Default No Frills SS 10 gallon pot

Im in the market for a new kettle. Ive had a cheap 10 gallon SS pot i got from downtown LA for about a year now and an attached bottom later is warping strangely during the heat/cool cycles it experiences.

I want a solid, no frills stainless 40qt/10gal brew pot. I can make all the upgrades and fittings myself. Any recommendations?

I have an aluminum 80 qt pot made by the same folks. Quality brewpot for what I needed. I have had it for several years now.

That looks a lot like the 15 gallon Concord pot I just got. If that is the case, very nice for the price. It's not a blichmann, but it is certainly nice.

I bought a 10 gallon kettle from Spike Brewing with the valve. Love it. Good price too.

The pots Ajgeo was talking about, I just ordered with that same seller. He worked with me to ship a 50qt and a 60qt together to save me some money on shipping. I'm supposed to get them in the 15th, I'll let you know how they look.

Got my pots in today and all I can say is Wow. I got a 50qt and 60qt from stereo345 for $170. These pots are thick, heavy and look great. I highly recommend them. If you have any questions he is pretty quick to answer.
