Great service and products
I do a full boil and use it outside on a propane burner. Works great, cleans up easily

Great yeast
This is a great kettle for full boils of low to medium gravity all grain5-5.5 gallon beers. If you like high gravity beers, go with a larger kettle. The reason for 4 stars is that there was some scratches on the bottom and sides of the kettle but were only cosmetic and didn't affect functionality. I contacted NB and they addressed my concerns. I recommend this to anyone

The Megapot is very nice quality and heavy. The stainless is very thick and I expect to be using it for a long time. My first one arrived with a lid that didn't fit tightly but the excellent customer service staff at Northern Brewer quickly replaced it. Also the M is now stamped and not etched as in the picture.

A preferred yeast for winter fermentations
This bad boy is really a killer piece of hardware that can last a lifetime. Due to time restraints I'm primarily an extract brewer and this 8 gallon pot makes for the ideal vessel for full volume extract boils with specialty grains (up to 6 to 6.5 gallons) with ample head space remaining. Quality of my beer has been great coming out of this guy and the internal gradations help when the boil ends to ensure I'm around the 5 gallon mark, plus the silicon wrapped handles make for quick and painless boil-over saves. Just the perfect brewers kettle! A must have in my book!

I have brewed with 2565 about 20 times. It produces a very authentic Kolsch With low mash temperatures I have had apparent attenuation consistently in the mid 80 % range. As expected, this produces a very dry beer. Flavor is minimal, no esters. I have also made some very nice Alts with this yeast. Keep grain bills very simple and ferment at the low end of the temperature range for really clean beers.

Great product
I've used this yeast about half a dozen times now. It has worked great for my kolsch recipe, but I have used it for other styles just because the low ferm temps are really convenient for me. This yeast has been a beast every time I've used it...gets started pretty quick and finishes pretty quick as well...I usually ferment in the low 50's for the first two weeks....this stuff can work well at 50 degrees. Flocculation results have been above and beyond on every use.

Great Kolsch yeast!
I've used this yeast several times and have had great results each time. For a kolsch, I usually mash around 148 degrees or a little lower and ferment around 60 degrees. This usually gives me the dry taste that I like in a kolsch. Highly recommended.
