This 10 Gallon AMCYL Brew Kettle offers the features you need at a price that is hard to beat! The body is 18 gauge, 304 stainless steel with a tri-clad bottom to give you even heat distribution and prevent scorching your grains! It also features two pre-drilled ports, one for the weldless, three part valve assembly and the other for accessories like our available 2" and 6" large gauge thermometers. The stainless steel valve is included and has a 1/2" NPT internally so you can add a bazooka screen or other accessories directly.
When you receive the kettle you will need to install the valve on the bottom port and either a plug or thermometer in the upper port. See easy to follow instructions here. The three piece valve allows for total disassembly and cleaning for better sanitary practices. Here are some additional features and a recap of features mentioned above:
- 18 gauge, 304 stainless steel construction
- Tri-clad bottom features:
- bottom layer of 304 stainless steel
- middle layer of aluminum for better heating characteristics, but no wort contact
- Inner layer of 304 stainless steel for safe contact with your wort!
- Silicone handle covers on side and lid handles eliminates the need for slippery hot pads.
- Riveted side handles for safer handling, no welds to break.
- Inner markings for 10 Gallons.
- Oversized. Sold as 10 gallon kettle, but actually holds just over 10.5 gallons.
**** Another important note: These Kettles are now stocked and shipped directly by Kegconnection, so Kegconnection's quick shipping and flat rate shipping specials apply. No extra charges for oversize!
Very nicely made pot that should last for years and produce plenty of wonderful homebrew. Pot gets 4 stars for one small grinder mark on lower edge and lid gets 3 due to the fact only one side of the handle was welded down. Super glue to the rescue.
best kettle i have. thks-cheers
I received everything listed in the description. This is a high quality, thick stainless steel. This was a great deal and I'm excited to start brewing my first batch. This kettle size is perfect for 5 gallon batches and fits with a tiny bit of clearance on my gas stove in the kitchen. They also included some surprise items in my package, which was pretty funny, with a hand written message on the invoice. This seems like a great company with quality product. I strongly recommend ordering.
The kettle arrived in excellent shape and quickly. I ordered the optional 6" thermometer to go along with it. The thermometer sits perfectly in the middle of the kettle about 1/3 of the way up. When it arrived installation of the ball valve and thermometer was very easy. Overall I'm very happy with this kettle and look forward to using it for many years to come.
Its great! Brewed my first batch with it and it performed flawlessly!
The listed brew kettle works however, be careful and make sure you test for leaks prior to actually doing a boil. Also, Stainless Steel loves to hold to heat so, make sure you have a good wort chiller ready to go.. which oddly enough, can be purchased through homebrewsupply.com
Purchased after much research and a lot of shopping around. Based on what was included and the price it was listed at I found this to be the best deal. Well I finally got to try it out and found a few issues with the kettle. First, after syphoning in my first all grain batch into the kettle I discovered that there was a leak coming from the thermometer. I thought I had tightened it to a good tightness and tested it with water but there it was leaking. Second issue: the rubber handle on the valve melted off after the first use; not a great start. Other than that I feel that this is well worth the money, however it does need some work.
Great kettle for the price. very pleased!!
Very pleased with the kettle! Pleasantly surprised that it is more heavy duty than I expected. The picture shows inside volume markings stop at 5 gallons but they do go down to 2 gallons. I also purchased the 6 inch thermometer instead of the 2 inch so it would give a better reading however, the longer thermometer does get in the way of my wort chiller. It will still fit but it takes a little work. I might get the shorter one in the future. The heat distribution is much better than my previous kettle. If you are looking for a great kettle that doesn't require a bank loan, this is it!
