Description

Designed for Brewing. Built to Last.  The new line of BrewBuilt brew 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.  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 brew 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 we all can dream up.  

This Brew 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.  The 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.  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 so handy...  you 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.  That 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.  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. 

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.  We 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.  

Unique 22 Gallon Size
This size was born from customer feedback. Many customers making 10 gallons actually want to end up with 10 gallons at the end of kegging. That means you can be starting a boil with 13-14 gallons of wort to account for boil off, kettle loss, and fermenter loss. The 22 Gallon size kettle allows you to boil those quantities with plenty of room for boil overs. Want to make a 15 gallon batch with friends... you can squeeze that in to! You'll never regret having a little extra kettle.

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. Remember,  if you order from MoreBeer! we ship free anywhere in the continental USA!

Does the port for the thermometer also have internal threads?
STEPHEN PACE on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the 10 gal. Brew Built with the welded ports for ball valve and thermometer, and both have threads that carry through to the inside of the kettle. Great kettle by the way. Hope this helps. Tom.
Seems like contradictory information on suitability for induction burners? The product description says it's perfect for induction, but the feedback to one review says 304 stainless is non magnetic.
Frank on Apr 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have two Brewbuilt kettles, a 15 gallon and a 22 gallon, both of which I use on my 3500 watt induction burner. The morebeer heavy duty kettles also work on induction burners.
What height/volume level is the thermometer at on the 22-gallon Brewbuilt Kettle?
John Hayes on May 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The thermometer probe is 6" on center measured from the interior base of the kettle, approximately 6 3/4 Gal. on the liquid level.

Works good, I like the laminated bottom!
This large pot works great on my propane floor-model cook stand. I made a screen out of perforated stainless steel to fit over a fairly large area of the outlet valve, so as to keep the spent hops from going into the fermenting container.

Excellent Pots for Mash AND Kettle
I have the 22GAL for Mashing with the BB false bottom, and the 30 GAL for a Kettle. These are the best pots for the $$, solid steel, welded fittings. As for the review about the outlet being too high, they just need a Maximizer (AG519 or AG516) / pick up tube to get closer to the bottom. The outlet needs to be above the bottom or the valve / etc are too close to the fire, also it allows the false bottom (the BB false bottom kits with silicone gasket and the quick disconnect internally are the best out there) to be placed below with the pickup tube running to the center of the false bottom. The welded fittings are a must for any pots I buy anymore. The weldless fittings wore me out.
