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!

An excellent pot for 5 gal batch. No matter if this is your first grain batch or just replacing an old pot, this is the one you can count on. Price and fast shipping is spot on as always from Midwest Supplies.
I made the switch from partial extract to full batch brewing, and really like this brew kettle. It is well built, sturdy and an all around quality pot in my opinion. I got mine with the ball valve spigot and dip tube, and my only complaint is the locking "tab" for lack of a better word, on the ball valve handle. I'd like to be able to just move the handle to the open position without having to release this little locking device first. I would definitely recommend this product
Works great, no leaks and no constant need to check temp.
Bought this to replace plastic containers which were not Kombucha friendly. This is easy to setup, use and maintain.
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.
