      I purchased this for my husband whose new hobby is home brewing beer. This Kettle is excellent quality- thick stainless steel. The only issue was that the thermometer and spigot had to be inserted. I would recommend, after installing the thermometer and spigot, test for leaks with water in the pot. We started to brew only to have to empty the pot and reseal the spigot.

    • OK for the price, not all the pieces work
      Verified Purchase

      The pot is of decent construction. The metal is thinner than some of the competition out there, but this pot is also often sold much cheaper and includes more options. My pot arrived nicely double boxed. It had one small dent that did not alter the function in any way that did not bother me. But the false bottom does not fit the pot. The handles extend too far past the edge of the false bottom preventing it from sitting level in the pot. It will work if you remove the handles. It appears to be a bayou classic mfr problem as they attempted to send me a replacement false bottom and it suffered from the same problem. Other items to note that others mention. Yes everything is covered in a thick machining oil that needs to be removed. I cleaned this pot with oxyclean and a scrubbing pad and had no problem removing the grease. The handles are welded on, but it they did cut a grove into the handles so that the weld would penetrate better. So the handles may not be as strong as riveted handles, but they do have tried to make the weld strong. The thermometer, screen, valve are nice. The pot bend when opening and closing the valve. I would consider buying this again without the false bottom and a lower price. At the end of the day the quality is lower than much of the competition...but the price is also much lower. If you buy this pot expect to throw out the false bottom, or modify the handles or replace them with fishing line. I attempted to communicate with Bayou Classic and they were unresponsive. Overstock customer support was great through. It took about a week to resolve my issues, but they kept in contact. I ended up keeping the pot and I will eventually attempt to modify the handles of the false bottom or remove them.

    • Great brew kettle for the money!
      Verified Purchase

      I have been upgrading my equipment since getting into home brewing. While I've done all grain, I am focusing on extract brewing. This pot allows me to keep everything in one place and eliminates all lifting or moving of the wort. Plus, the thermometer allows me to keep an eye on things easily. After dropping in the wort chiller and cooling, I can add the required water and use the spigot to drain to a fermenter. Simple as can be. The pot is much heavier than my prior one and has a solid, 5mm thick aluminum plate which helps distribute heat evenly. Very well made!

    • Maple syrup pot

      I use this to finish maple syrup indoors after boiling most of the water off outside. Its deep enough that it doesn't boil over quickly and the spout allows one to fill bottles easily (I added a downward facing spout from the local hardware store. Also good for steaming corn and seafood (lobster,clams, mussels).

      Verified Purchase

      Excellent quality and a great package deal-all components are high quality . 8 gal is perfect size for extract and smaller all grain batch brewing-you need the 10 gallon size for high gravity all grain If grain bill is more than 10 pounds. Wish I would have bought the 10 gallon size .

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I am considering this pot for making clarified butter which has a residue left after cooking. So the question is how easy it is to clean the pot and also the spigot? Your comments and suggestions will be useful. Thanks."

      • A:

        After using this pot to make butter you can use hot soapy water and a scrub pad to clean the inside of the pot. As far as the spigot you can let it soak in some hot soapy water and then use a bottle brush to clean it out.

    • Q:

      "What is the metal thickness of the sidewalls? What is the metal thickness of the bottom? Is it tri-clad (stainless steel sandwiching aluminum)?"

    • Q:

      "I've read online some complaints about grease or bad stuff in the spigot. What is a good way to clean it and make sure it doesn't infect my beer?"

      • A:

        I assembled it the best I could. The grease smell is really bad.

      • A:

        I just soaked the valve in hot soapy water to start, and then I filled the kettle up twice with hot soapy water and cracked the valve open about half way and let it run through the valve. This seems to have cleaned it out just fine.

      "Just got my brewpot. The instructions sheet to install the spigot is a bunch if pictures that don't tell me much. Are there instructions to install it?"

    • Q:

      "Why is this product not intended to be used with induction heating? It is made from stainless steel -- induction should work if a magnet attaches firmly to the base."

      • A:

        Hello answerplease, According to the manufacturer, the combination of metals in the brew kettle's bottom is not conducive for use on an induction cooktop. You might want to consider purchasing an induction disc, which would sit between the cooktop and the pan so that you can use it.
