This is my first brew and I bought a new cheep 35 qt stainless steel
Stock pot for @ $45
I filled it with 5 gal. water and boiled it for 45 minutes at a low
Just wanted a dry (or wet) run through.
After I empty the pot I noticed that I could see some rust or metal on
the bottom that wasn't there before I used it.
I know this is a cheep pot and the stainless steel isn't too thick.
My question is, is this going to be a problem with my brew.
I plan on using a gas burner in the garage to cook my brew.
Thanks for the help

Re: Brew pot problem?
The problem isn't the pot, it's the water. You apparently have hard
water. Boiling is a common way to precipitate out some of the dissolved
solids. The residue on the bottom of your pot is that precipitate.
