DetailsA Brew Kettle of Epic Proportions!
The 15 Gallon Tall Boy® is serious kettle for the brewer who wants the option to brew 5 or 10 gallon batches. The 15 gallon size allows plenty of space to boil 11-12 gallons of wort.
This kettle can also serve as a mash tun for 5 gallon all-grain brewers using the optional false bottom. Easily accommodates even the largest grain bills.
Ideal for: Boiling 11-12 gallons of wort.
This is no repurposed stock pot. The Tall Boy® is made specifically for homebrewers. Brew scientists have determined that the ideal height to diameter ratio for a brew kettle should be 1.2:1 in order to optimize boil performance. The Tall Boy reduces evaporative losses, and less evaporative cooling means a more vigorous boil. A vigorous boil means more volatilization of off flavors, and better hop utilization. All of that means better beer. Add to that it’s 4mm thick tri-clad bottom, designed to stop bullets and prevent scorching, and you’ve got a serious brewer’s tool. The Tall Boy logo is laser etched into the surface as a subtle indication to the world that you take brewing seriously.

4.9 / 5.015 ReviewsNice upgradeSolid kettle. I had my eye on Tall Boys because they appeared to be just like the Megapots but without the rubber handles and without the price. Nice upgrade from my aluminum pot which is now my hot liquor tank.March 19, 2016Great ProductI was impressed with the thick gage of the pot, the triple clad bottom and the quality overall design of this brewing pot.January 31, 2016Great!The Tall Boy is a perfect size for a full brew and just I needed to step up my brewing process.August 3, 2016February 6, 2016Brewmaster ArronWorks perfect for full volume boils to produce 10 gallons of beer.August 3, 2016Excellent Boil KettleWorked great for my brew a few weeks ago. Had it outside on a propane burner in the cold and it boiled in no time! Definitely a quality kettle that I would recommend to fellow brewers.January 19, 2016Great for the priceSolid construction, bottom is actually thicker than advertised (5mm). Very happy with it!December 1, 2015I have not used it to dateI have been brewing with a 5 gal pot for about ten years and wanted to try a full batch boil to see if it made a difference in the quality of the beer. Now that I have the big kettle, we shall see!!!January 1, 2016Tall Boy Brew Kettle; a great buy for beginner brewersI just got into the hobby of homebrewing and while I wasn't expecting a brew kettle to be close to $100, it was a fantastic investment for future uses. I can make standard 5 gallon batches in the kettle with plenty of extra room so it never feels like I'm close to boiling over or sloshing. The extra room also helps for the displacement when the wort chiller is put in. Build quality is good, not too heavy but not too light. The top is a bit thin, but it's the top to a brew kettle, so it seems more like a formality than a necessity anyway.February 9, 2016

Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 10 answersJulian: since you have bought this would you please check to see if a magnet will stick to the bottom of this kettle. For induction, the thicker the better as long as it is strongly magnetic.
ThanksBEST ANSWER: Tall Boy kettles do have magnetic/steel bottoms and are conducive to induction cooking. There are numerous forum posts out there from urban home brewers using Tall Boys with induction cooktops as an option to outdoor burners.Is there a basket that can be used with or is compatible with this kettle for an electric element biab setup?BEST ANSWER: Hi Neil,
Thanks for contacting us about this. If you're looking to do electric, I'm sorry to say that we do not carry the heating elements necessary for this. Feel free to give us a call if you have any other questions.Does this kettle have volume markers?BEST ANSWER: It doesn’t, but my husband made volume markers with a Sharpie on the outside of the kettle. He measured out water in a gallon jug. The marks weren’t affected by the heat during brewing. He really loves the Tall Boy; it was a Christmas gift. Highly recommends it.What is the thickness and grade of the stainless steel?BEST ANSWER: The wall thickness of the 8 and 10 gallon is .08 mm; the larger ones are 1mm thick. The bottom portion is 400-series, and the walls are of 201-series stainless steel.Is this kettle induction ready? In other words, will it work on an induction cooktop?BEST ANSWER: I just ordered it. Specs say that it's 4mm on the bottom so I would think that it probably will take a lot of time to bring 5 gallons to a boil on an induction cooktop. I have a 1500w hot plate and have tried it before, took almost an hour just to bring it to a boil.
