8 Gallon Brewpot
From Alan Bourke of Chula Vista, California on 3/6/2015.
Worked great! Light weight and handled the 5 gallon batch.
very nice kettle
From chris hatchel of hutchinson, Kansas on 3/25/2013.
Great kettle at a reasonable price. Very good size for 5-6 gallon batches. Love it!
decent for the money
From roger alumbaugh of harrington, Washington on 1/11/2013.
This is a decent pot. Definitely a good value for the money but is not particularly thick. The lid is not as in the picture. It is more domed and not very flat so if you want one with a flat lid.. go with the heavy duty version. It is not what will . . .
Great Buy for the money
From Jarrett Long of Arlington, Texas on 6/19/2012.
I purchased this brewpot to go along with my starter beer makeing kit. I picked this pot because it was cost effective and holds 8 gallons! While making 5 gallon batches this is expecialy helpful because it helps avoid boil overs. I also had a spigot . . .
From henry58 of Tj, Mexico on 2/23/2012.
nice! is exactly what i wanted and very fast service thanks
From Jeremy West of Fernley, Nevada on 2/4/2012.
Very fast processing and delivery. It comes with a spigot, all you have to do is put it on. Awesome Awesome Awesome.
From David Piller of Henderson, Kentucky on 1/31/2012.
Good quality. Solid and well made.
Purchased 7.5 Gallon Brewpot
From Anonymous of San Diego, California on 1/20/2012.
I purchased a 7.5 gallon brew pot from Homebrew Heaven. Homebrew Heaven's prices are the best on the Internet for this product and the brewpot is shipped with a brass spigot and is pre-drilled for the spigot attachment. My first experience with Homebrew . . .
From Anonymous of Fort Mill, South Carolina on 1/17/2012.
Bigger than I needed, but worked well with my first batch. I ordered the kettle and spigot seperat sly, but the folks at Homebrew Heaven were kind enough to send me the new kettle with the spigot already attached at a discount.
From Nick of Union Hall, Virginia on 12/28/2011.
I bought this for a friend in a kit to start making beer. Works very well! I then turned around and bought another one for my brother so that he could to start making beer.
From Bob of Lexington, Illinois on 12/17/2011.
Good quality for the money. Handles are hollow, stay cooler while brewing so adjusting position on burner or quick pickup to prevent a boilover is easy.
From Sudsman of Chelan, Washington on 12/16/2011.
I cannot say how pleased I am with the addition of this 8 Gal. brew pot to my home brewery. It works great. I also must say the staff at Homebrew Heaven goes way beyond expectations with answering questions.
Great brewpot for the money
From Jesse of Fort Collins, Colorado on 12/13/2011.
I purchased this brewpot so I could boil full 5 gallon batches. It is a great brepot for the money. I did have the spout added to it which was installed by Homebrew Heaven. I would recommend this pot to anyone.
From Anonymous of Hartford, Connecticut on 10/25/2011.
This was a great purchase. The pot got warm fast but did not scorch. It kept a good boil and was easy to clean.
From ARTHUR BEATMANN of Mandeville, Louisiana on 9/25/2011.
Very pleased with all items purchased will do business soon Thanks.
pretty good brew pot
From Neil Friedman of Westfir, Oregon on 9/12/2011.
Heats well, lightweight and durable, decent handles and lid, I only wish it had graduations, I filled my 5 gal carboy too full! oh well, it's a good pot. I carved a 5 gallon line on my big wooden spoon...
From Harold Martin of Snohomish, Washington on 6/19/2011.
6/11: After brewing extracts and partials with a 5-gal pot since 11/10 I was ready to start with all grain brewing. This pot was the last piece I needed for this method of brewing. I can do a full 5-gal boil now with up to 7.5-gals. I love this 8-gal . . .
1/2/2014 – I want to get started brewing my own beer. My question is can I brew the wort in my previously used turkey fryer as long as I sanitize the pot?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You didn't mention what your turkey fryer is made of. Often they are aluminum. Homebrewers have taken sides over this (aluminum vs stainless steel) 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 . . .
1/1/2014 – I'm finally getting started with brewing, and I'm looking at getting this ingredient kit (Wizard's Wheat), a brewpot, and the deluxe brewing equipment kit. I have enough bottles and caps.What else would I need to make beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not much...some water, and a way to heat (boil) that beer comes to mind. Do you have a HOT cooker? Some kitchen stoves are pretty wimpy. If you are going to be brewing regularly you might want to invest in an outdoor (propane) cooker. They speed up the process considerably and allow you to take the everything outside. Wives like that... . . .
11/15/2013 – What is the height of 8 gallon brew pot with lid on?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The 8 Gal with lid affixed is 14.5" tall
1/24/2012 – What does "w/spigot kit" mean? It's not explained in the description of the 8 gallon steel pot that is described as 8 gallon stainless steel pot w/spigot kit. Would this mean a hole would be punched in the side, with a 1/2" spigot kit to be put in?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, that's it.We punch a hole and install a bulkhead fitting, as well as a 1/2" npt brass spigot.
12/21/2011 – What is the gauge of the stainless steel on the 8 gallon brewpot?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The wall thickness is 0.8 mm
7/27/2010 – I want to buy a kit that would enable me to do both beer and wine. A friend argues I should go with the wine kit and add the beer brewing stuff. Please let me know exactly what I need to purchase. Also, I intend to use ceramic top beer bottles for my beer. What's the best way to clean them? Do you sell the rubber piece (gaskets) they . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: In general, I would say your friend is on the right track, assuming you have a lot of flip-top bottles around. Those bottles are pretty handy. See below for a link to the replacement gaskets.If you are thinking of making wine from your own juice, fresh fruit etc, then the 5 gallon wine making kit is a good choice. If you want to make wine . . .
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order number is (800) 850-2739
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!
12/28/2007 – Your site is very informative and I appreciate all the info, questions and responses that are provided. I am a complete beginner looking to brew with extract but would eventually like to brew with all grain. What brew pot should I start with? Which Pot should I purchase for all grain brewing? Do you recommend the spigot and thermometer for . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If you intend to stay with 5 gallon batches, this (8 gallon gallon model) is good for both extract and all-grain. The reason I question this is because often, brewers will "step up" to making 10 gallon batches when they do all-grain. The all-grain brewing process takes longer, and therefor many people like to make MORE beer to offset the . . .
12/8/2007 – My husband and I would like to start brewing our own beer. We already have the complete wine kit so what extra things will I need to purchase to make the beer? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not much, aside from the beer ingredients. Starting with one of our Homebrew Heaven ingredient kis is a good way to go. The instructions in the recipe kit will get you going. There are two important differences between making wine and making beer. 1) You will need to boil your beer. This will require a pot to cook your beer in. 2) You'll . . .
11/6/2007 – To brew 5 gallons of beer do I need a 5 gallon brew kettle, or larger?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Bigger is better, in our opinion. The larger pot allows for more water in the boil, fewer boilovers, and for evaporation that occurs during the hour long boil.
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 10am-6:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdaysand 10am-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 . . .
9/26/2006 – I am new to the whole home beer brewing thing, and saw that your website had excellent reviews and was much less expensive than all your competitors. I am going to buy your deluxe brewing kit and wanted to start off making wheat beer, and was wondering if I needed any additional equipment, or any that would make the whole job easier. Thanks. . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We think our kits are quite complete. The only other items you will need, are fairly easy to find. 1) A pot to cook it in At least 4-5 gallons in size. 7-8 is better. Stainless steel is the best material, but enamel is ok too. We sell them, of course, if you need one.2) Bottles. Re-cappable beer bottles are best. They are easy to find . . .
9/22/2006 – I'm completely new to this game. I was looking into the Deluxe Brew Kit. I live in Montana and the temperatures get super cold and very hot. What is the best temp. range for brewing? Also, with this kit what would be the best sized boiling pot to get?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For ales, the "best" temperature range is about 59-78 deg F. You can go higher or lower, but that is normal. For lagers, well, they like it cooler. Say 40-58 deg F or so.The best size boiling pot depends on how much beer you drink! A "normal" batch is 5 gallons, so an 8 gallon brew kettle gallon makes a lot of sense. That gives you room . . .
4/9/2006 – I want to try a single temp infusion all-grain brew. I have your 7.5 gallon brewpot with the spigot installed in the standard location. I beleive I could do this brew in my brewpot, but would need to order a false bottom and maybe a bazooka screen. Not sure from looking around how this would work. The only "hole" in my brewpot is for . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you just need either the Stainless Steel Kettle Screen or a False Bottom. Either one simply screws into the same thru-wall fitting that your spigot uses (only from the inside). You will need another pot to provide the heated sparge water to your mash. That can be done lots of different ways, from simply ladeling it in slowly, to using . . .
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!
10/8/2004 – I am a novice and have only brewed 3 5 gal. batches. My instructions say to boil 2 to 2.5 gallons of wort. Am I correct in reading that you suggest to boil the entire 5 gallons?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Correct. No idea where you got those instructions, but we recommend boiling the full 5 gallons (or more).Using a small brewpot (or less than a full volume boil) causes a "concentrated boil", if you will. Many inexpensive "kits/recipes" put this in their instructions, but it is bad advice. This concentrated, sugary mixture will easily . . .
6/21/2004 – according to the new complete joy of homebrewing you dont need to boil 6 gallons of wort, instead he suggests boiling 1 or 2 gallons and adding water after the wort is in the primary fermenter, what are your thoughts on this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's one man's opinion, and I'll bet if you asked Charlie today, he would recommend a full boil. The book was good in it's time (and still is in many ways), but I beg to differ.Using a small brewpot (or less than a full volume boil) causes a "concentrated boil", if you will. This concentrated, sugary mixture will easily carmelize with . . .
4/7/2004 – i am thinking about ordering the deluxe brewing kit and i was wondering what is the best size stainless steel pot to go with?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If you intend to stay with 5 gallon batches, a 6 to 8 gallon brewpot is a good way to go.We should tell you, tho, that some people find it so much fun that they step up to larger batches, like 10 gallons at a time. For that, the 12-15 gallon brewpot works very well. We even have customer using 50 gallon pots. These overachievers believe . . .
