Edit: 14 months later. I wouldn’t change my initial rating on this pot. I use this pot about once a month, and it is still a solid performance with no issues.
I am very pleased with this pot; it is a bit more expensive than some of the other ones I considered. the heavy duty stainless and thick clad bottom help distribute heat and I got a very good even boil. I easily boil 7 gallons with plenty of room for boil ups; I think you could manage an 11 gallon boil session. I wish that the calibrations on the side were a bit larger and visible on the outside of the pot because they are very hard to see inside when the pot is boiling and putting off steam.
the siphon downspout for draining allows getting all of the liquid out of the pot. I learned about whirlpooling which is perfect for this pot to take of the wort and leave the spent hops behind. you can make great beer with the lesser expensive pots available provided you keep your eye out for hot spots and stir well. however, if your budget affords for the difference, this is a good investment pot.
On another review for a MegaPot with valves and fittings, I noticed someone complaining about leaks. If everything is properly installed, using the thread tape, and the nuts snugged up to the right tension, there should be no leaks. If you have leaks, there are instructions online, as well as videos, that can be found with a little searching.
Up until now, I’ve always been a 5-gallon batch home brewer, and I just got tired of doing a lot of work for such a small amount of beer. This will allow me to double and triple my volume with about the same amount of work. I like the larger valve on the pot, which uses a larger hose than my old 3/8″ lines. I’ll be adding a false bottom and possibly a bazooka pipe soon, but this kettle was ready to go within minutes of opening the box and installing the valve and thermometer. If you’re looking for a rock-solid product that is built to last a lifetime, look no farther. This baby rocks.

I bought this pot last week and from the minute I unpacked it, it was night and day compared to my old economy pot! This thing is very heavy duty, has a thick clad bottom for heat distribution, thick walls and also has very useful gallon markings on the inside of the pot where you can easily look at the liquid level and know your volume. Nice heavy lid, rubber grips, and heavy-duty ball valve included. This is a very high quality product, I can’t wait to brew my first batch in it.
