The 8 Gallon
Heavy Duty brewpot is perfect for those looking to boil their
entire 5 gallon batch at one time. Allows plenty of room for
boilover prevention. Pot measures 13.75" tall x 14.75"
Can also be
used to cook down your xylem sap into great maple syrup. When
fitted with a spigot, brass or stainless steel, and a 3" dial
thermometer this kettle with be one of the best things you have to
make your maple syrup.

Great brewpot... been using for about 2 years now and have zero complaints. Much more affordable than the big-name brands with the same quality. Wish it had internal liquid-level markings (perhaps something HBH could etch into the sides?) but I certainly . . .

The base of this pot is perfect. The copper coated with stainless provides a much more even heating and none of that slight burn taste that my old pot had. Same thing about the thermometer.. Would have had it mounted much lower. Really do not need . . .
From Mark Robertson of Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands on 9/20/2013.
Very nice, heavy gauge stainless steel with aluminum clad bottom. The only "problem" I have is from my own lack of foresight: I often want to prepare only 3 gallons or so. I had you place the thermometer about half way up the side. Duh! On the smaller . . .
1/13/2016 – While looking through your site it looks like you guys will install a spigot kit on a brewpot if they are both purchased at the same time. Is that right? and if so, more specifically does that apply to the 8gal Heavy Duty stainless brew pot?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes indeed. We will install a spigot on any and every brew pot we offer. (Excluding Blichmann Engineering pots)

12/7/2009 – I am brand new to home brewing and need to know exactly what I should buy to get started. I just want to begin to try to make my own beer and then continue to refine it over time. Please let me know exactly what I need to buy to make my first batch!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: What you need are:1) A Homebrew Heaven Equipment Kit (Complete or DeLuxe version, your choice). Both are good, the DeLuxe Kit just contains more "convenience" items.2) An Ingredient Kit of your choice (like Wizard Wheat, Seattle Rain Beer, etc...again your choice). These are available from a drop-down list when you buy the Equipment Kit. . . .
7/23/2008 – I am considering buying one of your kits and am wondering for the brewpot if a electric turkey frier would work or if there is some reason that this wouldn't work. Thanks this site is great.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Can't say about your frier. Haven't seen an ELECTRIC version of one... The propane powered ones might be alright, but they usually sell and aluminum pot with it. Stainless is a better choice.Oooooops...After looking at an electric one online, I would now say to avoid electric turkey fryers. They appear to have the heating element INSIDE . . .
1/26/2008 – I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Heck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will actually answer as long as it's business hours!
3/30/2007 – i just made my first batch of home brew,and realized i used an aluminum pot to brew it on the stove. is this safe?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Homebrewers have taken sides over this issue for years. We feel that stainless steel is the BEST material, however.Aluminum is light, transfers heat quickly and is inexpensive to buy. Drawbacks to aluminum brewpots are that it will "pit" over time, it doesn't clean as easily, it will dent easier, and even the contention that aluminum contributes . . .
3/8/2007 – Can you do a 10 gal boil in a 12 gal pot? Taking into consideration you would have to use at least 11 gal of wort due to evaparation?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's pretty marginal. It IS possible to add some water DURING the boil to replace that lost to evaporation. Consider too, that you will lose more like 2 gallons to evaporation for a 10 gallon batch. It could probably be done, but...Bigger is better!
2/21/2007 – Is it true that the "harder" the boil with more water, the better results in the beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Two separate questions, actually. 1) Boiling "harder" probably has no effect. Boiling is boiling, ...temperature-wise.2) More water (a thinner wort) definately DOES make a difference. A thinner, less concentrated wort will cause less carmelization of the malt sugars, and therefor a) make a lighter colored beer b) make a more fermentable . . .
1/27/2007 – My next goal in brewing is to go to a full 5 gallon boil. My kitchen stove is halogen so I just don't think I can do it without an outdoor burner. I was hoping you could give me a recommendation. I am looking for something with fine jets as I heard this is much better to prevent scorching or else is gas efficient. Also I heard the pot . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You CAN'T find a better burner than this one. Gets very hot, yet has many fine jets to disperse the heat evenly:All the pots we sell are quality grade pots. Just pick a size that works for you. If you are considering all-grain brewing in the future, a large pot is a MUST. Here is a linkg to that category:
11/5/2006 – I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You sure can. It is literally made of bricks and mortar, in South Everett. Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204425-355-8865Hours are 10-6:30 M-F and 9:30-5 on Saturdaysand 11:00am-3pm on Sundays
10/19/2006 – I currently brew using extract but want to go to all grain brewing. Could you recommend the proper size brewpot and burner assembly required to make up to 7 gallons. I have a 3, 5, and 7 gal carboy.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Like so many things, there is no single right answer. Higher gravity beers, like bocks and porters etc require more grain, and therefor more volume in the mash kettle. American style beers require less volumn. How carefully you control the all-grain mashing process also dictates how much grain is required. Given the above, I would . . .
12/22/2005 – I am making 5 gallon batches of brew from kits right now, and expect to move up to whole grain eventually. I was planning to get a brew pot with the spigot & thermometer fitting installed, but I'm not sure the 6 gallon pot is big enough - what happened to the 7.5 gallon pot?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I agree. A larger pot would be better for all-grain brewing.The 7.5 gallon pot is unavailable, but we now have an 8 gallon pot that works well for 5 gallon all-grain brewing.Many brewers find that as long as they are "stepping up", it makes sense to start making 10 gallon batches. Since you will be spending twice as much time MAKING . . .
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here! We have a large selection of hops, yeasts, grains and everything you need in the way of ingredients. Here is a link:A good way to get started is to choose one of our ingredient (recipe) kits. They get you started the right way!
