Cabelas has these Aluminum Pots available and they beat the best local pricing I have come across even with shipping included.

Cabela's Aluminum Boiling Pots/Baskets

I am considering the 42qt pot for full boil extract brews until I can put together equipment for all grain.

What do you think?

Salute!

I think these at waresdirect are nice. They have a nice thick bottom. They come with a lid, but no strainer basket. I bought a 24 qt for making cheese. The 60 qt would be great for 10 gallon batches. The 40 qt would do well for 5 gallon batches.


Edit: Oops, I notice now you were looking at aluminum. Here is the waresdirect link for their aluminum pots Aluminum Stock Pots

I will do you one better. On ebay there is a 5 pot set that includes sizes ranging from 20qt to 52qt for $169.99 shipped. I almost pulled the trigger today but I am broker than a joke.

Maybe a little OT but I think you can save some money getting a $30 keg of craigslist and cutting it open. Then you have plenty of space for your full boils and are ready for an all-grain upgrade.

There is a local guy I have purchased Cornies from that can do that for me and I have considered it, but I do all my boils on a Tappan Stove in the basement of my home at this time. The stove has one high output burner that I think (I know) can handle 5 gallon full boils but I think a keg would be to difficult to work with inside on a stove top.

Going to look into some of the sites provided by others before making a purchase.

Great idea though.... thanks.

Salute!

Edit: Just checked WaresDirect and they have some really great prices listed for Aluminum and Stainless pots. Now what to do........ SS or AL..... oh my! If only they listed a 40qt SS Pot, I'd be on that in a minute!

Whoa! They do list a 40qt SS pot.......... I am on this tonight. Thanks for the info guys.

bmckee56,

I would go w/ the aluminum for stovetop brewing, better heat transfer w/ a marginal heat source may boil quicker. Just my O.

This is where I got my 40 qt. pot from. I wish I had gotten the 60 qt. I have been very satisfied with my pot except it is a bit too small.
