The only thing to be aware of: if the aluminum pot has not been used yet, make sure to boil water in it prior to brewing with it. This will build up a darker oxidation layer that is an important buffer. You want that oxidation layer in place; it prevents the aluminum from leaching into your brew. And, when cleaning your pot after brew day, DO NOT SCRUB IT! Gently wipe it clean, leaving that oxidation layer intact, and you'll be good to go!
