Default Brew Kettles and water heaters

Hi all
just wanted your opinions on if these will do the job for a brew kettle and a pot to heat up the water in for the mash tun.

Cheers

Well, they're only 6 gallons, which is really too small even for 5 gallon batches. Otherwise, it seems like they would do. I'd get two of the ones with spigots, myself.

But really, I'd recommend getting some kegs and converting them so you aren't restricted to 4 gallons or so. Or check ebay for cheap stainless kettles. The spring lids on those boxes won't be particularly helpful, though the spigot is a must.

Cheers!
