Awesome Brew Kettle Review by Rhodewarrior
I cannot say enough about this kettle. It felt very sturdy right out of the box. I have used it in a variety of applications, and boiling wort was great using this kettle. You will not have any issues with boil over or scorching. Highly recommend, though it is pricey, I think it is worth every penny if you plan on brewing on a regular basis. (Posted on 2/13/15)
great kettle/great price Review by GARY L.
Straight to the point,this brew kettle is a fantastic pot able to boil 5 gallon with ease .Plenty of head space to get a good rolling boiling with ease. Brewed my 1st 5 gallon Belgian dubbell w/no boil over with great ease.Might not ever need another brew kettle again .Great kettle,well worth the price. (Posted on 7/3/14)
A lot to like here Review by david
First thing I noticed was that my 10 gallon kettle is really 10 + 1 gallon many kettles don't leave that much extra room. Wort comes to boil more quickly than what I've been using. And it's a more consistent, efficient boil, such that some of my recipes are coming out a smidge more bitter--higher hop extraction rate. So I'm working with it to slightly scale hops to this new reality #economize! One thing I have not figured out yet is that my racking cane (I rack from kettle to carboy) often seems to quit too soon, leaving a lot of wort behind until I lift and pour through a fine mesh bag. Have not faced this problem with other kettles but given the many benefits of this kettle, I'm not complaining. Well done. (Posted on 5/29/14)
Good pot Review by jody
This is a good pot! I like the measure marks in the pot. Don't waste the money on the predrilled pot option, the port location will leave a gallon of liquid in the pot. The hole is too low to do some type of tubing to get close to the bottom. I am going to get a stainless 90 pipe fitting, and try and make that close enough to siphon the last gallon. The weldless valve assembly was a total joke and waste of money. The closed nipple was too short to assemble the way shown in the instructions, I had to go buy a washer from the hardware store, not stainless steel sadly, and install in this order :valve, bought washer, o-ring, pot, o-ring, nut.

Once I get a 90, I will take this pot to a welder, and have a fitting welded to the pot, problem solved, but extra money spent.

This pot is working good on my induction stove. (Posted on 4/5/14)
Quality product Review by Smokey
This is a sturdy kettle the rubber touch handles are a nice touch. We came home from dinner with friends to the package and the girls thought the kettle cost double what it did now one is asking for one to use as a lobster pot. (Posted on 3/29/14)
Stellar pot Review by Michael
I have never used a more expensive pot, and there certainly are more expensive pots, and I have never used a better one. This was a very welcome upgrade from my cheap starter pots. I can brew a full volume 5 gallon batch without having to split the batch I to two lots or using top off water. The build is excellent, very durable. I never feel nervous carrying heavy 7 gallons of hot water. This thing is built. The silicone covered handles are a nice touch, and do work as advertised. It has made a world of difference in my brewing and is an excellent upgrade. (Posted on 3/29/14)
Great Value Review by Daniel
Great pot for the price, did quite a bit of research leading up to purchase(using for all grain 5gallon brews) and this turned out to be the best pot for the price. Shipped fast and packaged well, pot looks identical to the pictures. Very high quality pot and worked great right on my gas stove. Definitely helps to have the volume markings and the silicone handles. Just buy it already. (Posted on 1/8/14)
Great kettle! Review by Matt
I was given the 8 gallon pot as a gift and absolutely love it! I'm a beginning brewer and haven't had a single issue with scorching while I figure out how to work with my burner. Also, if you're brewing 5-6 gallon batches, the extra headspace in the 8 gallon kettle is VERY helpful in preventing boilovers. (Posted on 12/29/13)
Great pot with lid flaw Review by Darin
This pot has everything going for to be the best pot on the market, however it seems to suffer from a flaw in the lid design/quality. It seems a bit thin and less durable than the pot itself, and the one I got does not lay flat - like it's warped. Granted the lid is not the most important part, however if you wanted to do any mashing in the pot you wouldn't be able to hold temp as good without a good seal. It also slides from side to side more than other pots I've used, like it's a hair too small. Needless to say it's kind of annoying given what these pots go for. (Posted on 12/26/13)
Great pot Review by Bob
This is my third brew kettle, and is the perfect pot in nearly every way. I bought the 10gal without the valve and thermometer. I intend to install my own a little differently. It is sturdy, I love the etched liquid levels, and the silicon handle covers look like they won't slide around under load. It arrived double-boxed with no damage to the substantial packaging. Unfortunately, the rim is damaged and the lid doesn't sit flat. Most expensive brew pot I've had and has the worst-fitting lid. Doesn't really hurt it functionally and not worth returning, but it could have been perfect. I assume most are fine and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this kettle to anyone. (Posted on 12/17/13)
Heavy Duty, For Sure Review by EyeMind79
For review sake, I bought the 8 gallon, with no fittings.

This thing is strong and does not feel cheap at all. I was a little bummed the Tall Boy wasn't in stock, but was willing the pay the extra price for some of the added touches this kettle has. The silicone handles are key because this thing gets hot as hell! At first I was hesitant to pay the extra price for just the handles. However, now that I have used this with a full 5.5 gallon boil, I can't imagine not having the coated handles. They provided an essential grip when lifting a huge pot full of hot wort.

There was no boil over, no scorch, and we lost very, very little to evaporation. It cleaned up really well. It also did come packaged great and I really feel I invested well. This is something I know I will have for a few years. I have even made 2 smaller all grain batches with it and a grain bag built for a 12"x12" provided to be an awesome fit.

There was a con - perhaps not con, but just some things to be aware of. First, if you do get it without fittings and do full gallon boils, this thing gets heavy. That's a plus as in it's certainly not a cheap piece of equipment, just be very careful and maybe have a friend help you. My old cheap pot I could lift full, but this bad boy I certainly need help with.

Secondly, and this really depends on your setup, it took a good while to get heated up. Now I use my kitchen stove - not really ideal for this, but just a head's up for anyone like me waiting to invest in a burner.

In a nutshell, I'm glad I got this over the Tall Boy. (Posted on 11/1/13)
Tall Boy Twin? Review by Friz
I too got frustrated with the out of stock Tall Boy kettles so when this popped up I figured Northern was improving on the Tall Boy series of kettles.I bought the 10 gallon for a fair price,after checking elsewhere online,and have boiled two batches in it,not a lick of scortching!It was difficult reading the internal markings during boil but they are a great addition to a fantastic kettle! Heavy duty for HEAVY DUTY! (Posted on 10/25/13)
A big improvement on my Cajun Cooker Review by Craig
I've been using an unclad 11 Gal. Cajun Cooker for the past 5 years...good deal for all stainless and about $100. Just got my 10 gal. Megapot earlier this week and brewed with it the first time today. I use a banjo burner and boil over, scorching and uneven heating were a problem with my earlier pot. The clad bottom eliminated all of those problems. The built in brewmometer and ball valve were also nice additions. The temperature was more accurate than my previous dial thermometer and transfer time using the ball valve was less than half the time of using a racking cane, One problem though...the plastic cover on the handle of the ball valve started to melt and burn once I approached the boiling temperature. Make sure that you remove it before using. It was OK when heating the liquor and sparge water, though smelled, but the higher temperature when boiling was enough to do the plastic in.

Awesome Brew Kettle!!! Review by LiquidOrb
For a long time I've been waiting for the Tall Boy kettle to get back in stock. However, during my wait this new kettle showed up on the website with zero reviews so I was a little bit hesitant to buy it. Not knowing when the Tall Boys would come back I caved and ordered x3 15 gallon Megapots. I must say these kettles are awesome!!! They showed up today at my doorstep (quickly) and were packaged very well (none of them had any dents in them) so that right off the bat made me happy. But wait there's more. They are built very solid with riveted handles and even have silicone on them which is a nice touch because I'm tired of burning my hands on the kettles I have now. Basically I can copy/paste the description above in this review here because what you read is what you get. I think the coolest thing is the liquid levels etched inside. No more guessing with how much liquid is in the kettle. Overall these kettles are SOLID and on top of being very well built, they are also very aesthetically pleasing. I'm happy to have these kettles as part of my setup and you cannot beat them for the price. (Posted on 10/9/13)
