Description

Designed for Brewing. Built to Last.  Our standard kettle line, 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.  As 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.  The second unique feature that we absolutely love about these kettles is the notched lid with silicone plug.  This 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 you think up.  

Feature Rich
Internal volume markers from the bottom to the top  are very convenient for instant reads.  The silicone sleeved handles on the kettle and the lid are a great 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.  The bottom coupler is also cool with 1/2" male threads on the outside and 1/2'' female threads on the inside.  Those internal threads are super handy for installing a pick up tube, stainless quick disconnects, a kettle screen, or any other fitting that features 1/2" MPT threads.  

Thick 304 Stainless For a Lifetime of Use
These kettles are made from 304 grade stainless.  That means you will have less corrosion issues than with a kettle made from lower grade 201 type stainless.  The riveted handles are also made of stainless steel for a long term, trouble free life and will never break off like a welded handle.  The 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. 

Industry Standard 1.2:1 Ratio
All the Brewbuilt kettles follow the 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 brewing to achieve a more consistent 10% evaporation rate during the boil.
