BrewBuilt Brewing Kettle (10 Gallon)

Designed for Brewing. Built to Last. ¬ÝThe new line of Brewbuilt kettles, made from 304 stainless steel, offers an unparalleled mix of features for the price. At the very top of the list are two welded-in place couplers that offer a lifetime of leak free use. ¬ÝAs you can imagine, welding in a coupler costs more than punching a hole and using a gasketed (ie weld-less) fitting. Welded fittings offer a permanent connection that to us is worth every penny. ¬ÝThe second unique feature that we absolutely love about these kettles is the notched lid with silicone plug. ¬ÝThis notch allows you so much flexibility; you can use an immersion chiller, one of our Ultimate Sparge Arms for mashing, tie off hop bags, take a temp reading during cooling, or whatever else we all can dream up.

This Kettle has a lot to offer...

Some other features we dig include the internal volume markers from the bottom to the top - so handy for instant reads. ¬ÝThe silicone sleeved handles on the kettle and the lid are a cool feature to protect your hands. The tri-clad bottom with a 4mm core of aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel offers even heat distribution during the boil and also makes it a perfect choice for anyone wanting to use an induction burner. ¬ÝThe bottom coupler is also cool with 1/2" male threads on the outside and 1/2'' female threads on the inside. ¬ÝThose internal threads are so handy... ¬Ýyou can easily install a pick up tube, stainless quick disconnects, a kettle screen, or any other fitting that features 1/2" MPT threads.

Beefy 304 Stainless

These kettles are made from 304 grade stainless. ¬ÝThat means you will have less corrosion issues than with a kettle made from lower grade 201 type stainless. We put these kettles through a corrosive salt water test in the MoreBeer! shop and they passed with flying colors. We also made sure the rivets and riveted handles were also made of stainless steel for a long term, trouble free life. ¬ÝThe 10 and 15 gallon size are made from 1.0mm thick stainless steel. The 22 and 30 gallon size are made with 1.2mm stainless - that's pretty thick stuff - and you will know it when you pick one up. The included ball valve is a two piece design that allows for easy cleaning (we prefer these over 3 piece for ease of assembly) and is also made from 304 stainless.

Size Ratios and stuff

All the Brewbuilt kettles follow the recent trend to a 1.2:1 ratio where the height is 1.2 times the diameter. This is a proven commercial ratio that has been adopted in homebrewing to achieve a more consistent 10% evaporation rate during the boil. ¬ÝWe do like this ratio for boilling. For Mashing we would prefer a little bit shallower but that is a small compromise. Dimensions for a hot-liquor tank, if you are thinking brewing system down the road, are irrelevant as any ratio kettle will do.

Final Words

With welded fittings, a bunch of cool features, and a solid, thick 304 stainless steel core this kettle is a pretty amazing value. There are a host of accessories that will be available soon including a trick false bottom for mashing, a whirlpool arm for recirculating, and more.
