Also I believe the guy that runs it is on the site. There's a longish thread with him answering questions and such.

John's easy to comunicate with and responsive.

I have a new Kettle on order with him and from prior responses posted above, and the pictures on the his web site, looks like nice stuff.

He is relatively local for me (I could drive there for cheaper than he can ship to me... but maybe I'll get in a brew rather than drive) so maybe that's just my comfort level as he is close.... within nuckle busting range:D

But realy, send him an email off his web page, get to know him and ask about his stuff. Make your own judgement.

Personally, I'm stoaked and jones'n to brew in a new kettle!!!

Now I'll see what the difference is between Aluminum Kettles and SS! :D

Cheers and happy brewing!:rockin:

That is an amazing price.

It is a very low price.

My biggest concern is the port (bore rather) size of the bottom dump port and valve. Blichmann/Morebeer use a much larger port/valve there and I've heard smaller ones often won't dump because the yeast/trub is so caked up in there.

The 14 gal conical has a bigger dump valve than the 7 gal conical; it seems the 7 gal conical dump valve is just too small but I'm just guessing, I've never used a conical. EDIT: Incorrect, they use the same size valves, still might be too small.

great guys to work with, email correspondence is great

Next time 1" valves
 
I saw your comment and have decided to make the bottom dump valve be a 1" valve (7/8" ID) going forward. They'll be available in early April. The price will be a little higher, probably around $410.

Cheers,
