GasOne 10 Gallon Stainless Steel Home Brew Kettle Pot (40 QT/10 Gal)

GasOne 10 Gallon Stainless Steel Home Brew Kettle Pot (40 QT/10 Gal)

Check Price

The GasOne 10 Gallon Stainless Steel Home Brew Kettle Pot is a beauty, made from polished stainless steel. We love that the bottom of this pot is made from 3 layers: stainless steel-aluminum-stainless steel. The aluminum layer is tucked in there to improve the heat conduction and distribution so you can get an efficient and even bubble going.

One of the other great “pros” is that this pot can be used on all cooktops, including induction, thanks to the flat, stainless steel bottom. Whether you’re home brewing or experimenting in a commercial kitchen, this pot is compatible.

The handles on the sides of the pot are welded tight, to ensure you can get a firm grip with the whole hand when lifting and shifting the hot pot. You get all of the pieces you need to operate this pot, including sealing tape, o-rings and mini wrench.

Here we have another large pot, clocking in at 10 gallons/40Qt. Like the model above, this is made from stainless steel, but has a shinier, more polished finish. We like that this pot comes equipped with a built-in thermometer, as well as a ball valve.

The strong handles and tight-fitting lid make for safe lifting and boiling, great for outdoor use on burners. As far as we know, this pot doesn’t feature an aluminum base or tri-ply base, which could mean it holds heat slightly less effectively than other pots.

Final verdict:

We think the Concord Stainless Steel Home Brew Kettle Stock Pot ( 40 QT/10 Gal) is a great option for people looking for a large pot, equipped with a thermometer, but which won’t break the bank. The polished finish is attractive and would make a great gift for a novice home brewer.

The tight-fitting lid and sturdy handles are great features for safety and effective brewing. While the pot does come with instructions, it’s a good idea to get an experienced brewer to help you assemble the parts (if you’re a beginner) to ensure you don’t encounter any irritating leaks.

Bayou Classic 1064 Stainless 16-Gallon Stockpot with Spigot and Vented Lid

Cook N Home NC-00359

Next up is an ever bigger pot, clocking in at a whopping 16 gallons. The Bayou Classic Stainless 16-Gallon Stockpot has a high-shine finish and a sturdy stainless steel construction. The spigot is heavy duty, tight and durable, but it does need to be installed once you bring the pot home.

The lid is tight-fitting and vented to allow steam to escape if you wish. You can know exactly how much liquid you are filling your pot with, as there are measure markings up the sides in both gallons and quarts.

Bayou Classic 1064 Stainless 16-Gallon Stockpot with Spigot and Vented Lid
  • 64 quart/16 gallon capacity
  • Side calibration marks in gallons and quarts
  • 1/2 inch stainless ball valve spigot
  • Stainless vented lid

If you want to kit your pot out with steamer trays or perforated baskets, you can do so, thanks to the indentations on the sides to support them. This particular pot doesn’t come with a thermometer, so keep that in mind if you’re planning on making very heat-specific concoctions.

Final verdict:

The Bayou Classic Stainless 16-Gallon Stockpot is a great choice if you require a super large pot, and your budget can stretch slightly further than other models. It’s great for brewing beer, but also for creating large batches of soups, stock and cooking large poultry.

The directions aren’t very detailed, and some users have found that it’s a little tricky to assemble properly, so make sure you get someone to assist you if need be. A great pot for outdoor usage and large batches.

Northern Brewer – Megapot Homebrew Kettle Stock Pot for Beer Brewing

Cook N Home NC-00359

Check Price

This pot is yet another step up, with some awesome features and a slick aesthetic. The Northern Brewer Megapot measures in at 8 gallons (but also comes in 10, 15, 20 and 30 gallons). The pot is made from sturdy stainless steel with a dark, brushed finish for a little edge. We like that the bottom is tri-clad (3 layers) for distributing and holding heat really well.

This attractive pot has a thermometer attached to the side, so you can be stringent with your temperatures when creating your masterpieces. The handles on the pot and the tight-fitting lid are coated with silicone to prevent you from burning your hands…a great touch.

MegaPot 1.2 Brew Kettle - 8 US Gallons (30.3L)
  • The kettle takes a lot of abuse during a brew day, so you need something that's going to stand up

This pot has been designed intelligently, to ensure a “vigorous boil” when your boiling stage comes around. The inside of the pot features gallon measurement markings, but some users have said they wish they were a little more visible when the pot is filled with steam.

Like all pots on this list, the pot must be assembled by you once you get it home. This isn’t too difficult, and there is a manual included, but make sure you study-up first.

Final verdict:

The Northern Brewer Megapot is a little more expensive than other models, but it does have some extra features. We love the silicone-covered handles, built-in thermometer and tri-clad base. This is a serious stock pot for serious homebrewers, ( especially those with an induction cooktop) .
