Default Opion on this Brew Pot? Yay, or Nay?

Hi,

Can you guys tell me if this POT is suitable for brewing? I don't see why it wouldn't be, but I'd rather ask you guys for advice before I blow $100.

So Good or Bad?

Thank you!!

I've got the same pot but in a 36 quart size. It's a damn fine pot in my opinion.

Thank you!!
It'll be perfect as long as it meets YOUR needs on your stove.

For my particular stove, I chose this 35 Qt one because I needed something larger in diameter (notice it's not as tall) so it would fit over both the front and back gas burners. Now I have PERFECT control over the temperature with the mashing process:

Yeah, thanks!

I think this is important too because SWMBO would flip.

I bought a 30 quart stainless steel kettle at Bass Pro, has a spigot on the bottom too. I replaced the chromed spigot with a 1/2 stainless ball valve and weldless bulkhead fitting.

Worked great this weekend for my first brew in 10 years.
