Product details

The MegaPot 1.2™ brew kettle is not only a workhorse, but a well thought-out and praise-worthy brewday essential trusted by countless homebrewers. No details were missed on this stainless steel kettle customizable to suit your exact needs.

The 8-gallon MegaPot 1.2™ is ideal for performing a full wort boil on any 5 gallon batch. A full boil helps to improve hop utilization and avoid caramelizing the malt extract. This is a great upgrade for any extract brewer, but will work as a boil kettle for 5 gallon All-Grain batches as well. While it can work as an All-Grain mash tun using the Universal False Bottom, the smaller size will limit your grain bill to lower gravity beers.

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!

Love this kettle. Makes a 5 gallon full boil super easy with plenty of headroom. Extra thick bottom is a plus.

8 Gallon MegaPot 1.2 Brew Kettle

I rarely write reviews because what doesn't work for me others may have a completely different experience. My MegaPot sure has made it easily transferring the wort into the carboy's. This has been one of my smartest buys.

New brew kettle

I’ve now made two batches using this kettle and also the copper wort chiller I purchased at the same time. The larger size of this kettle made brewing a 5gal batch very easy. Good product.

Megapot 1.2

Very Pleased with Megapot 1.2. The only issue is I ordered the Pot with the temperature gauge, and I needed to add a second washer to enable the seal to be tight for the gauge. An easy add from the local hardware store. It has worked flawlessly through the two brewss
