The story ends with yet another quality product which more than likely wont be used in Alaska because of shipping.

No hard feelings, we're used to it.

I understand where you're coming from. I'll do some research and see what it would cost to have the kettles shipped to AK. The thing is (from what I've seen) is that we might be able to get the kettle to AK for around $40 but it'll take 3 weeks.

Time doesn't matter to me. I work a schedule where I'm gone for 2 weeks at a time. Usually stuff is here by the time I get back.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on 3 of the 100qt pots on eBay and various fittings from bargainfittings.com. I'm right at $550 including shipping. I'll post pics when they get here. $550 for 3 100qt pots with valves (3-piece stainless) sight glasses, thermometers, a screen in my brew kettle, and lids is not a bad deal at all. More to follow. I'll be gone for 2 weeks so hopefully it'll all be here when I get back and I can't put it all together and give a review.

I bought this vendors 80 quart pot after seeing this thread. Received it yesterday and I am very happy with it. It far exceeded my expectations.

Good to know. Mine should be here this week. I'm definitely looking forward to getting them. I wanna build my eHERMS to fit the pots, so now that they're almost here, it means it's almost time to build it!!

Boomer, did you get your kettle and what did you think of it? It looks like he is selling both flat lid 100qt and stepped lid 100qt pots like the Blichmann. It's clearly different handles that the Blichmann, but looks similar:

I know that this is an old thread, but I recently purchased one of these 100 quart / 25 gallon pots from this eBay vendor. Very nice pot! The thing is a monster compared to my 15 gallon keggle, of course. $125 (w/ shipping) pot plus $95 (w/ shipping) spent on a 3-piece valve, a sight glass and a weldless bulkhead / SS dip tube from Brewhardware and I had me a nice new 25 gallon boil kettle. Now to drill the three holes needed to install the valve and sight glass...

HOLY CRAP WAS THIS THING HARD TO DRILL THROUGH! That thing I said about being worried about how thin this stainless steel was? Yeah. That's not a worry in the slightest now.

I've drilled a few holes in my SS kegs in the past, and they were pretty darn easy. But THIS pot...oh man, it did not want to give up the fight! I started out with some hardened steel drill bits to make pilot holes for my step bit, some vegetable oil for lubrication and used a variable speed drill and went slow, the same thing I used on my previous ones. I snapped three bits before I gave up and went to the hardware store and bought some cobalt steel bits and some better cutting oil. And even the cobalt steel bits took freaking FOREVER to get through! Maybe it was because Menard's sold some cheap Chinese knock-off cobalt steel bits, I don't know.

Anyway, I did finally get the pilot holes drilled, and then used the step bit to finish the holes. Thankfully the step bit didn't have to struggle much to get the holes big enough.

A couple of minutes with a round metal file, and voila, three very nice holes ready for use.

We calibrated the sight glass and found out that the pot holds about 26 gallons, not 25. Bonus!
