Hello everybody. Looking below my avatar, yes you can see I'm relatively new here. Speaking of my avatar, yes it's my 60 liter aluminum kettle. I've been using a 20 liter kettle up until now and bought the 60 liter to upgrade to AG. It's 42 cm diameter and 60 cm tall. Works great for boils of anything from 15 liters up to 45 liters. The only thing to worry about with aluminum is nicking it which will start eroding it. It's not much of a worry with my 60 liter put because it's 8mm thick and not a polished surface. My 20 liter kettle is polished and only 3 or 4 mm thick, which is highly susceptible to pockmarking. Found out the hard way with my first 20 liter kettle. It lasted all of 2 months before it started leaking. Of course here in Japan these kettles are expensive whether they're aluminum or SS.
