I was wondering if anyone has actually filled it up with 20 gal of liquid, rather than just doing the math for a cylinder.

edit: when I re-read my post it sounds like I'm coming off like a jerk, that is not my intention!

Nah...not at all. Using the OP's measurements, the kettle is 18.22 gal. The maths don't lie...and if glazarou can measure .75mm, I trust the 17 1/2" x 17 1/2" is reasonable as well.
Thanks!

I have not filled it yet. My goal was to be able to do 10 gallon batches, maybe 15, but we will see.

For my inargural batch I am going to brew a 10 gallon IPA, put 5 gallons into the fermenter, then start the boil again and add LME and hops to make a DIPA. If anyone knows why this might be a bad idea I am all ears.

Wilserbrewer, I appreciate your faith in my measuring ability. Currently trying to sell my blueberry farmer brother on your bags to use in the process of making jelly.

Pretty nice. Going to drill it and put a valve on next week.

I don't work for or with the company that sells them.

Thanks for this link. I've been wanting to buy equipment for all grain. Want to do five to 15 gallon batches. Pulled the trigger on 2 of the 80qts. for HLT and MLT and 1 - 110 qt. for BK. Awesome deal! Next purchase will be fittings/site glasses/valves and thermometers.

This is approximate, but I get 0.75 mm, which puts it in between 22 and 23 gauge steel.

I will be able to get a better measurement when I drill the side for the valve next week.
According to Blichmann's website theirs are 18 gauge...

I had to look it up since I was not familiar with using gauge as a measurement. so this is a bit thinner...

I hope you update this, and the rest of you, with your progress...

The 110 quart interests me... of course that means I would have to replace all my fermenters... HA!

Yeah, same here with my three, but yesterday two of them were ready to ship. Still patiently waiting, just a little disgruntled with the changing story.

This looks a lot like the Concord pot I got on Amazon. It was listed at 20gal but measured out to about 18-18.5 gal, apparently it was some sort of manufacturing error. Naturally I was a bit miffed so Concord dropped 15% off the price making it about $100 shipped. I wonder if these pots are from the same lot, the lid that's pictured is exactly the same. The quality of the pot is fantastic, zero complaints there.

Great find, wish I had seen this before I ordered. Definitely the best price on an 18ish gal SS pot you'll find anywhere by a mile.

Same factory more than likely but someone measured that it's only .75mm thick; 'Concord' is 1mm. It's thin but a weldless fitting will work. Welding won't be an option on something that thin. The handles on that are also attached cheaply. A couple spot welds won't hold up to 10gal of wort.
