Well, throwing caution to the the wind I ordered 3 sets the other day. I'll break them up and keep the 3 largest pots; there's a few local guys interested in the smaller pots.

I'll report back in once I get them.

I bought a set also. I have not brewed or boiled anything in them yet but I'll comment on the thickness.

They feel and seem just as thick and sturdy as the 10 gallon economy pot from Northern Brewer that I've been using for 3 year with over 100 batches and I have no complains about that pot.

I just got a set of these yesterday. I'm planning on using the big one for a boil kettle and the 17.5 gallon one as a direct fired mash tun with a false bottom. The lids are super crappy but the actual pots seem to not be too bad. Especially for the money.

Also, the handles rust since they must not be stainless, but not a big deal. The bottom of my 17.5 warped a little from my burner after 3 batches since something burned on it.

How could something burn on it? Did you fire it dry?

Scorched to the bottom. I think it was my biab as it has turned brown/black in spots. We had to add heat when mashing and usually don't have a problem with the bag getting singed. Looks like this time we added heat too quickly or didn't raise the bag enough

I just bought two sets of Jarhill stock pots and I cannot get the stickers off. I've tried warm soapy water, alcohol, acetone... Nothing works. Any suggestions?

OK, I finally messed around with mine yesterday. These bad boys are big, but hey, that's what we were hoping for!

My thoughts:

1. The handles seem quite solid, but I wouldn't move the pot with them when full.

2. The metal seems a bit thin; it doesn't have a really 'sturdy' feel to it. The thickness is probably about the same as one of my 5 gallon pots. In other words, more than adequate for holding the liquid. On heat transfer, see #3 and #4.

3. On one batch of beer, I cranked my Blichmann burner to full out heat and has zero issues with scorching.

4. On another batch, I used a stainless hop filter and allowed it to rest on the bottom of the pot. Scorching did ensure underneath it. Do not put solid materials on the bottom of the pot! *note: I had the Blichmann at 100% for this as well.

5. Removing the sticker was a bit tricky until I remembered a trick--I dabbed some olive oil onto the sticker, which helps to dissolve the glue's solvent. Then some dish soap took care of the rest, easy peasy.

6. Even on a 5 gallon batch the boil foam reached to 3/4 full.....scary stuff!

7. Boil off with the Blichmann and this pot seems to be about 2.5-3 gallons an hour o.O

The pics attached are for the pot on the Blichmann burner with roughly 5.5 gallons in the pot.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the pictures! Which pot size is that? These things are still awfully tempting. I wish I could just get 3 of the same size. Has anyone tried measuring their exact capacity? I have heard of other pots being slightly smaller than advertised.
