I just started all grain brewing and I'm looking at buying a new brew pot. I don't want to spend a great deal of money. I would like to spend no more then 225 and would like at least a ball valve. Any suggestions would be great.

Thank

What are you looking for the brew pot to do specifically? Will you use it as an MLT or a BK or both?

I have an 8gal megapot from Northern Brewer that works well. It's a good heavy pot that can do full boils. I added my own valve but I think you can have one installed.

I forgot that it is going to be for the BK. I made a mash tun out of a cooler.

This is within $15 of your target price and would work well (also has the ball valve you want).
