The 8-gallon MegaPot 1.2™ is a perfect upgrade for the extract brewer who wants the benefit of a full wort boil. Improve hop utilization and avoid caramelizing the malt extract.
Ideal for: boiling 5 to 6 gallons of wort.

You may also need: 11.5" Fermenter's Favorites™ Titan™ Universal False Bottom

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!

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: 12.6" x 15.4"

I love this pot. I upgraded from a cheap 5 gallon pot. I have used it once and it boiled the wort faster than the other one I had and cleaned up with ease.
It was easy to assemble and came well packed so no problems with shipping.
Well worth the money.

This is a great brewing pot
It heated up really fast on the stove. The thermometer is accurate and the ball valve is super handy. I would totally recommend it.

Great product!
I recently purchased this item and I couldn’t be happier; very well made and easy to clean. Wide base construction allows it to fit under a hood on a kitchen stove. Will handle just about any malt extract kit you throw at it.

Perfet size for 5 gallons brewing.
This pot seems to be just the right size for producing 5 gallons. I have came close to boiling over but the extra room help me recover before. I just finished my second run and this pot is great.

What are internal dimensions of the pot? Diameter? Depth?
Andrew W on Jan 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Diameter 12.5", depth 15" internally
Where the valve goes into the pot is a male threaded connection. What do I need to connect my false bottom to this?
Michael D on Nov 24, 2017
Currently I am using the kitchen stove for boiling my wort. I am limited by the distance from stove top to the range hood. What is the height of the 8 gal with the lid on?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The kettle by itself is 15 3/8 inches tall. With the lid it is roughly 18.5 inches.
how much does the pot weigh?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do not have a way to weigh mine, but guess 5 to 8 pounds; which is easy to move the challenge is when you have 5 gallons of wort in the pot and have to move that.
Can I connect a tube right to the valve on this pot? If so what size? If not what other hardware do I need?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you would be better off with 3/8 inch silicone. It supports temps up to 500 degrees and is less likely to soften, flop and shoot off if your wort is too hot. I had this happen recently, even with a clamp on the hose it shot off and scalded the back of my hand as I was emptying my pot into a bucket to cool. Spend the extra money and buy a three to five foot section of silicone hose. It won't cause off flavors either.
What grade of stainless steel do you use and what is the thickness of the stainless steel?
P E on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The true grades of steel for these are:

201 SS for the side walls

410 SS for the bottom for use with induction burners
What type of fitting do I need to connect a tube to the ball valve?
1/2" NPT to 3/8" barb or 1/2" MPT to 1/2" barb or other?
J J on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Either one, depending on the hose size that you want to have running from the kettle. The ball-valve threads are 1/2" NPT, so whichever size hose you want to run, select that for the barb size. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
I plan on using induction heating for the boil I have no other oprions, is the triclad bottom all stainless? It must be magnetic, any information would be helpful.
R L on May 9, 2016

Thank you for your question! Our Megapots are indeed induction ready.

Perhaps this is a dumb question--perhaps I should know the answer already--but do you leave the ball valve and thermometer installed, or do you remove them after each brew?
Bryan Z on Apr 23, 2016

You do not need to remove the ball valve and thermometer after each brew. Just clean the kettle with those components in place. I hope that this helps!
Is this brew pot induction capable?
A A on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is stainless steel. So yes it will work. But that is a lot of weight on a stovetop.
What size hose do I need for these pots?
S T on Dec 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It come with a 1/2" barb so any 1/2" ID tubing will work.
