Default Opinion on boiling pot

I am going to get a nice polarware 40 qt pot. Does anybody know if these pots have the fittings for valve and thermo welded on, or are they drilled? (@ austin homebrew)

Also is there anywhere cheaper for a false bottom? they are selling it for 80.00 which is steep

Mine has a spigot and thermometer, but it was much cheaper than AHB's prices

Shop around. Try Midwest and Northern Brewer, and probably many other places.

Call Austin directly; that's a very simple question for them to answer.

Personally, I'd give a bazooka screen a shot before dropping that much coin on a false bottom. If I were spending that much money, I'd go for a hopstopper.
