Interest in 45gal kettle?
 
We can now get our hands on a very nice 45gal kettle in the same style as our other kettles. We will be offering the 45gal kettle with 3 welded 1/2" NPT couplers (valve, thermo, sightglass) and lid for around $650 shipped. The more or less couplers you need will affect the price as well.

If interested email or PM me :mug:

Dang thats nice.. Do you happen to have the dimensions handy?

That is a mighty fine kettle there. :D

I bet I can't pick it up when full with those flimsy handles...

Trying to picture how many fermenters I would have to have lined up and ready after brewing in a 45 gallon kettle.... :)

Have you considered welding tri clover fittings on the bigger kettles?

I have been looking for a kettle around this size, but $650!? That is quite a markup for three welded couplers. A 55 gallon blichmann can be had for less.

Wow now that's a kettle. I'm picturing that scene in crocodile dundee where he says 'that's not a knoif, THIS is a knoif!'.

It's been discussed. We're looking into what the demand is.

I have that eBay kettle sitting in my shop. It's very thin and the lid doesn't fit because the kettle isn't close to being round.

We just got this in yesterday so the price isn't locked down but it is ball park. I don't want to get into the welded vs weldless debate but there is a reason we only offer welded and it does cost more than punching a hole and sticking a valve through it. It's up to the customer to decide if the extra value is worth it. I would also double check on that kettle. It's under Blichmann's MSRP and includes shipping. We've priced shipping out at around $120/kettle so I wouldn't be surprised if that's a mistake.
