Default aluminum pot as bottling bucket?

Ok, I recently made two 6 gallon batches of beer in 6.5 gallon carboys. I now need to bottle both of these batches. Unfortunately, the only thing I have that is bigger than 6 gallons (to use as a bottling bucket) is my 8 gallon aluminum brew pot.

Can I use the brew pot as a bottling bucket, or will this be unsanitary?

I use my 8 gallon stainless brew kettle as a bottling bucket. No problems at all.
