Default For Sale - 30 Gallon Stainless Fermentor (or Awesome Boil Kettle)

I am testing the waters to see if anyone would be interested in a 30 gallon Vulcan-Hart Stainless Jacketed Steam Kettle. We are moving some things out of a kitchen at one of the restaurants I work with, and this has not been used since they bought the place.

This has a hookup for gas and will require electricity to be used as a boil kettle. It puts out 78000 BTUs in addition to 360* steam coverage if that feature were to be utilized (it will boil 30 gallons of water or wort very quickly and efficiently) but it also has a sloped bottom and a release valve, making it an incredible fermenter as well.

This is a picture of the same model unit, but I won't be able to post any actual pics til Wednesday.






These things are over 4-5k new, but this unit is 35 years old, so let's figure $800.00.

You may want to post the power requirements, dunno if that would run on a residential circuit.

Does 360 degree steam coverage mean you can't open it up during the boil?

No, you can open it. The walls of the kettle are jacketed and insulated by steam. The walls are about 1 1/4" thick and are hollow in the middle for the steam

Requires low pressure NG, I assume?

Yes, I think it said rated up to 12 psi, it could probably be retrofit for other heat application to run off propane though

Also, I'm willing to transport this for $2.00 per mile from 29607. I'm not sure how much it weighs, but its not real light.
