The MegaPot 1.2™ is a stainless steel masterpiece available in 8,10, 15, 20 and 30 gallon capacities. Every detail has been thought through to enhance the homebrewing experience.
Crafted of stainless steel for ease of cleaning.
Stay cool silicone hanles 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.
Now standard on all new MegaPot 1.2™ brew kettles with ball valves, the IsoFlow™ bulkhead will retrofit to previous drilled versions of the MegaPot 1.2™ or any other kettle with a 7/8" hole. Our revolutionary patent-pending IsoFlow™ bulkhead is purpose-built for homebrewing. With snap-in accessories, you can easily pop in a diptube for transferring every last ounce of wort, or a hose barb (not included) to hook up your false bottom.
And last of all, the MegaPot 1.2™ logo is stamped on every kettle. When you have the best, show it off!

4.7 / 5.017 ReviewsdifferanceI have three Mega pots, two 15 gal and one 10 gal. On the ten gal pot the emblem is stamped and the gal marks on the inside of the kettle are etched very well. The 15 gal kettles the emblem is etched on and the gal marks are not as well etched as the ten gal kettle.
There is a difference in the gal marks from the ten gal kettle to the 15 gal kettle's. With the 15 gal kettle filled up to the five gal mark, then transferred to the ten gal kettle the water level only comes up to four and a half gal mark in the ten gal kettle.
Because of this I was having poor efficiency in my brew house. If you get these kettles be sure to check the volume marks for accuracy.
Over all the kettles are nice, the weld less spigot's seems to be a little wiggly once installed. I was a bit concerned about this at first, but after 20 plus brew sessions they have held up. I did experience some leaking from the thermometer area and had to redo it several times before the leaking stopped.
I will eventually up grade these kettle that has welded port's. There are better kettles out there for close to the same cost as these.January 28, 2017Good to FairBest thing about this pot is the bottom. Appears to be designed to make scorching a batch near impossible although I have not yet used it enough to know for sure. Little disappointed in the quality of the metal because the boil line is stained after just one batch. Not a big deal, but isn't it called "stainless" steel? I have an old 4 gallon kettle I've used for years. It takes just a few wipes to bring back the full SS shine.January 21, 2016Good upgrade.Love this pot. Great upgrade. Took me a few tries to get it together with no leaks.December 21, 2015MegaPot = MegaAwesomeI've been using the MegaPot for about 6 months and really enjoy it. The index lines are one of those "duh" add-ons that I wish they had thought of 2 pots purchases ago. They need to include instructions to install the thermometer (leak-free - these can be found at Northern Brewer's site), and maybe offer and upgrade option for the thermometer._x000D__x000D_One other improvement might be to offer a dip tube that fits the Blichmann hop blocker.June 4, 2015Worth the $ to upgrade from economy kettleThough pricey, this kettle was worth the money to upgrade from my economy kettle. The handles on the pot and lid stay cool and are well secured. The laser-etched markings inside are definitely handy and seem accurate. I've dropped this kettle onto a concrete floor from counter height and there was no damage (to the pot) so it is definitely sturdy. The thermometer is a must and works very well for steeping. The boil is nice and even and I have not had any scorching issues. Plenty of head space for a vigorous 6 gallon boil. I recommend a few feet of 1/2" ID silicone tubing for transfer, as the kettle is predictably heavy when filled. Works well with at 12" boil screen, but you lose a little less than a gallon in transfer because of the height of the port. The only minor drawbacks are that the ball valve handle can get pretty hot if your burner does not have a heat shield and it may take you a few times to figure out how to assemble/attach the ball valve and thermometer, as they have no instructions (don't forget to sanitize a couple of wrenches!).June 5, 2015Solid EquipmentThis is a very well made pot with great options. The only issue I had with it was putting together the ball valve, as the instructions did not seem descriptive enough to do it. There are a couple of videos online that helped with the assembly. I am a complete beginner, so if I have have to do it again, I'm sure I won't have a problem.January 21, 2016Best Kettle I've usedI wanted to move up to a nicer kettle for brewing. This one fit the bill 100% and didn't break the bank. I got the undrilled version and also use it for other cooking and canning.October 7, 2015Awesome Kettle!I'm currently an extract brewer and needed something for Christmas that worked, so I got this in a HUGE upgrade. Someday I'll be able to use it for all-grain batches.
Make sure to attach the thermometer correctly and use Teflon tape. I didn't receive instructions with my kettle, but the folks at Midwest took my call and pointed me in the right direction. Once that was set up, this bad boy is leak free! Cheers!November 29, 2016Purchased
1 year agomega pot 1.2 10galI purchased a single 10gal mega pot with temp and ball valve during their "take 20% off any single item sale." After my first brew session, I immediately bought a second one to serve as my boil kettle for my two tier brew stand. They are so much lighter and easier to manuever than my keggle. Cleaning is a breeze. I love the rubber coated handles and volume markings. I read other reviews about how they are prone to leaking. No leaks here, with proper plumbers tape application._x000D_Don't get me wrong, I love both kettles, the only drawback is the positioning of the ball valve. It leaves about a gallon of dead space. This isn't a big deal on my HLT, only on my boil kettle. _x000D_Overall, I would buy again. But I don't believe I will ever need too...June 5, 2015Gits ur done!Very good pot! Built well and handles stay cool. Worth it to get a good pot like this for all grain brewing. My burner creates a lot of carbon blackness on the bottom, but that's just part of the deal I think. I recommend it!!June 5, 2015

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 5 answersIs there a recommended hose to connect to the ball valve?BEST ANSWER: If you add the tube after you have cooled the wort, then any beverage tubing with the right diameter will work fine. No need for high temperature tubing.Do mega pots have a warranty?BEST ANSWER: We do have one year warranty on them.What size tubing fits on to the opening on this pot? Is anymore hardware required to attach tubing or can the tube be put directly on pot as is?BEST ANSWER: The attachments that come for the spout are 1/2'' in diameter. And you may need a small adjustable wrench for the nut on the inside but that's about it. You are going to have to play around with it at first to get a perfect seal, but it won't take too long.What size/model of the Blichmann Boilermaker false bottom will fit best with the 10 GAL. MEGAPOT 1.2™? I know they have a 10 gallon model but I don't know if the 10 gallon Blichmann Boilermaker kettle is the same dimensions as the 10 gallon MEGAPOT 1.2 and haven't been able to find those dimensions. Thanks.BEST ANSWER: The Boilermaker false bottoms will not fit in the Megapots. They only work in Boilermaker kettles.
