10 months agoExcellent tool for home brewingI already have a smaller pot, but I find having alternatives allows chilling, leveling, boiling, and sanitizing much faster and easier if I can use multiple containers. Give me this pot, a fermenter, and a secondary fermenter and I can have a constant rotation of beers ready to keg or bottle.February 2, 2017Purchased

over 2 years agoAugust 2, 2016Boiling NightmareI always like filling my brew pot as high as possible and then keeping a close eye on it during the boil. Unfortunately that is not a good idea with this pot. The rivets that hold the handles in place are a couple inches below the rim, and leak like sieve. I spent half my boil carefully trying to clean the wort off my stovetop without setting the rag on fire from the burner. DO NOT BUYApril 21, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesKyle,
Thanks for the review and sorry for the trouble. While I don't recommend filling a kettle all the way up to the rivets for boiling, the rivets certainly shouldn't leak. If the kettle will not work out for you I'd be happy to either replace it or refund you for the kettle. Please let me know which option you prefer.
Cheers!November 2, 2016Midwest Supplies5 Gal. Economy Stainless Steel Brewing PotExcellent kettle added a drain valve and temp. probeMarch 23, 2016Good Pot for the PriceI bought this kettle back in 2011 with my equipment kit after 4 years still use it periodically to heat water. If you are just a beginner in this hobby as I was I would not be afraid to purchase this kettle. It will do the job and it will make beer, you will eventually upgrade this kettle, if you can do it now I would recommend a better kettle.March 6, 2016Great Brew Pot for the PriceI am just starting home brewing and purchased this along with the Brewing Starter Kit. I boiled my first batch last a few weeks ago in this on a Turkey Burner and had no issues. This got the brew up to temperature quickly and didn't seem to loose any heat. It was very easy to clean. I drilled a hole in it with a step drill bit and added one of the Kettlevalves myselft to allow for me to drain it easier and it did not bend or anything (despite how thin the walls seem). All in all a great purchase for a starter pot. And I had plent of room for a full 5 gallon brew.April 4, 2014good cheap entry to brewing kettle worldAfter buying a brewing starter kit, I needed a kettle. Having dropped the money on the rest of the equipment, I went cheap on the kettle. This kettle has worked well and served its purpose. Being thin gauge steel, the bottom does get pretty hot. _x000D_When brewing with an extract kit, I have found it better to removed the hot kettle of liquid from the burner, this helps cool the bottom just enough to keep the extract from quickly sinking to the bottom and searing itself to the bottom of the kettle as it does if I leave it on the burner._x000D_Good value, does what is needed of it, but is not exceptional.March 24, 2014
