As big as you can get. I used to do 23L batches in an 8L stockpot and it was a messy nightmare. I've since got a 17L one which allows for 10L of wort and plenty of headspace, though I've also converted to full boil which is far easier. I bought my big stockpot in Living Island on Talbot Street.

Use the amount of extract for the 23L brew with 17L of water and top up to the desired volume afterwards. Works well. I've done extract brews down to 50% of the final volume without any problems.
