This 40 quart deep drawn .026" thickness 200 grade stainless pot features seamless construction, and a ½" nickel plated brass ball valve. The ball valve features weldless attachment via a lock nut and silicone washer, and a 1/2" NPT outlet to accept hose barbs (recommended, see links below). Not recommended for glass top electric stoves (use a gas stove or outdoor burner). Includes pictured stainless steel matching lid.14" tall, 16" diameter.
The valve also features 3/8" NPT female threads on the interior to accept the Brewer's Edge KettleScreen stainless filter screen. (see link below). The KettleScreen functions as a screen for mashing, and removing whole hops from the boil (it tends to get clogged with large amounts of pellet hops).
We tested this with an inexpensive 1800 watt Duxtop brand induction cooktop, and found it took 3 hours for 6 gallons of 60 degree F. water to come to a boil in a 62 degree F. room. We then boiled a batch of beer and it boiled very slowly, but enough to complete the process. So this can be used with induction cooktops, but we recommend more wattage than 1800. If you are going to use a small 1800 watt induction cooktop, it is probably better to get our R19 Brewer's Edge 32 Quart BrewKettle.
