Hi John; is that just the 14g or will that be on the 7.3g also? If not, why would it make sense for one but not the other? Trub volume?

In short, yes.

What's the gauge on the walls of the 20 gal brew kettles/MLTs and the conicals?

And how well do the whirlpool brew kettles work? I know the "big boys" use whirlpool tanks, but that's 1000s of gallons vs. 8-20 gallons.

Y'know, I may have to place an order when Uncle Sam finally sends me back to the States as these seem like a decent alternative to keggles - 20 gallon vessels vs. 15.5 (so you can fill and serve in the Sankeys, maybe?), and a more flexible vendor than the one associated with "bling".

I have one of the 7 gallon ones and will soon be ordering another. in my top 5 brewing gadgets. I no-chill in mine and also bottle from it. Heck if I could figure out a way to mash and boil in it I'd never move wort again

I just ordered a 20 Gal Boil Kettle from John, and I have to say that I was quite impressed with his customer service. I ordered the pot with sight glass, tangential inlet with custom T.C. 1/2" female NPT for my quick disconnects. Once the pot is ready and I have given it a test run, I will post a review.
