Raise Your Game II - 8 Gal. Brew Kettle & Burner Kit
You've proven yourself as a brewing prodigy. It's time to step up your game and build out your brewhouse.
This kit will take your brewing to the next level. Now available in two options, it includes your choice of Dark Star propane burner and an 8 Gallon Megapot 1.2™ brew kettle. This kettle holds enough to allow you to do a full volume boil on a 5 gallon batch, and the Dark Star® packs the power - over 65,000 BTUs - to get your boil rolling in under 20 minutes.
Brew like the big kids and ditch the dilution! Full volume boils mean you'll be getting better hop utilization, less wort darkening, and less chance of scorching your precious wort which ultimately means better beer in the glass.
Raise your game and don't just make better beer, make more of it. Skyrocket quality and efficiency and start making the most of your brew day.

All in all, it was very easy to put together the pot and burner. I tested it out that night with a new recipe. I decided instead of doing a partial boil and then diluting to do a full 5-gal boil. The burner on its lowest setting was still able to heat 5 gals of water to 170 before 20 minutes (the time to steep the grains on this recipe). Within about another 10 minutes, it was at a full boil. I was amazed. The valve and thermometer built into the pot is an excellent addition. Overall, the perfect first upgrade to the starter kit I bought.
Kettle and burner are first rate. Completely happy with cost and quality!
really really high quality and easy to use burner and brew kettle.
Excellent product, highly recommend!
The kettle is great.
The burner took longer to heat than I expected and was hard to control the temp
