Default 60 gallon Groen steam kettle $375

SOLD SOLD SOLD!!!!!


PRICE DROP $375

cutting the price by over half. it needs to go now!

I bought this thinking I could use it but it is just more than what I need. This is a Groen DLT-60 steam kettle. It is a 60 gallon steam kettle with a steam jacket covering the lower 2/3's of the kettle. These were originally used in line with a steam source. Steam would be pumped into the steam jacket allowing the food, soup or wort to be brought to your desirable temperature.

My idea was to utilize a hot water heater to circulate coolant or glycol into the jacket to control the temperature of my wort. I also kicked around the idea of filling the jacket with coolant and utilizing a large burner under the kettle. The coolant would act as a liquid insulant. When I was finished heating my wort I would drain off the coolant and begin circulating water through the jacket and through a chiller to quickly cool my wort.

Needless to say, this thing is just more than what I need. I really want to sell this and get a brew kettle that is more realistic for me. The kettle is in EXCELLENT shape along with the lid that covers the top of the kettle (not pictured). This is a tipping unit. The crank wheel on the left side allows you to 'tip' the kettle all the way on it's side to drain off whatever the content may be. There is also a drain at the bottom of the kettle that can be used to drain its contents. Additionally, there is a drain in the bottom of the steam jacket allowing you to drain whatever you use to circulate through the jacket.

This thing is a tank weighing in close to 200 pounds. It could easily be secured to a pallet of some sort, then wheels added to the pallet making it very mobile.

I see these models going to $1500 on ebay. I flat out am not going to ask that for this unit. I know there is someone out there that can benefit from this kettle in a big way and really all i need is a good kettle myself. With that being said I am going to price this at $750. It is in excellent condition, comes with kettle lid, has multiple drain valves and is a tip-able model. I will entertain offers, just know I won't give it away because I can most certainly find a use for it.

I am located in central Illinois. I would be willing to travel to deliver however please understand that there will be a fee for delivery to compensate for my mileage, fuel and time.

Dimensions are roughly 45x45x45. I over measured by a hair just be sure I didn't under measure.
