Brew Pots

What it does :

A brew pot is used to steep grains and boil the wort. The typical volume should support boiling from 2.5 to 5 gallons (9.5 to 18.9 liters) of wort, with extra volume to prevent boilover.

What it is:

A brew pot is a cooking pot, typically made of stainless steel, that provides double duty for homebrewers.

How it works:

A stainless steel pot provides an ideal way to boil the wort. The pot should be left uncovered during the rolling boil, to ensure undesired substances escape and to avoid boilover.

Preparation:

Brewing pots are used during the hot side of brewing (e.g. wort preparation). They should be cleaned before use, as you would anything used to prepare food. The boiling of the wort should protect it from any contamination resulting from contact with the pot.
