    Here you go mate just filled it to see how much it held at it held 14 L with room to spare so plenty big enough.
    The tap seems fine now it's not leaking anymore.
    Check photo with 2 L bottle next to it so you get an idea of size.
    Needs a good clean by will chuck it in the washer.

    I think your stand matt but with its on fire because soon we will have no room to cook on, so if we off set a square fire just for the pot or make the fire pit in to a l shape and put your rack on the end then its job sorted ;)
