Default Is this pot ok to use? (pic)

I borrowed this pot from a friend, he has cooked crawfish in it before. I have scrubbed it really good but there are some spots on it (see pic). Is this going to cause any off flavors? I boiled some water in it earlier and tasted it after it had cooled and it tasted normal.

I agree. If it's stainless you should be able to get it clean. If it's aluminum you have a good seafood boil pot and need to get a new brewpot.

Hello...the pot look's aluminum, I would boil some water with lemon juice in it...this will help remove the unwanted flavors and previous burnt on food....however when you use this for beer, leave the burnt on look...it will place a layer that protect the aluminum from leaching in to your wort.

A soak in PBW if it's stainless steel would likely take care of all the residue. My stainless steel brewpot looks like that once in a while and needs a soak in PBW to get it gleaming.

IMO you could use as is...if you prefer saok w/ pbw or dish washer soap and scrub clean. Try bar keepers friend or a scrubbie pad if you want to remove the soiling.

Another way to get the stuff off it is to use a baking soda paste.

I use this stuff for pots, works quite well. You have to scrub a bit but it'll remove anything from Stainless or copper.
