This 40 quart .026" thickness 200 grade stainless pot is ruggedly constructed, and features a ½" nickel plated brass ball valve.  Gallon markers from 1 to 10 are embossed on the side of the pot, and sturdy welded silicone covered handles make it easy to lift.

The ball valve features weldless attachment via a lock nut and silicone washer, and a 1/2" NPT outlet to accept ½" male thread hose barbs.  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).

Not recommended for use with induction stoves.

Very wide SS pot, great for 5 gallon high gravity

Review by David on 4/3/2018

This pot is very wide and allows a lot of surface area for a strong boil. The weldless valve fits well and works great with the 3/8" kettle screen. The pots handles aren't the strongest but can move 6 gallons of wort without issues. I will recommend this cheap entry pot for all beginner brewers.

Great Boil Kettle

Review by RobJ on 6/4/2016

I got this because of a sale. Initially went for the 32qt but the sale price of the 40 qt just could not be beat. This appears to be more pot than I require however if I were to go All Grain, it would be perfect for 5 g batches. I also purchased the 1/2" Brass hose barb, and received the ball valve and kettle screen in addition. Everything works perfectly. I've used it once so far and am very pleased. This does require a burner and not a stove. Happy Brewing!

Updated Handles...Excellent Brew Pot

Review by Joshua on 7/4/2014

I bought the last version and the handles broke after minimal use. Williams was awesome and sent me a replacement pot. It is great: sturdy and well built. Williams rocks!

40 q Pot

Review by Thomas on 5/24/2014

No complaits. I use a kettle screen and weldless thermometer. The lid has a hole in the center for an additional thermomter if desired. The edge is notched to accept a work chiller. I start with a 6-6.5 gal boil. You have to a bit attentive so avoid a boilover.

Great for 6.5 gallon boils

Review by Duane on 5/24/2014

This is my goto pot when extract brewing 5 gallon batches. It's light, stable, sits on my turkey burner and does a great job. In addition, it used to store equipment when not brewing.

Q: Will this be okay for a regular kitchen gas stovetop or is this 8 gallon too big?

A: Yes, as long as it is a gas stove, the pot will straddle two burners, but should work.

Q: I ran a test boil with this pot on an Anvil propane burner, and came up with an evaporation rate of about 25% per hour. Does that seem reasonable?

A: This sounds okay, vary the heat on the burner to change the evaporation rate.
