A Brew Kettle of Epic Proportions!

The 10-gallon Tall Boy® kettle is a boil kettle that will last you a lifetime. This kettle will grow with you and can easily integrate into the future All-Grain system of your dreams.

Ideal for: 5 or 6 gallon batches, but with plenty of space for Brew-In-A-Bag methods as well.

This is no repurposed stock pot. The Tall Boy® is made specifically for homebrewers. Brew scientists have determined that the ideal height to diameter ratio for a brew kettle should be 1.2:1 in order to optimize boil performance. The Tall Boy reduces evaporative losses, and less evaporative cooling means a more vigorous boil. A vigorous boil means more volatilization of off flavors, and better hop utilization. All of that means better beer. Add to that it’s 4mm thick tri-clad bottom, designed to stop bullets and prevent scorching, and you’ve got a serious brewer’s tool. The Tall Boy logo is laser etched into the surface as a subtle indication to the world that you take brewing seriously.

  • Height: 16.75" without Lid; 18.75" with Lid
  • Width: 15" at Top of Kettle; 14.5" at Bottom of Kettle; 18.5" Handle to Handle
  • Inner Diameter: 13.75"

Brew Pot
I ordered this pot because I wanted to retire the aluminum turkey fryer pot I used when I did extract brewing. I didn't need a valve or temp gauge in the pot, so I bought a bare bones kettle. You get what you pay for. The top of the pot is just a sharp metal flange instead of a rolled edge like the more expensive pots. The finish is a course sanded finish instead of polished metal. If you can live with these 2 issues its an affordable option to the crazy expensive brew kettles out there.

what a pot!
This is really high quality. The only thing I wish it had was graduated marks for volume inside the kettle. Will be adding a ball valve and thermometer to it soon.

Get it. Get it now.
3 brews in and it’s holding up great. I have this plus the Darkstar burner. I was able to move up to all-grain BIAB. I do wish I went with the 15 gallon kettle but for my current space limitations this is perfect.

Best Value Out There
Wish I would have started with this kettle. I was always fighting with grain bills that were over 14 lbs with my old kettle. Quality could be better, but as I said for the price you can't go wrong.

Just what I needed an affordable quality kettle.
I am happy I purchased this kettle. It has made (5-7 Gal.) boils much easier. The bottom is thick and transfer heat nicely with my propane burner set up. Thank you tall boy for providing an affordable kettle that a working man can afford. Benjamin Franklin would be proud.

Great kettle for the money.
Ive used this for about two years now and have no complaints. I drilled mine and added a ball valve. Really good value.

Tall Boy 10 gallon makes all grain brewing fun..
With the 1 exception of pouring the wurt into the fermenter the Tall Boy works great.
The 10 gal works great with my Dark Star 2.0 burner.
My 1st all grain Caribou Slobber was easily accommodated by the Tall Boy.

Great Brewhouse
This is a great brewpot for 5 gallon batches. It will boil 7.5 gallons easily on an electric stove with a canning element. The canning element is important. On a propane burner I'm sure it would do even better. Solid conductive base...

Arrived Dented
When the package arrived the box didn't show any damage. I opened it up and looked it over and found a substantial dent where the side walls met the bottom. It won't affect how the it performs and I need to use it this weekend so I can't claim damage and have it replaced. Just disappointed that the appearance isn't perfect.

Hi all, could someone please verify the diameter of this kettle? I have had mine for over a year now and have always been off on my brewing numbers using this pot. I entered the dimensions of 13.3" diameter into Beersmith's equipment tool and always had been off on efficiency's. Before my last brew 2 weeks ago I physically measured the bottom of my kettle and it was 14" diameter! This changed the volumes of water I was measuring going into the kettle for a BIAB brew quite a bit. After I edited my diameter settings and calculated the correct volume of water to start with I was spot on with my numbers.

If someone else could physically verify the diameter and post them here, it might help people going forward with their full volume mashes.

More of a general question, but would this size (10 gal) be suitable for 5 gal BIAB batches with high gravity/big grain bills?
T G on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I think it would. It would depend on how high of gravity. On my system with ~0.5gal of "dead space" I can get a 15# grain bill in there (just barely) that gets up to ~1.080 gravity. I usually dont go for the high gravity stuff though. If you routinely do barleywines or Imperial IPAs then you might want to bump up to the 15gal. You could always drop the batch size to a 4 or 4.5 gal and increase your top end gravity wise.
Will the 10 gallon blichmann false bottom work in this pot ?
A shopper on Feb 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, the Blichmann False Bottoms are designed for their kettles, and they rest on a "lip" on the edge of the base of the kettle. The same false bottom would not work in a Megapot or TallBoy kettle. The domed Titan False Bottoms are really the best way to go for our drilled kettles. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Does it have volume marks inside?
Denis B on Feb 6, 2016

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! The Tall Boy kettles do not have volume marks on the inside. I hope that this helps, let me know if you have any further questions!
Any suggestions on putting volume marks inside?
M C on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We're not aware of any good way for a consumer to add the markings on to the kettle, really. If they were scratched in, it could cause it to corrode at those spots. A person could take a long-handled spoon and make marks on it that correspond to the gallon levels in the kettle, and stick the spoon in to check the level in the liquid measure, but apart from that, we don't know of a good method. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
One of the reviewers reports that you can't add any weldless fittings. Is that true? I'd like to add a valve and heat element to mine.
G L on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All you have to do it drill a 7/8" hole to install a weldless fitting. I bought the EZ Clean Kettle Valve Kit with Barb, drilled the hole with a hand drill and carbide tipped hole-cutter, works perfectly.
What are the exact external dimensions? I want to know if it will fit in my ice chest that I use to hold mash temperatures.
External Diameter? Height?
Handle width and extent?
B U on Jul 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kettle is 13.3 inches in diameter, and 16 inches tall. The handles stick out about 2.5 inches on each side. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Is this kettle stainless steel or Aluminum?
C A on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is a stainless-steel kettle, with a 3-layer base of stainless steel/aluminum/stainless steel. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Is this pot induction cooktop compatible?
J O on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The tall boy and megapots are both induction capable. Cheers!
What is the diameter of the bottom of the pot? I know many of times the width measurement includes the rim or even sometimes the handles. I need a pot with no more than 10 3/4" diameter to fit within the ring of my bayou classic cooker.
Rick B on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The diameter of the bottom-most surface of the outside of the pot (the part that would touch a table if placed on one) is 13?. The sides of the kettle extend an additional 1/2? on either side, giving a total diameter of 14? when measuring from the outside of the pot on either side. This doesn?t include the rim at the top or the handles.
Can this be used as a mash tun for 5 gallon batches?
H P on Jan 2, 2016

Sure, but you would probably want to drill a hole in it and add a ball valve. Otherwise it would be tricky!


Will this work on induction?
A K on Nov 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The Tall Boy kettles are induction ready
Is there a false bottom that fits the 10 gal. Tall Boy?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 11.5" Titan false bottom will work great with the Tallboy kettle.
Can the Tall Boy 10 gallon pot be used with the Anvil High Performance Burner without causing damage to the pot?
