They have some nice features, but are not customizable. I emailed Blichmann to find out if you could get one with out the sight glass and you can't. I don't see a need for a sight glass on a boil kettle or a MLT. One more thing to clean or break. When I upgrade my boil kettle to 20 gallons, I think I'll go with the new kettles at Morebeer and have them weld a diverter plate in.

I agree with you on not needing a sight glass on a MLT, but on a boil kettle? Isn't that when you would MOST want one, so that you know what volume you've boiled down to?

I've got a weldless one that I've been meaning to install on the keg, but alas.... I'm lazy ;)

Very nice.

But for the money, I'll stick with my hack job converted sankes, thank you.

As for the sight guage on the MLT and kettle. The jury is out for me.

Damn, I just bought three kettles, and now I hear about these things. They look amazing. The feature set is perfect. I don't think $350.00 for a 15 gallon kettle outfitted like this is outrageous; they're not cheap, but not that much more than an Italian kettle with similar fittings.

You just have no respect for unnecessary bling and that's just wrong. Seriously though, it's another greatly debated topic. I really enjoy the sight on my BK.

For that price they really should have an aluminum clad disc in the bottom.
