Gumbo Crab Stock

Ok, this is the base for a recipe to follow, but feel free to use it.

5 gumbo crabs (these are crabs with imperfections like only 1 claw)
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 bay leaves
2 lemons, halved
12 black peppercorns, crushed

Combine all with 2.5 gallons (~9.5L) of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer 45 minutes or until reduced to 1.5 gallons (~5.7L).
