Man, I love this pot. I used it for a partial mash kit I brewed on Saturday, and it worked great. The pot perfectly spans two burners on my stove top, so I was able to have a little over 6 gallons at a full rolling boil, which wouldn't have been possible in my other 6 gallon pot because it is narrower.

I also timed how long it took to get to mash in temps and then to boiling. I tested this with about 12 gallons in the pot. I wanted to build up a layer of oxidation, and I figured I might as well time it. Keep in mind that this was on my electric stove top in my apartment, with the pot sitting on two burners at once.

Started at 120F with the hot water from the tap.
28min to 166F
58min to 212F, or boiling

That isn't bad at all considering this was all inside, in one pot. I just ordered the ingredients for my first all grain batch, I cannot wait. I am going to do BIAB.

I think i want to use a counterflow chiller method described in this thread
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/coun...utorial-51793/

would I be able to apply the solder type fittings described in this thread to my pot?
I'd go with a weld-less fitting from Bargain Fittings.

Just picked up one of these today at HD for $28 bucks. at that price, its damn near free. I might buy another at that price, just to have a spare. its a little thinner guage aluminum than the the 40 quart aluminum pot I currently use, but it fits nicely on top of my natural gas hurricane burner. this is going to work great, so i can now brew 10 gallon batches, and reduce how often i have to brew i had been trying to locate a used 15 gallon keg to convert , but they are hard to come buy. now I just need to find a bigger brew bucket/barrell .

yeah, ditto - even with shipping it's a better deal than I can find locally.

Here is the link to the Home Depot item
