    These should work.
    Looking forward to using them. I started installing the ball valves and thermometer, but disappointed by the dent when I pulled everything out of the packaging. While the dent shouldn’t affect isage, it is still disappointing having items delivered that are already blemished.

    Nice Equipment, Thermometer is a little sticky
    Arrived quickly and I have been impressed with it, doing the first all grain batch with it was fun. The pots are sturdy but easy to move around and (almost) everything worked exactly as it should. Assembly wasn't too difficult and only took about 10 minutes. The only thing I noticed was that the thermometer tended to stick at a temperature and then would rise or drop 5-10 degrees so I didn't realize I wasn't holding temperature as steadily as I thought until it had risen or fallen quite a few degrees.

    Not what it is advertized as
    The add makes it sound like you would not need anything else. I did still have to get a hot liquor tank. The mash kettle has 2 problems. Cannot completely rely on the thermometer that came with the system and it does not retain the heat very long. If I could rely on the thermometer it would probably retain heat a little better because I would not have to keep opening the lid to check the temperature. All of this may not matter much if it cost less, but I paid too much money to have these problems.

    Thanks for the review. The thermometer should be an implement that you can rely on, so we will have Customer Service reach out to help with some troubleshooting.

    Nice Product
    Have just moved up to all grain brewing, and decided to take the leap and buy this set instead of going with coolers and upgrading later. Overall I'm very pleased with the product, and will probably eventually buy at least one more megapot. My only complaint would be the very weak assembly instructions provided. I guess they're assuming buyers with more experience than I have, but for me, it was a very frustrating set-up.

    Got it on a deal.
    I purchased this because I was in the market to finally move into full all-grain brews and step out of the extract and half grain brews. I purchased this set up with Northern Brewer had a special, so it was a little easier to swallow the dollar amount. I first saw the set up on Brew TV's Wil Wheaton episodes. I purchased the quick disconnect kit for this set up- I'm so glad I did much easier than it would have been. The sparse arm is fantastic; however, I do agree with some of the other comments that it would be nice to be able to attach it to the kettle. I literally tie the hose to a handle with a ponytail and the arm stays up top just fine.

    Mediocre for the price
    This system works on my gravity fed setup, but has a few issues. Number one is no thermometer port on the HLT. Seems like a cheap corner cut for an expensive kettle and forced me to rig a large thermometer set up for it about 8' off the ground. Sparge arm is adjustable, but not very sturdy. I may start using the mash tun as the HLT and a cooler for the mash to maintain temps more easily. I do not recommend this system.

    Used the system for 1st time, quality is good, changed tubing fittings to cam-locks, much easier to work with, sparge arm works well, but would be nice to be able to secure to the mash kettle, overall a good system.

    After One Year of Ownership
    The quality of these products is ridiculous. The pots are sturdy...like armor plating sturdy. Every component is well thought and placed perfectly. I wont ever have to buy anything else. How's that for return on investment? The last setup you'll ever buy.

    MegaPot 1.2 Fantastic brew kettle's
    Just finished brewing my second round of all grain brew. These Kettles are fantastic. So much easier to handle than my old mash tun and brew kettle. And the sparge arm is great. The brew kettle did leak just a little but a little twist stopped that. I thought here we go again, the ball valve setup would leak bad. But not so. I got the 10gal setup and very very happy. Great price and top notch quality. Will be brewing with these kettles for a long time.

    What capacity/size would you recommend for 5 gallon batches (due to keg size)? Is the 8 gallon pot big enough for high OG recipes?
    A N on May 27, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: I purchased the 8 gal set and have had great success with it. However, if I were to do it again I would definitely go at LEAST the 10 gal set. So far the largest grain bill I have used in my 8 gal is about 18 to 19 lbs. There are some recipes that I'd love to brew with a much higher bill than this. I'd go as big as you can afford and grow into it if I was you. Enjoy and welcome to the community ;)
    Shouldn't the hot liquor tank come with a thermometer? How best to know temp of strike/sparge water? for $630 for the 15 gal system, this seems like a bad omission?
    A L on Nov 21, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The HLT in this system does not have a thermometer. The temp of the hot liquor can be monitored by other means if need. This is less critical in a direct fire system where reaching mash out temps are reached prior to sparging and not dependent upon hot liquor/sparge water. Thank you for your feedback. I am happy to pass that along.
    It looks like this setup is intended to be a hot liquor tank and a mash tun. Correct? If yes, what would you recommend for the boiling kettle? Or should I find something else to serve as the HLT and use the kettle without the thermometer for a boil kettle?
    Brian C on Nov 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use this setup as the mash tun and boil kettle (how I believe it was meant to be used). I used my previous boil kettle (a turkey frying kettle) as my hot liquor tank. Your HLT does not need to be too big as it will usually hold 4 or fewer gallons of hot water (depending on what you are brewing, of course). Hope this helps! Happy brewing!
    The false bottom in the picture varies from the video. Is it not supposed to fit the diameter of the megapot or shoule i be using a cooler for the mash tun ?
    A shopper on Jan 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Don't worry if the false bottom doesn't cover the whole bottom of your pot. Due to the design of the Titan it will work as long as it's smaller than the pot. The only problem the design creates is you have to stir a bit more if you need to add heat to the mash but the pot does a great job keeping temperature for 60-90 minutes. Hope this helps and have fun with the new system!
    I plan on upgrading to all grain equipment after the new year. I would like the ability to do 10 gallon batches. For heavier grain bills, generating higher abv beers, I plan to only do in 5 gallon batches. With that said, would a 15 gallon set-up work for the basic grain bill sizes yielding 10 gallons of beer? I plan to use the the HLT as my boil kettle, and use my current 6 gallon boil kettle as my HLT. At least until I can upgrade the boil kettle at a much later date. I figure the 15 gallon set-up is the proper way to go for the set-up I want, but I just want some opinions on it.
    E M on Dec 9, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Sean,

    The only thing about what you're describing that I am not sure of, is I am not sure if you will have a large enough HLT for lower grav 10 gallon batches.

    For high grav batches, you'll use less sparge water, so that's not an issue in that area. Feel free to fire us off an email to brewmaster@northernbrewer.com and we can chat about it a bit more at length as well.
    Installation: i believe i fid the setup correctly but the ball value did not thread the entire length on the main body. Also this happen on the connector from the ball value to the hose line. Am i doing something wrong?
    A shopper on Dec 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Can you explain better. But from what I gather, you should put plumbers tape around the threads and it will then screw in about half way, half threads being able to be seen (should be tight), then put it into the kettle and the other end should be the same. The threads will not bottom out into the ball valve.
    Can you can use the mash tun for a boil pot duties? Thanks!
    T I on Jul 31, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: You can definitely use the mash tun for boiling. The only difference between it and a boiling pot is a false bottom and matching fitting. Take those out and replace the fitting with one that will get everything out of the pot at the end or be prepared to lean it over a little at the end. But I love my system, just wish I bought it earlier. Beats an Igloo mash tun system for me.
    What would be the easiest way to keep track of my water volume while using this system? Thanks!
    Gary L on May 18, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Each kettle has volume markings meaning you can easily identify how much water you have collected in each kettle. Then in all grain brewing, the math can be quite easy for strike water, water absorption by the grain quarts/pound of grain, and sparge water amount until you hit your target preboil volume. I hope that helps!
    Is the false bottom on the 8 and 10 gallon megapot 1.2 the same size. Thanks
    B A on May 10, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Barry,

    Thank you for your question! The false bottom for both the 8 and 10 gal. MegaPot 1.2 are indeed the same size, 11.5".

    Been brewing extract for a while and am looking to make the jump to all grain this year. I have a 7 gla kettle right now and a propane burner. Will I need to buy anything else with this kit?
    Garrett R. Mier on May 2, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Since all kettles are direct fired, having another propane burner or two would be useful -otherwise you have to pick up and move the pots from burner to burner which is not ideal. Pot handles are not really designed to move when full and heavy but it is possible. A slotted spoon, or mash paddle, would also be helpful. Cheers!
    What are the dimensions of the shipping package of the 15 gallon system?
    J O on Apr 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: 40" x 40" x 40", and it weighs 64 lbs.
    How high up is the thermometer on the 15 gal model in terms of gallons?
    C A on Apr 10, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The center of the hole in the pot is about 5 inches from the bottom
    Are Isoflow hose barbs included in this package?
    Art A on Nov 29, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Hello Art

    The all grain kit does indeed come with the iso-flow hose barb. Have a great day!
    what is the size and weight of the package?
    A shopper on May 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This will vary depending on the kettle size selected. It's available in an 8, 10, 15, 20, or 30 gallon kettle size, so the weight and box sizes will be greater for the larger set-ups. Each of these set-ups would be a multiple-box shipment. Each kettle will be in it's own box, and the other items in a third box.
    Would NB switch the 11 in. false bottom for the smaller 9 in. version if requested? I plan to travel soon and will be severely limited in equipment size. I would be getting the 8 gallon size obviously and hauling one of them around as a boiling pot while I'm gone.
    D O on Aug 11, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: We can't really do substitutes in a kit when getting them shipped. The false bottom fits right in the pot so not sure how that would help with the footprint, should be determined by the kettle either way, just store inside the pot. Hope that helps!
    Do you have this set up also available with/for electric brewing?
    H A on Jun 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Hans,

    At this time we do not have an electric brewing set up. Sorry for any inconvenience.
    Where does each specific piece of tubing go?
    R H on Apr 5, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The high temp tubing is for inside of the kettle and for drawing off of the mash tun. The silicone tubing is for transferring from the hot liquor tank and sparging.
    Shouldn't the false bottom in my 8gal mega pot have came with at least a grommet that allows me to feeding tubing thru instead of just a hole?
    B I on Mar 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Your false bottom should have had a two piece threaded fitting (one half goes on the underside, the other part on the overside. The top part would have had a barbed fitting that would connect to the output ball-valve.
    What is the exact volume of the vessels? I can't seem to find a solid answer on whether the capacity option is for kettle size or brewing system.
    K H on Feb 11, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The option is for the kettle size. So, if you select the 10 gallon option, you will receive 2x 10 gallon kettles.
    I am considering the MegaPot 1.2 Pro All-Grain Brewing System with a pump. What fittings will I need to run a recirculation system with the pump and this series of pots?
    J R on Oct 9, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: I have not added a pump yet, Christmas is coming and family is always looking for gift ideas. Sorry I couldn't answer your question. I will be trying to figure out those connections myself.
    i am considering buying the COG and a pro brewer set-up. i already have a 15gal MP 1.2 with titan FB. can the COG support 15gal kettles ? if so, which probrewer size comes with 15 gal kettles ? is it the 10 gallon system, or the 20 ? thanks. also, what happended to the previous review that was posted about the guy with broken needle valve, is he a satisfied customer now ?
    Christopher O on Sep 15, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The COG maxes out at a 15 gallon kettle size

    and that is the 15 gallon system....the size refers to the kettle size. I'm not sure what review you are referring to

    we do our best to ensure satiafaction for every customer.
