This 5 gallon pot is great for beginner or occasional brewers. The new design has a dome lid and a vent for less trouble with boil over. Slightly larger than our old 5 gallon pot, meaning the boil can be up to 4.75 gallons, so very little water needs to be added after the boil. Constructed of light gauge stainless steel, made by Progressive. Includes a 5 year warranty.
