I have been looking for a 15 or 20 gallon pot to brew 10 gallon batches in and the only economical pots seem to be the Concord pots. On a whim, I searched for a 70 qt pot on ebay and came up with an auction for a pair on pots, one was 70 qt and the other was 96 qt for.....$46.99!!!! I figured I would use the 70 qt and save the 90 qt if I ever decide I need to brew a 15 gallon batch. I am wondering the quality. They are saying they are 18/10 stainless and they are just under 1 mm thick. I understand that seems to be a little thin, but I am hoping they are heavy duty enough to withstand many batches (though I will have the spare 96 qt pot! :P )

They also seem pretty tall as opposed to many of the wider pots out there. Here is the link if anyone is interested:

Let me know what you think!

BTW, shipping was $34 to NY from their location in AZ.

I'm surprised no one has bought these. They are less than half price of the concords. I'll let you know what I think of them when I get them in a week.

This is a link that talks about that grade of SS. Looks like if u modify it at all ur best bet is to go weldless, but otherwise I can't say much more about it.

These don't appear to have anything on the bottom to help distribute the heat or thicken the bottom so u may want to consider a false bottom if ur going to use them as a MLT so u don't scorch the grains.

I'd def post back with ur thoughts when you get them.

Smoking deal, 17.5 gallon HLT and 24 gallon boil kettle for under $100 shipped.
I wouldn't hesitate to try them out. Definitely wouldn't try to lift them full and make sure the bottoms are well supported though.

That is a scary thought!! Didn't even think about picking up 10 gallons of wort and worrying about the bottom buckling. If they are anything like my current, cheap Williams Homebrewing pot, I think I may be ok.

I just ordered them. I want to move up from extract to BIAB. Does anybody have any recommendations on what type of valve to use when I port one of them?

I am just going ot get a standard weldless valve for them at the moment since it serves its purpose and is not very expensive (less than $20). I would love to get a thermometer/ball valve, but not really interested in spending the money required to get a quality one ($100?)
