We took our MoreBeer! Heavy Duty Brew Kettles and had two 1/2" threaded couplers welded to them, plus an extra coupler for the addition of a sight gauge! This is one Hot Liquor Tank that can withstand any brew day - check out these features! They Will Last a Lifetime! Constructed from durable, long-lasting stainless steel, these kettles are virtually dent proof. Over the years, we have heard countless stories from brewers who have ruined their thin-walled kettles by dropping and denting them. This is no longer an issue with these beefy, super-thick kettles. Tri-Clad Bottom Our kettles are built with a tri-clad bottom featuring an aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. Aluminum allows for even heat distribution while the food-grade stainless steel is the only metal in contact with your wort. Even heat distribution eliminates hot spots, which prevents scorching of your malt and makes cleanup a breeze! Seamless - Made from a single piece of metal Our kettles are drawn, meaning the kettle is made from one piece of stainless steel. No welded seams. Heavy Duty Handles! The handles on these kettles are just as heavy duty as the rest of the kettle. This is because they are made from rolled stainless steel, which is strong and easy on your hands. Feature a thermometer and a unique glass sight gauge. The sight gauge is made from 1/2? glass tubing sheathed in a protective chrome plated metal shield. It is mounted separately from the spigot so that you can still get an accurate reading while fluid is flowing through your outlet valve.
