Default Bayou Classic 44 Qt SS Stockpot

Does anyone have any experience using these?
They are so much cheaper than the pots that NB, More Beer and Midwest sell.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

They are 20 gauge SS which is ~0.9mm thick as opposed to the 1.2mm thick megapots. That is a pretty sizable quality difference. That being said I am sure the Bayou would work just fine.

Side note: 11 gallons is too small for a full volume 10g boil IMHO.

Side side note: a have seen some very nice pots for excellent deals at outlet stores like Marshalls, etc.

I have that exact kettle and it works out great! It gets to a rolling boil nice and quick and even though it's been through ten brews now looks almost exactly like it did when I first got it. I think the quality is really nice and would buy it again in a second.

I got mine from this site:

I have three of the 62qt variety. Like Jekster, I would buy them again without giving it a second thought.

Mine came from here

I too have a 62 qt Bayou Classic and I'd say it's just big enough to comfortably boil 10G batches considering boil-off, the immersion chiller and trub loss. I bought mine in December and most places I checked were out of stock. I ended up getting it from weliveoutside.com. When I ordered it they sold it without the steamer insert, but they only list it with the insert now.

That's exactly why brewers like using keggles. They're WAY cheaper.

I have that one and the 34qt from that site. I like them both but will be some day this year stepping up to a 140qt.
