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 homebrew kettle is a great upgrade for any extract brewer, but will work for 5 gallon All-Grain boils 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.

Ideal for: boiling no more than 5-6 gallons of wort. Smaller partial mash or Brew-In-A-Bag systems.

MegaPot 1.2™ is a stainless steel masterpiece, not just another stainless steel stock pot. Every detail has been thought through to enhance the homebrewing experience. The heart of the kettle is a 4mm thick Tri-Clad bottom- made specifically for even heat distribution. Graduated volume markings inside the kettle allow for easy volume measurements during the boil. The 1.2 proportion of MegaPot has been scientifically designed to promote a vigorous boil and reduce off-flavors making it the ultimate home brew kettle.


You may also need: The 11.5" Universal False Bottom

Also available with weldless ball-valve and thermometer.

Very heavy duty
I purchased this pot after a review I read for a chilli pot. Everything was to my liking from the time I first seen the pot to starting the simmering of my chili. The pot did burn on the bottom which totally amazed me cause of the way it was built. Not nearly as bad as the aluminum one I had before so it’s still a keeper, I just need to keep stirring more. Still very happy!

Perfect For Partial Mash
I have been brewing for several years and have been using Northern Brewer kettles for a while now. They are great quality brew kettles. I recently upgraded to the MegaPot 1.2 as these kettles are specifically designed for home brewing.

May Be Returning
I received my Megapot yesterday and am debating whether I should return it. I'm no metallurgist, but I question the quality of the construction. There are more indicators of it being made in a machine shop than a quality cookware shop. Photos show drill drift, burrs, stamping, and what appears to be a seam imperfection at the bottom.

The pot certainly is heavy duty and may very well function perfectly. The many obvious blemishes (flaws?) in construction make me nervous.

MegaPot 1.2 8 Gal. Kettle review
Kettle works great - nice even boil and the gallon markings on the inside of the kettle are very helpful for all grain brewing
July 13, 2016
Great Pot
Big step up from my old pot. Thick stainless steel, love the rubber grips on the handles and the triply bottom. Only regret is that I did not get a bigger one.

Second one is ok
The first one I rec'd showed signs of blue heat marks after a test boil. But NB replaced it and I did a test boil over the weekend and I'm good to go......time to brew!

Is this kettle capable of induction brewing? And which of your kettles are?
S P on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The megapot and tall boy kettles are induction capable. The edelmetal kettle should be as well. Blichmann kettles are not induction capable.
Is this too big of a kettle for a 2.5 gallon batch? I plan on moving to 5 gal in the future but currently my fermenter only holds 3 gal max
Matthew M on Mar 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it’ll be okay, I boil at 2.5 in this and then top up to 5. My thermometer doesn’t reach so I rigged up a zip tie off of a handle for it to extend and hang my thermometer off of that and works fine. You’ll have plenty of space when you move up to five 5 gallon brews.
I have about 17.5" of clearance under my microwave. What are the measurements on this kettle vs the 5 gal kettle also sold on the site?
D E on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 8 Gallon Megapot is 15.4 inches tall, the 5 gallon kettle is 12.5 inches tall. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Best I can tell the primary differences between this and the tall boy 8 gal is this has the graduated markings and the rubber handles. Is there anything else I am missing? Is this worth the extra $30, especially seeing how you can pair the tall boy with the deal star for the package discount.
Sean H on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The key feature that separates the Megapot from the TallBoy is that the Megapot has the option to come with a ball valve and thermometer. Depending on your batch volume, a valve may or may not be necessary or convenient. Otherwise they share many similarities.
What are the kettle dimensions? Need for BIAB sack design
