Why use anything else?
This makes everything easier during wort time. The inside level markings are marvelous when adding water. I use 5 gallon RO water, but then I am or was never sure how much additional water to add to obtain 6 gallons. The inside marking makes this super easy. ( I prefer 6 gallons to start, due to boil off) After transferring the wort, I can easily clean the inside by simply using my hand to rub accumulated debris off the inside. Drying is easy as I use a bottle tower, and simply put the brew kettle on it upside down. The handles make it easy to move, and are well insulated. ( no ouch that is hot comment) The handles are also handy for me to tie off my bags with my hops in them during boil time. Great product.

Perfect yeast for Bavarian Wheat.
Perfect yeast for Bavarian Wheat. Used in the mid 60s and up in the mid 70s. Both tasted great depending on what you like.

A great yeast
Takes a lot less to bring up to boil. No worries of boil over.

Really heats the place up
I have been making 5 to 6 gallon batches in my kitchen since 1996 and this is the best investment to date! No boil overs, wort volume at a glance, easy handling and outstanding heat distribution makes for a very pleasant brew day. I tip my glass to the inventor!

Really heats the place up
I use it for my all-grain batches. Plenty of room for wort and fits better on my ceramic electric (hate it!) range. I had been using a wider aluminum pot which went over the edge of the range. This way I lose less heat and it gives me a good concentrated boil. A 5 gal. batch comes just to the top of my wort chiller which maximizes the effectiveness of the chiller. So, more efficient to heat and cool. Excellent construction -- heavy! I'm a bit of a geezer so having my son available to tote a heavy pot of hot wort helps.Some folks have complained that the logo is stamped on not lasered. Since I don't keep it on my mantlepiece for public view that aesthethic problem is not an issue!If you are doing all-grain I can recommend this pot.

Always a reliable strain
I mainly brew 5 gallon extract kits but I hope to make the transition to all grain. I purchased the 8 gallon Megapot 1.2 because I could use it for both extract and all grain brewing. I have brewed a couple of 5 gallon kits using the Megapot to do a full boil. It does that task perfectly. It is well built and I feel confident lifting it after the boil. The handles feel solid and the silicon grips protect my hands. On my last brew, the weather did not allow me to brew outside so I used the Megapot on my gas cooktop. It is large enough that I can use two burners - not quite as fast as my propane burner but I was able to get 6 gallons to the boil in short order. I am looking forward to trying BIAB next.

Very active fermentation
I have owned this for over a year now and love it. The quality is outstanding. It is very heavy gauge and I've never had a problem with stuff sticking/burning to the bottom. Thanks NB!

Great Yest
A great size for boiling up to a double batch, with no risk of boiling over disasters. And it was such a disaster that led me to this pot! The handles are solid and easy to hold. The only negative is that the inside surface has a brushed finish that is hard to clean, it would be better if it were smoother.

Best Wheat Yeast
I use this as my boil kettle for 5 gal extract and all grain beers. I've run 10-15 batches through it so far and have been happy with it. Very well built, solid handles, the lid actually fits decent and the 1 gal increment volume markings inside the kettle are nice. I'd buy it again!

Good upgrade to the Bavarian Hefeweizen kit
This brewpot is excellent. The bottom is thick, you get no scorch spots, spreads heat evenly. Plus, it looks awesome, and the gallon graduation marks make brew day a breeze. I love it, and am contemplating buying the 15 gallon version so I can move to 10 gallon batches. I'm proud to show my friends my brewpot!
