Aluminum is fine. I would suggest at least a 40 quart though.

Well, it seems I should retract my potentially flimsy statement. Sounds like a good, cheap starter pot.

hey i'm just stating a fact. studies show that aluminum is linked with Alzheimer's disease.

For that price, i'd get one too.

Wanna save money on SS pots? Find a salvage yard that specializes in restaurant supplies. There's usually one or two in every city. Most will have some big assed used SS stock pots for very little cash, like five bucks or less.

That is a good price, you may just want to look around a little more. If you can't find any good SS prices, then go for it.
LOL I bought the same pots, same price at the same store within the last few months.

They both allow me to do full boils, partial mashes and even steam crab legs...

I'm gonna say we not go down this road because it's already been done before. If you really want to go check out the safety of aluminum pots along with pros and cons check out this thread:

not to be rude but have you read those reports??? it shows a link between aluminum and alzheimer's. mind you, it also states that there is no hard proof that it actually causes it either. so to say "false" in the above link is wrong. it should be told the way it is, that it hasn't been proven to or proven not to cause AL. But, saying that, there are stats that show a higher level of aluminum in autopsy's of AL patience. it's something that people should think about. my wife's grandmother died with it and when she was slowing going downhill the family read nearly every report possible on the disease.

just pointing out that just because a homebrewer suggest that something is safe, doesn't mean it really is. each person should do more research to see what is actually safe or not. people posting straight out "true or false" should be careful not to mislead people.

Like i said before, we still have a big pot (aluminum) that we use for sauces and such. most studies say that pots, pan, and utensils don't give off much aluminum in your food.

I would go ahead and get it. Stainless is prettier not better. I work in the seafood industry and everyone will tell you that you MUST buy SS cause AL. does not last. Then I show them some of the AL stuff we have that gets used all day EVERY day and is about 20 years old.

PS there is no connection to Alzheimer and aluminum.

the link you just posted, did you read it? don't just post random links if you can't take the time to read them. there are many more that show the connection as well. but they all have mixed results, with nothing to prove for or against. it states there are links between the two. i'm not saying that if you use a Aluminum pot your going to die from AL.
