Default How's this pot?

Would this pot be any good to pick up? Also, would it be too much for a normal stove?

Id say yeah, it will work... but will your stove top have the oomph (that is a technical term) to boil it?

That might be a bit large for the average home stove, but it you have gas burners I've heard of people spanning two burners with large pots. You could also possibly damage your stove top with all the weight if you are trying to do a big batch, but that's probably unlikely. Just be cautious on your first test run, watch for scorching the stove top, too.

As far as the possibilities of aluminum being bad for your beer, just don't use a caustic cleaner on it so that you don't remove the oxidation layer that will form after the first use that will keep any more aluminum from leeching into the beer. This is a very, VERY over-rated danger, it won't hurt you.

Looks good but for aluminum that is kind of high... I would continue looking. Also, is your stove electric or gas? We just bought our house and it has a gas wirlpool stove with the "power burner" option, and it took close to friggin 40 min to bring 4 gallons to a boil. If you are going to be doing full boils, I would also invest in a propane burner. Tell the wife (if married) that you dont want to stink up the house, and that your only thinking of her. For the record, that line has about a 23.33% chance of working, unfortunatly my wife was not in that percentage. I still put in a bid for one today on ebay!

The stove is electric and I'm not sure that line would work on my wife but hell, it's worth a shot. Care to point me in the direction of a good propane burner that won't break the bank?

Perhaps.
Perhaps I have used an aluminum pot before.

Look to any Hispanic markets for a Tamale pot. Better deal, especially for someone who wants to steep or use a bag. They come with a removable tray that sits an inch or two off the bottom.
