DetailsThe 10-gallon MegaPot 1.2™ 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.

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!
Diameter by Height: 14.1" x 16.3"

1 month agoGreat Pot for The Next StepT started brewing with a smaller pot, and now 5 years later I bought this and I am so glad I did. It gives me so many options that as a newbie I didn't have, and is helping me move into new brewing areas!September 24, 2018Purchased
7 months agoI like the kettle and it will work well for me. I do not line the O ring connections. I experienced a leaky O ring after transferingvwart from the all grain kit into the kettle. Had to stop, get my old kettle out and transfer to it until I re sealed new kettle. I hate having problems like that while brewingApril 29, 2018Purchased
6 months agoWell-built pot. Love the silicone handles and volume graduations on the inside. Great for homebrewing.April 3, 2018Purchased
7 months ago10 Gal. Megapot 1.2 Excellent product!The 10 gal. Megapot 1.2 is a better value than the Blichmann Boilermaker. The etched interior gallon markings are easy to read, and of course require no special cleaning, which is a definite plus over the Blichmann sight tube. Also, the ball valve and thermometer are simpler to install as well as clean. The cool silicon handles are a plus and I like the fact that they are riveted to the sides of the pot. Overall, this product is excellent, if a bit pricey, and a significant upgrade over the Boilermaker. I highly recommend it to the serious homebrewer.February 6, 2018Purchased
9 months ago10 gal brew pot is excellent quality and appearance! Will recommend this to all my fellow brewers!This 10 gal brew pot was a gift to my son who is an avid brewer! The pot is excellent quality and nice in appearance!! Weâ??re waiting for the 1st batch to be complete but I know itâ??ll be excellent! Thank you to Midwest Supplies! You are always very knowledgeable and professional regarding all of your products!! Will be ordering more supplies soon!December 13, 2017Purchased
11 months agoExcellent purchasePot is very well constructed and easy to assemble if you get the valve and gage. Going to a 10 gallon pot made brewing a 5 gallon batch so much easier with not having to worry about boil overs. Highly recommendedDecember 4, 2017Purchased
11 months agodifferanceI 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, 2017Awesome 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

- Customer Q&A
Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 10 answersIs a lid included?BEST ANSWER: Yes, the lid is included although I would caution you to brew your wert with a lid on because of boilovers. You are definitely going to need to standby the whole time and watch over it. But yes, it comes with a lid.Is 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.Induction capable?BEST ANSWER: Yes, the MegaPot 1.2 is induction capable.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.How is false bottom used?
