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.

Will the be fine to cook my wort in?
Thanks in advance.
It'll work, but you don't cook wort, you boil it!

Thanks for the quick response, i will be BOILING my wort in a few days.
also, check out the definition of cook.
to prepare by the use of heat, as by boiling, baking, or roasting. - Bazinga
I just might be cooking my wort
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.
