Check out their other auctions for something more close to a reasonable size. 25 gallons for $109 + 39.00 shipping.

I don't like that all of their pictures show the same pot. Makes me think they may not really have those in stock.

More reasonable size?!??! Whatcha talking about Willis! 230 qts is perfect for 1bbl brewing, maybe even a tad small.

2 things come to mind here.

1) The pot in the picture is not the one described. The dimensions are way off compared to its surroundings.(tiles, cabinet drawers, etc)

2) The measurements given only give you a 204 Qt pot.

Volume=pi x (r^2) x height x .004329(conversion factor for cubic inches to gallons) x 4(to get to quarts)

V=3.14 x 144 x 26 x .004329 x 4
V=11756.16 cubic inches x .004329 x 4
V=203.57 Qt

They do however seem reputable, according to their ebaay score

ive messaged them about the pots and they said their supplier can get them in whenever. i calculated their pot size's on the net and came up with those same sizes. their 230qt is an over estimat and their 180 is an under estimate at 24"x24". thats also a big price difference for a few more gallons.

You're right, there is no way that's a 230 qt pot in the picture.

230 qts. divided by 4 = 57.5 gallons
57.5 gallons divided by 15.5 = 3.7 kegs

There is no way that a pot equal to the size of more than three and a half kegs would fit on that little counter. Maybe my math is off but it doesn't seem to make sense.

this guy on ebay has been brought up several times here by people who have bought them and all with good reviews other than the pot is a little thin and not tri clad on the bottom.
