As long as you boil water in the aluminum pot prior to using it, you should have no problems. I bought a new 30 qt aluminum pot this weekend. Boiled 6 gal of water in it Sat and brewed on Sun. The boiling water helps to seal the pores in the aluminum. You will see a change in the "color" of the inside of the pot. It will get much more dull once it's where it needs to be.
