Sorry, but that is old, disproven BS. I have a wall full of ribbons I won for beers boiled in AL pots.

Yep. I started out with a turkey fryer setup that had a propane burner and a 7.5 gal. AL kettle. I did Ag partial boils in the kettle and started winning ribbons. Someone eventually gave me a converted keg to use for boiling, but 15 years and 453 batches later I still use that AL kettle to heat water for my mash.

If you want to convince him, at the top of the pic are just a few of the ribbons I won with the AL kettle. The kettle itself is sitting on the burner on the pic.

It's the brewer that makes the beer, not the equipment. I've brewed 453 batches over the last 16 tears using that setup. If I thought that something else would make better beer, I would have changed a long time ago!
