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!

3.0 / 5.01 ReviewIt's OKGood quality pot, handles are well insulated and well constructed.
Much room for improvement.
1. the false bottom connects to the valve with a tube. Tubes are flexible, if to provide too much agitation the bottom will raise up and grains will get under it defeating the purpose. You also have to be super careful not to stir the tube off the false bottom. Not really good
2. the valve, inside thread is not a standard size you can easily purchase adapters for and the gaskets for the valve can squish and leak if you tighten it enough so the valve is secure. Also not fantastic.
3. Didn't ship with the correct adapter for the valve to false bottom. Resulting in almost 2 week delay in being able to use it.January 30, 2018Purchased
1 month agoResponse from Midwest SuppliesThanks for the review. And thanks for the feedback on the Megapot system. We use the feedback to help us make changes and better design our products. I use the same system and find that mashing requires a little care to keep that screen from moving up down/side to side. I find being mindful of where the tubing is helps with issues during mashing in. If this becomes too much of an issue give us a call and we can share some other techniques that might help. Also sorry about that isoflow barbed fitting not being included. We have found with the many ways of outfitting a kettle not everyone wants the same connector system. Any other issues feel free to reach out.January 31, 2018Tom BStaff
