boil pot for BIG beers that need extra time in the boil kettle. With all the surface area that thing has it might cut a half hour off of a 2 hour boil...

Electric HLT or direct fired Mash tun...

Open fermenter!!!

Heat exchanger for herms or precooling water for your chiller.

Also looks great for holding your crushed grain before mash in.
