A breakthrough in the world of high quality kettles! MegaPot 1.2™ is a masterpiece, not just another steel pot. Every detail has been thought through to enhance the homebrewing experience. Crafted of stainless steel for ease of cleaning. Stay cool silicone handles on the kettle and lid serve to limit scorching! The handles are riveted in place to aid in lifting a hot liquid-filled pot. No weld failures here! A polished stainless steel band surrounds the upper rim, reinforcing rigidity of the pot while adding a little bling. And that's not all. We've added the feature that every brewer wants in a kettle - graduated volume markers inside the kettle - one at each gallon. No more need for a sight glass! The heart of the kettle is a 4mm thick Tri-Clad bottom- made specifically for even heat distribution. The 1.2 proportion of MegaPot has been scientifically designed to promote a vigorous boil and reduce off-flavors. And last of all, the MegaPot 1.2 logo is stamped on every kettle. When you have the best, show it off!

Great brew kettle!
Quality brew pot. Heavy gauge stainless steel with a smooth finish, which makes cleaning much easier than the rough aluminum pot I had before. The stainless ball valve works great with no leaks. Gallon markers are great. Lid is very sturdy. The rubber coated handles do not get hot at all. I do wish it would come with some sort of dip tube, though, as the valve is fairly high off the bottom.

So Far So Good
I have used this kettle twice now (one extract and on all-grain) and I am definitely happy with it. Very easy to assemble and durably made.

Very good quality pot
Very good quality pot. The bottom seems thick enough to avoid burning and the handles are attached well. Both the valve and thermometer haven't leaked since I bought this. I'm using this as my HLT in my HERMS system, so cleanup is simple. It is deeper and narrower than my other 10 gallon pot, so I use that one instead for my boil kettle to increase surface area and evaporation. Otherwise, I can't find a flaw in this pot.

Great Upgrade
I was using an 8 gal MegaPot and had a slight boil over. I upgraded to the 10 gallon MegaPot with a ball valve. No more boiling over and no more syphoning.

Love it
Opted for this pot over the Boilermaker due to cost, and watching a couple videos of its design flaws (volume sight needs cleaning, no direct heat around the thermometer). Couldn't be happier with my choice. This pot is fantastic quality, and with a simple L-style attachment I picked up at my local homebrew shop on the inside of the ball valve so it draws from closer to the bottom, gets all the wort out to the very last drop.

Kettle for a lifetime
High quality kettle that will outlast any beginner kit pot you have at home. I started using it for full boils and have enjoyed it's event heating and durability. Buy with confidence.

Great Boil Kettle
This boil kettle is really awesome. I had a few problems making the gaskets for the ball valve and thermometer water tight, but I think that was mostly due to me hand-tightening them.

Great Pot
This pot is great. I think honestly that if I had purchased one of these earlier I'd be a happy boy. I previously bought 15 gal and an 8 gal pot. The 8 gal is just a wee bit small for some of my brews, but the 10 gal is a great size. I like the insulated handles and the taller configuration of this pot. I think it reaches a boil faster due to the tall rather than wide profile. All of this makes it easier to handle as well. Love it.

love this pot!
I recently switched from extract to all grain and it was all made possible by this pot! So easy to put together when I purchased it, and it's all around awesome! Definatley go with the 10 gallon kettle, you will be glad you did!

If you tried to use this as a grain tun would you lose a lot of heat over 60 minutes requiring top ups with hot water?
M A on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have 3 megabit 10 gallon kettles��_one for hot liquor tank, one for my mash tun, and one for the boil kettle. I have a false bottom and a fly sparring/recirculating sprayer on top that I use with my pump to recirculate, vorlauf and sparge. I have found that it holds the temperature nicely for the mash, recirculating and heating the water to about 170 for mash out. I do not have to add more water.. I haven�?t brewed in very cold weather however. It functions as well as my 10 gallon cooler/mash tun with the added ability to step mash, recirculate, etc.
On the 10 Gallon pot, how many gallons deep does the liquid have to be before the liquid contacts the thermometer
P M on Jan 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! The liquid covers the thermometer at just over 4 gallons. I hope that this helps! Have a great day!
I got the MegaPot with ball valve & thermometer. There were instructions for connecting the ball valve, but none for the thermometer. I assume the thermometer connection is similar to the ball valve (o-rings on inside and outside in contact with pot, but the thermometer also came with a washer. Does that go on the inside? Also, the thermometer came with teflon tape. Is that necessary?
K A on Sep 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The assembly for that is the same as the bulkhead, just with the washer between the oring and the thermometer on the outside of the kettle. The teflon tape is only needed if there is a slight leak on the thermometer threads after installation.
I have an induction electric cooktop. Is this pot compatible?
K I on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Kim,

Thank you for your question. Yes our Megapots are induction ready.

Cheers!
What is the total height to the top of the lid handle with the lid on? I'm thinking about ordering the 10 gallon for use on my gas stove. I have 18.3 inches of clearance from the the burner to the microwave.. I'm in NYC now so I can have a propane burner ... but still want to be able to at least do 5 gallon all grain batches
B E on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ben,

The overall height of the kettle with the lid is approximately 20.5 inches and without the lid it is 18.5 inches. Another option for brewing all grain with limited space would be to use a smaller say 8 gallon kettle for a lauter tun, and a cooler for a mash tun. I hope that this helps, let us know if you have any further questions!
When you order the pot with only the ball valve, is the hole/port there for installing a whirlpooling fitting?
bradm on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, that would be the sort of thing you may need to do yourself, or have done. We don't currently offer those kettles with an extra port for that purpose, sorry. One way to set up a whirlpooling system is to make a copper tube that bends down into the wort at an angle, that you hang over the edge of the kettle, fed from your pump. Using this sort of device would also speed up cooling if an immersion chiller was used. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Does the ball valve have female 1/2" NPT on both sides, and then there is a male 1/2" NPT to 1/2" barb? The pictures don't show the ball valve up close. I want to replace the barb with a female quick disconnect.
N B on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The ball valve does have 1/2 inch NPT female threads on both sides. The Isoflow bulkhead has 1/2 NPT threads on the outside and 5/8 inch threads on the inside to allow for the larger diameter of the dip tube. Quick disconnects will work with the ball valve.
What is the trick to installing the dip tube into the bulkhead for the ball valve ? I tried for at least half hour to no avail
to install it. I used CIP Sanitary Lubricant and that didn't work either.
T H on Oct 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Wetting the o-ring and twisting back and forth while installing for the first time is very helpful. It goes in with a bit more ease as it starts to break in. Try to ensure that the diptube is going straight in and not at an angle.

Is it ok to use the stainless brewpot with siphon as a priming bucket on bottling day? Just not sure if metal vs. plastic would affect anything.
C A on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Cleaned and sanitized stainless steel would be a fine thing to use. The kettle dimensions and valve height off the bottom would result in it being harder to get all the beer out. It's kind of an over engineered solution to an issue that a bottling bucket is designed for...so I think it would be more of a hassle than the bottling bucket is worth. I hope this helps! Cheers! James J.
How far from the bottom of the pot is the ball valve located? I would like to use this pot with the Blichmann HopBlocker and it requires the valve to be 3" from the bottom.
J O on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When we drill these pots the hole is approximately 1/2" from the bottom. You basically need the exact same dip tube as a boilermaker

or a dip tube with the same diameter and same height. Or it could be modified to fit.
Is this pot induction ready?
J T on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does work with induction. If using a portable induction cooker, make sure it is large enough to safely support the size and weight of the kettle when in use.
