I just placed my order, 121 bucks shipped with the thermometer added (and its a blichmann thermometer)... I can pick up a ball valve later down the road, untill then i will just cap it. Sweet deal, sure beats $300 on a blichmann for now.

Super stoked!!!!!!

Wow. That is pretty good!

Too bad it's small for me. I just sold my nine gallon pot and am getting a half keg/keggle. But if I were doing <5 gallon batches, I would totally go for that price.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I purchased 2, both came with 2 welded full ports! I also ordered the thermometers which are BLICHMAN fyi. Ended up also getting the falsebottom for $50 something with the kettles.

All together it was 300 shipped, cannot beat that for 2 nice SS pots with thermos, lids, FB, and 2 full welded ports in each.

I filled both and they did hold exactly 9 gallons. To the brim tho.

Lids are cheap, as they mentioned, but still not that bad really. Pots are nice looking.

Really happy with them.

I got one of this, just with the single weld. It is a good pot, a bit thin, but thicker than all I could find close to the price range.

It is a good kettle though, nice level bottom etc.

They have done this before. I got in on the order that came in January.

They get a large order, sell out, get a large order, sell out, etc..
