i'm looking at this stainless pot for doing 5 gallon batches:

Update International (SPS-32) - 32 qt Stainless Steel Stock Pot w/Cover

Anyone have any opinions on the construction or brand?

Looks like a nice pot to me, however if you are stovetopping, a sandwich base pot requires more heat to reach a boil and might present a challenge. If stovetopping, I would go aluminum...YMMV.

edit...i see you are on a burner...the ss pot should work well.

Most pots that have a sandwich bottom are aluminum coated in SS. I have a 5 gallon pot like this and used it fine on weak ass 40 year old stovetops no problem.
