I use an aluminum ruler and have a page of volume/height on the wall. One of these days I'll etch my kettle......maybe......if I have time

You can purchase it through Amazon.ca:

You can also buy it at some beer supply stores for a better price:

Here's a great tutorial on etching your kettles:

It uses household vinegar rather than citric acid, so is much easier (and less expensive) to obtain.
