Go with welded fittings! I have a couple kettles with weldless and they are a PITA. They will leak over time and if you put any stress on them, they warp (Like trying to hang a pump) That would likely not happen a keggle but almost all the pots are too light weight. One of the reasons I like Stout Conicals is they have welded fittings. If I was going to order one I would get the 15 gallon with Tangential Inlet and a sight glass. I would also go with the electric TC fitting just in case I ever wanted go that way in the future. I would also get TC Themowell (A Tri Clamp fitting that you can put a seperate thermowell in. That would allow you to put in a TC Sensor directly into the kettle.)

I have a thread "If I knew then what I know now" that you should look at

I'm interested in your feedback.
The 25g and 45g ones have caught my eye for my e-HERMS build that I'll be progressively doing over the next few months.
