Default Stockpot question - Granite Ware

I am about to embark on my first batch of home brewed beer. I found an old pot in storage. It is a granite ware pot.

Columbian Home 0707-1 Granite Ware 21-1/2-Quart Steel/Porcelain Water-Bath Canner with Rack

Will the be fine to cook my wort in?

Thanks in advance.

It'll work, but you don't cook wort, you boil it!

You may scorch it if you don't stir when you're adding it but have fun cooking wort either way. =]

Just make sure the porcelain coating isn't cracked or chipped exposing the metal underneath. The metal isn't typically stainless steel, so it will rust.
