I've been researching for a 10 Gallon brew pot for my inevitable move to AG. I found this one but either:
a.) I've found a really awesome deal and I should snag it immediately
b.) It is a thin walled piece of junk and I should stay away
Does anyone have any experience with this brand and is the correct answer a or b?Update International Stock Pot 40 Qt. - UPI-APT-40 - APT-40 at Wares Direct
Looks like a deal to me. 4mm walls (> 1/8").

Price is excellent, shipping was 19 bucks, which IMO is a bit steep, so at $53 to my door it is an OK deal.
instawares offers free shipping over fifty bucks. Pot is 40 bucks, so throw in a mash paddle, spoon, thermo ?? etc to get the free shipping.http://www.instawares.com/aluminum-stock-pot-o-apt-40.upi-apt40.0.7.htmhttp://www.instawares.com/wooden-spoon-jr3438.jr3438.0.7.htmhttp://www.instawares.com/winco-solid-s-s.wdi-bsot18.0.7.htmhttp://www.instawares.com/hardwood-stirring-paddle-jr3430.jr3430.0.7.htm
I vote upgrade to a bigger pot, a 15G will let you do 10G batches if your careful or a 20G fit a 10G batch easily. The 15G will cost $11 more.
I have purchased 3 Update Stainless pots and they were all excellent! No experience at all with Aluminum version.
