Wish I had seen this before ordering. Oh well. I'm looking forward to getting it. I'll let everyone know what I think once I've brewed a batch or two in it.

Are these the regular prices? Or sale prices?

I'm looking at going electric and I'd love to stay with everything welded.
I've been looking into that for awhile now. The main problem is that water heater elements are straight threaded and nobody makes a 1" straight thread coupler; everything is tapered. So to answer you're question at the moment no I can't.

P.S I love Wisconsin too

Haven't guys had success using a 1" half coupler for the elements?
Might be a little more tricky for welding though, smaller fitting to work with.

Spike,

Have you looked at using a 1" nut instead of the half coupler? I see that it's been done here. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f170/sol...ctures-207317/

I have seen that and it's great for a back yard set up. I don't know if I'd feel comfortable with that. I'd really like to find a 1" NPS coupler though.

How much to add aditional couplers in different spots say for a recirc or whirlpool, or herms. Also price and shipping breaks if someone orders more than one pot? Say 3?

Last question: how closely does the steamer fit into the bottom if you were to use it as the foundation of a false bottom?

$15/ coupler and I can work out shipping breaks if you would buy 3. The false bottom fits pretty tightly around the diameter of the kettle and sits about 2.5" from the bottom. I've had customers lay a stainless screen over it and use it as a false bottom with great results.

I can get you the coupler to weld in if you want. I am sure you can do it. It doesn't have to be straight taper, with the ring, it is sealed quite well. Keep the heat on the fitting, for awhile, no secrets. Heat the mass, and then get the kettle to join. No big deal.

Spike,

Are these kettles covered by any kind of warranty?
