Decent Pot, Thin Bottom Causes Scorching
I brewed only one batch with this pot so far, a Sam Adam's Oktoberfest. It was brewed all-grain on my home stovetop on high heat during mashing and boil - stirring every 15 minutes. I got a scorch spot the size of a quarter that I have not yet been able to rub off as well as brown burn marks delineating my stove's grate. It seems that the stainless steel bottom of this pot is very thin which caused concentrated heat in certain areas, as well as scorching and resulting in darkening my lager. I just spent $43 purchasing an aluminum flame protector. Hopefully, this will protect my beer and my pot on the next brew by evenly redistributing the flame properly. Altogether it is a cheap pot, but a thicker bottom would make it an excellent choice.
