A Great Boil Kettle
Finally! I finally have a kettle that I can boil my typical 7+ gal. of mash. Trying to boil 7+ gal. in an 8 gal. kettle leads to the boil over blues in a hurry. Best yet, AIH had this on sale.
I was also able to move my 8 gal. kettle up to be an HLT, replacing the 5 gal. kettle I had before. I finally have enough sparge water.
If you brew 5 gal. all grain batches like I do, this is the kettle you need. I do have one very minor gripe. I think the bottom coupling is placed just a hair too low. Even a half inch higher would be better. Yes, I have thought about a kettle screen. But it is not really an option if you use an immersion chiller. You will soon squish the screen. But this is a very minor complaint.
AIH is my go to store for brewing equipment. A great Kettle at a great price.
