Default Is this a good brew kettle?

Came across this kettle on amazon. Looks like a pretty good deal. Anyone have experience with it?

Yes it is good. Do they have a 20 gallon? I'd go bigger but that is a good price.

I have the same kettles for my whole system. They are update international with a hole drilled and a weld less fitting. I did mine myself for less than half the cost. Instawares has the update stainless steel stock pots. Check them out.

That links to a mash tun, actually a really good deal considering the false bottom is included... but, not sure why you couldn't use it for a brew kettle as well....

If there is a false bottom included, that's a Great deal.

Yes that price includes a false bottom. How sturdy are these things made? Do they have solid handles? I think I'm going to purchase one if it's going to last a while.

Is there a huge difference between a mash tun and a brew kettle? I would think having a mash tun as a brew kettle would be more versatile.
