Why limit yourself to one batch size? The 15-gallon MegaPot 1.2™ brew kettle can accommodate 5 or 10 gallon batches. This 15 gallon kettle allows plenty of space to boil up to 12 gallons of wort. Brew for yourself one day, then whip up a double-batch with a friend the next. This kettle can also serve as a mash tun for 5-7 gallon All-Grain batches using the optional false bottom. While it could handle some 10 gallon recipes, the size may limit the grain bill to low-gravity beers.

Ideal for: bringing 11-12 gallon batches to a full boil. Mash Tun for 5-7 gallon All Grain brewing. Hot Liquor Tank on 15-20 gallon All-Grain systems when paired with a larger mash tun and boil kettle.

If you are adding the Titan™ False Bottom, use the optional IsoFlow™ 3/8" Hose Barb to connect it to the bulkhead using some 3/8" high-temp tubing.

A breakthrough in the world of high quality kettles! MegaPot 1.2™ is a masterpiece, not just another steel pot. Every detail has been thought through to enhance the homebrewing experience. Crafted of stainless steel for ease of cleaning. Stay cool silicone handles on the kettle and lid serve to limit scorching! The handles are riveted in place to aid in lifting a hot liquid-filled pot. No weld failures here! A polished stainless steel band surrounds the upper rim, reinforcing rigidity of the pot while adding a little bling. And that's not all. We've added the feature that every brewer wants in a kettle - graduated volume markers inside the kettle - one at each gallon. No more need for a sight glass! The heart of the kettle is a 4mm thick Tri-Clad bottom- made specifically for even heat distribution. The 1.2 proportion of MegaPot has been scientifically designed to promote a vigorous boil and reduce off-flavors. And last of all, the MegaPot 1.2 logo is stamped on every kettle. When you have the best, show it off!

What a beauty!
This thing is built like a brick, er...brew house!

I've been using converted Sanke kegs for my brew pots for over 20 years. Always struggled with malt burned to the bottom. Not with the Mega Pot.

Just spend the money, you'll never regret it!

they don't make 'em like they used to
My biggest complaint is that 1 batch in and I'm seeing rust spots on the bottom. NB directed me to use Bar Keeper's Friend to repassivate the stainless steel, which I haven't yet done.

Otherwise the construction doesn't seem quite as nice as my older Megapot. The lid is lighter, the lip of the kettle doesn't turn out like it used to, the thermometer isn't a Blichmann like my older one is.

This used to be a pretty sweet pricepoint, but I'd now suggest spending a bit more coin and get something that (1) comes off the line as a finished product and (2) hasn't cut corners over the years.

Do yourself a favor and order up one of these!!
Needed to upgrade my brew kettle from starter kit pot. The 15 gallon size is perfect for 5 and 10 gallon BIAB batches. Very solid and thick clad base mean I won’t be replacing this thing for a long time. Oh, and did I mention it’s easy on the eyes! At a great price and fast shipping. It was a no brainer. Thank you NB

Mega pot 15 gallon
Heats real nice with thicker bottom (more even heat distribution). Internal gallon markings no real value when draining mash/sparge waters because canâ??t see them due to steam. Suppose sight glass is better but allows more potential leak points. Overall , will adjust as required & am extremely happy with mega pot and edelmettal burner combo heat ups , efficiency, and boils.

Great quality could make improvements
I like the quality, but there were welded bolts to attach spout and thermometer. The pressure fittings work ok, but my thermometer leaked in the housing.

Strong material
I switched from the basic kettle to this one to start my switch from extract toward BYAB. It's a great quality kettle, stronger than the previous one.
Word of warning, it was in a way too big for a 3 gallon boil extract since the liquid was bellow the thermometer.

No more boil over worries!!! Set it and forget it! A flush mount or welded fitting would have made it perfect.

almost perfect pot
as my title conveys, this pot is almost perfect. i just brewed my first 5 gallon BIAB with it. no worries for boil overs either. snugly fits in my utility sink for filling and cleaning. using the legs on my Edelmetal burner, i can just open the spigot and let the wort flow into my bucket. no more lifting and balancing on my lap to pour in.

my only complaints are that the lid does not securely hang on the handle as advertised. first time i tried that, the lid stayed there for a minute until slipping off and getting dented on my garage floor. also, the instructions for installing the valve and temp probe could use some updating and clarification. i managed and did a leak test with water. didn't notice any leaks overnight. yesterday during my brew i smelled something burning and saw a small caramelized drip coming from the base of the temp probe assembly. i don't know if this is due to poor quality materials or just due to my guessing at the install. seemed to only lose a drop or two. just smelled bad.

overall good pot. will not need another one in my homebrew career.

15 gal brew kettle
This kettle won't disappoint, if you decide to purchase it. The kettle is heavy with rubber coated handles and a heavy lid. I chose to only have a ball valve installed. It is a high quality stainless steel valve and was easy to install.

What ball valve is is included if you choose that as the kettle option.
S C on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Scott,

Thank you for your question. It would come with the IsoFlow kettle valve.

Cheers!
what are the dimensions?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The pot is 28" tall and 14" wide
Is there some sort of a hop blocker that I can connect to this pot?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. I use the 12" boil screen (SKU 7547) and attach it to my IsoFlow bulkhead using the /2" adapter (K085). This adapter will allow the hop screen to easily attach to the IsoFlow and EZ Clean bulkheads. I personally prefer the low-profile IsoFlow. Hope this helps.

I have the 15 gal. pot on order. I am looking to do some 5 gal. recipes in the 15 gal. pot to start out. About how many gallons are needed to reach and utilize the built-in thermometer?
J O on Sep 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a couple of these... the thermo well is at about the 4 gallon mark, maybe a touch more... so if your brewing a 5 gallon batch with a total volume of 7-7.5 gallons your good for all grain. If your extract brewing then your total volume may be a touch low.
What do I need to conect to a plate chiller ?
Steven M on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most plate chillers have male 1/2" NPT (national pipe thread) for wort and standard male garden hose fitting for Water. See details of your specific plate chiller. Any female 1/2" NPT fitting will work. Run a hose from the in-line valve on the bottom of your kettle to a female 1/2" NPT fitting. Attach fitting to plate chiller. Order hose size according to the size barb on your fitting i.e. a 3/8 barb requires a 3/8 i.d. (inner diameter) hose. Use common female garden hose fitting w/ 3/8 barb for Water in/out.
What is needed for connect to shirron chiller plate?

BEST ANSWER: The megapot barb is 1/2" so you need high temp 1/2" ID tubing. Then the wort in and out connections on the plate chiller are 1/2" threaded so you need a 1/2" female threaded barb adapter. I like the blichmann quick connectors, there are cheaper fittings that are less convenient and more expensive quick disconnects that are more convenient. Best when used with a pump or -5 plus feet of gravity feed with a hop filter in the kettle to prevent hops from clogging it
Does the pot have two ports if you don't order with thermometer so I can add one later?
H U on Jul 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: NO I believe they are pre-drilled for the thermometer. My recommendation is not to do or use a mounted thermometer. I stick a probe like a meat thermometer over the top that way its not measuring any one spot.
Can this pot be used with an induction burner (eg. Advantco IC3500)?
C A on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all of the Megapots are induction compatible.
I'm trying to upgrade my gear while utilizing as much of my current gear as possible. Does this allow me to use my Silver Serpent if I do five gallon batches?
B R on Jan 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. With the chiller hanging on the lip of the kettle the coil will be suspended between the 2 and 5 gallon marks.
Considering a 15gal pot for mashing. Does the lid come with a notch to allow a recirculating tube set up?
K B on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thew lid is not notched but you would be able to do it yourself.

ROY Q on Feb 27, 2016

How much dead pace is created in the 15 g pot when using a Titan false bottom?
R Y on Dec 9, 2015

What is the diameter of the base of the pot? Curious to know if it will comfortably fit on my stove
M A on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is 15.7 inches in diameter.
Is the valve and temp. gauge ports welded?
