So I just bought a 10 gallon stock pot for an IPA I'm doing today. It's aluminum and I've heard it's smart to boil water for an hour prior to brewing. I'll do this, but can I use that same water that I boiled for my strike water? It just seems a waste to me to boil water and then not use it...please reply!! I'm brewing in about an hour and want to know if this will save some time! Thanks!!

I wouldnt, the purpose is to help the aluminum form a protective layer, but also it will help clean off any chemicals or other solvents that may have been used in manufacturing that are still on it.

My vote is no, as stated above for the same reasons.
Use it to kill some weeds in the cracks of your sidewalk or drive if you want to use it for something.

Stick with SS pots. Aluminum will leach out into solution w/ things like hot wort. Anecdotal evidence from the CDC indicates aluminum as a major factor in Alzheimer's.

id like to see your source on that.
As a culinary school graduate and restaurant employee
everyone eats from aluminum cook where on a very regular basis who ever eat outside of home. I guess we are all going to be filling with aluminum and get Alzheimers.

As long as you build the oxide layer, no leeching occurs...

It's a STOCK POT. STOCK would be one of 'those things like wort'. Along with stew, tea, chili, or a thousand other things that could be cooked in it. If the CDC or any other government organization thought it was dangerous to cook in this pot, you probably wouldn't be able to buy it!
