I have purchased a used 12 gallon stock pot to use for brewing. Is there anything special I should do to the pot to get it brew ready?
Wash it BAM your done!
if aluminium scrub till it gleams then boil water in twice to season,do not scrub after water boils
if stainless just clean it and degrease it

grains in pounds(G) X 36(average points per gallon of grains) / batch size in gallons(g) = maximum efficiency(ME)
OG / ME = brewhouse efficiency
I'll PM you my address for proper disposal.
As posted, scrub thoroughly, and I would do a good rolling boil or two just as for safe measure.
Should I use something like a scotch brite pad, sos pad, soft bristle brush?
SOS pad probably most effective, I've used them on SS kettles before. Just make sure you rinse thoroughly, and I would still do a boil in it since you don't know what was in it before.
