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!

Megapot 1.2 8 Gallon

Looks good, I have performed some water testing but no use yet. Front holes are drilled slightly off-center for valve and thermometer, and if the pot is full to the top one of the handles has a small leak. Neither seems to be a big deal. Sturdy, heats well.

Almost Great Pot

I have two of these, one for heating the mash water, and the other as a mash tun. Installing the valves and thermometer was fairly easy. One suggestion: The thermometer is mounted above the drain valve. In this position, the thermalwell is set too high. It was barely covered by my mash. I needed to add about a gallon move water to submerge the thermowell completely. I would much rather have the temperature of the thick part of the mash. This could be accomplished by putting the hole for the thermalwell in another position NOT just above the valve.
