MegaPot 1.2™ Brew Kettle

Product Review (submitted on October 13, 2013):
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.
