Try one for yourself and see what keeps the positive reviews coming!
Ideal for: boiling no more than 5-6 gallons of wort. Smaller partial mash or Brew-In-A-Bag systems.
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.
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!

Overall great kettle. My only issue is with the thickness of the metal of the kettle. When opening and closing the ball valve, you need to be careful not to bend the kettle itself. Two hands are required to operate the ball valve and not bend the kettle.
Great quality and hadn't let me down. Ready to clean as well.
it's a welcome addition to the brew day but I wish the o-rings on the spigot weren't so loose and floppy.
