Anticipate Boil-Over

Big brew pots prevent boil-over. Oh sure, it sounds simple, but such a basic fact can easily hurt a beginner. So, keep in mind that the boil can really foam up when malt extracts are added to a boiling pot. Keep one hand ready to lower the heat, and lower the risk by using a pot about 20-30 percent greater in capacity than the boil volume.
