Default For Sale - WTS - Monster 90+ gallon brewpot (and burner)

This massive stainless steel brewpot has been sitting in the basement of a Masonic Temple in northern Indiana for a long while. It's in great shape. It was used to brew coffee back when there were enough masons around here to need that big of a pot.

I do believe the glass sight on the thermometer might need replaced.

I personally own a 20 gallon pot and this is more than twice the height of that pot. It's 44" tall and 25" in diameter which I believe converts to a ***90*** Gallon pot. It sits on a burner (pictured).

This pot has to go.

Send me a PM if you're interested in owning this pot for beer brewing.

We're looking to get $750 out of this pot and burner.

**** Edit. Another poster calculated this at 90 gallons below so I edited. My original calculation was 72 gallons. It's a big pot.

The pot:



















The burner:



Reason: Change the size of the brewpot

Where in Northern Indiana is this located? Is this at the Fort Wayne Masonic Temple?

Actually, solving for volume in cubic inches (V = ∏rh) gives you:

∏(12.5)(44) = ∏(156.25)(44) = (3.142)(6875) = 21602.25in

Then, solving for cubic inches per gallon:

1 USGal = 231in, so 21602.25/231 = 93.5 USGal !!

Might want to edit, sounds like a 90 gallon pot...

It's been a long morning here, I just finished my normal coffee pot. That would be a nice upgrade to keep me awake.

It looks like the coffee filter / perkilator thing at the top would be awsome to hold hops...
