MegaPot 1.2™ Brew Kettle

Product Review (submitted on May 29, 2014):
First thing I noticed was that my 10 gallon kettle is really 10 + 1 gallon headspace...so 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.
