Actually, I suspect this is not true. I think there could be a strong preference among homebrewers for SS over aluminum because people believe it is safer. But I doubt that many people have strong convictions that SS is actually significantly BETTER. Aside from being 'prettier', what significant advantage would a SS pot have over an aluminum pot for a home brewer? Personally, if you look at both types of pots, dollar-for-dollar, aluminum pots hold most of the significant advantages.
