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!

4.2 / 5.010 ReviewsLow quality steelPut water in to test the seals. Left it in for two days not thinking anything of leaving tap water in a stainless steel container. It now has two corrosion spots where the steel is discolored and had started to develop small holes. My six year old pot this was supposed to replace doesn't look this bad. I don't think this one is going to last considering what it looks like prior to use and will look elsewhere for something actually durable since it is apparently going to rust through with use.December 22, 2015Out of the box has me concernedHopefully this will grab some attention! First thing I noticed was a gouge out of the box...ok I'm sure it will be fine. As I get to opening it all appears to be well. I pull the lid, looks great, get the ball lock, seems in good order and nicely packaged, the same can be said about the thermometer. But as I pull the kettle and set it in the light I notice the light shooting down a straight line on the pot...a seam? No,a very noticeable a defined crease like a 300 lb man gave this a bear hug before packing.it runs the length from top to bottom. Then as I look on the inside there is a noticeable deformity or burr protruding into the interior of the kettle. Now I'm being particular but on the bottom of the kettle on the 4mm clad bottom there is little shards of steel from casting that were never even sanded down.everything seems in good repair, minus the damage, and maybe after I brew my first batch my opinion would change...time shall tell.April 11, 2017Purchased

We will be contacting you soon to discuss your kettle and what we can do to eliminate those concerns.April 13, 2017Todd J StaffMegapotBrewed a couple of days after getting my 15 gal pot. Brewed a Russian Imperial stout BIAG and had plenty of room for my mash. Held temp within a couple of degrees during the 60 minute mash!! I like the gallon markers etched on the inside, very helpful.November 25, 2016Purchased
1 year agoGreat brew potI am very pleased with the new pot. No problems at all on the first brew day. There was a sizable dent near the bottom when I took it out of the box, but that was smoothed over by a gift card from customer service.Brewing up 10 gallons of a bourbon stout. Great way to break in the new pot.November 14, 2017Purchased

4 weeks agoGreat for stepping up your production, especially with biabThis pot allowed me to up my game to making ten gallon batches of most beers and easily handle the extra grains for five gallon batches of high gravity beers like barley wines and imperial stouts, which I struggled with with my old 8 gallon pots. Absolutely love it!April 12, 2018Purchased
5 months agoLove thy kettle!Upgrade from my 10 gallon mega. Plenty of room I love it! The lip of the kettle is not curved like the 10 and it seems thinner. It definitely gets the job done and looks good doing it. No problems here.Added Apr 26, 2018April 26, 2018Purchased
4 months agoGreat size for growingSelected size as I wanted to be able to easily do either 5 or 10 gallon batches. Plenty of room for my standard batch finished size of 5.5 gallons. Allows me to double recipes that I repeat and want larger volume. Not a thin walled pot, good strong quality, heats well, perfect.January 30, 2018Purchased

Is this purchase separately? or included?BEST ANSWER: No, it is not included, unless purchased as a combo. It works great though, I'd recommend it.
