and have a 15 G as my BK, wish I would have spent a few more bucks and gotten a 20G.

I have a 15g and 10 gallon batches boil over sometimes. A 20g would be nice, but if you do mostly 5 gallon batches and the occasional 10 gallon. A 15g kettle will do just fine. If you can find a keggle they work great

The keggle works but I would go with a 20gal.

I’ve never brewed a beer where I had too much pot.
