Anybody have a good estimation of boil-off volume for a 90 minute boil in a 15.5 gallon keg? I recently converted a keg to a kettle and am brewing a 10 gallon batch in it this weekend. For my five gallon batches in a 10 gallon kettle, I usually boil 7.5 gallons to end up with 5.5 gallons after chilling. What's a good pre-boil volume to end up with approx. 11 gallons going into the fermenters? I'm guessing 13 or 13.5 gallons...

Thanks!

If you have the kettle on the same flame, the boil off should be about the same.
