Q: What size false bottom do you recommend for this kettle? Thanks
A: we, unfortunately, do not have a matching false bottom to pair with this model of the kettle at this time
Q: Is this pot large enough to brew a 10 gal. batch, or just for more elbow room brewing smaller batches?
A: The kettles complete volume is 10-gallon so it would work for doing partial boil extract 10-gallon batches and 5 gallons all grain recipes. If brewing an all grain 10-gallon batch, a kettle able to accommodate about 12 gallons or so to allow for boil off would be best
Q: Is the bottom tri-clad?
A: the kettles would have a single walled bottom and are not triclad
Q: Do I need a dip tube for the inside of the pot? Which dip tube would work best?
A: The coupling is close enough to the bottom that a dip tube would not be required be can be added using item similar to 35-4321
Q: Are there threads on the inside of the bottom fitting to attach a bazooka screen?
A: the coupling would be full thread so it can accommodate a 1/2" NPT male thread on the inside of the kettle as well
Q: Do you know when these will be back in stock?
A: unfortunately these are currently back ordered from the currently supplier without a set return ETA to provide at this time(Nov 2018)
Q: Do I need to buy any other fittings in order to attach a thermometer? Thank you.
A: if purchasing a thermometer with a 1/2" NPt thread this will fit right into the opening on the kettle with Teflon tape and no other fittings wil be needed
Q: Are these stainless steel?
A: These are made of 304 stainless steel
Q: Are the weldolets on the pot for a 1/2" ID or 1/2 OD pipe?
A: The coupling is 1/2" female NPT so the pipe thread that woudl fit to match is 1/2" Male NPT
Q: Would a 44qt Bayou Classic Stainless basket fit in this kettle?
A: The depth would be fine but the diameter fo the kettle opening is a bit too narrow for the basket to clear
Q: Is the top coupling a full or half coupling?
A: Both couplings would be full couplings
