Default stock pot

yes i know the question gets asked alot and i'm sure alot of ou are tired of hearing about it.but i was wondering if this one would make a good pot

http://www.amazon.com/King-Kooker-30...476755&sr=8-14


i was thinking that with the spigot it would be alright and be easier to move the wort from the pot to carboy after it's cooled.thanks

Didja read the reviews on Amazon? None of the three people there who took time to write a review seemed to like it. Two of them had dents, two of them had leaky spigots. Sounds like a disaster of a product to me.

Plus, at just 7.5 gallons, it's tight for a 5 gallon batch. You want an 8+ gallon pot (32qts) minimum as your brew kettle, otherwise you're spending $ for fermcap (anti-foam drops) in every batch.
