There's 2 couplers, not one. Horizontal and vertical is just how they are mounted in relation to each other - on top of each other or next to each other

We don't have any 13gal horizontals left, just a handful of verticals.

Ha beefy, I like it.

You wouldn't believe how many times per day I get someone telling me that 1mm is "so thin". They tell me about the 4mm kettle they found. I need to explain how that's Al and will dent even if you look at it wrong, compared to the SS which is "beefy"!!

/rant

Happy Brewing!!

question:

What type of dip tube can I order for this kettle? Or should I go with a diptube and false bottom?

Wonderful kettle!

I am glad I ordered this one, it can fit on my stove (natural gas).. I haven't found a plumber to route a gas line to my garage yet.

Dumb question- you have two holes in them? Or are the holes plugged? I want to add a ball valve but not a thermometer. I can't "see" what they would be like without the thermometer in the picture.

Dip tubes and false bottoms are on my list of things to put together. A Bazooka screen would work well. Jay at NorCal also has many false bottoms.

I have kettles with 1 and 2 holes. The 20 and 25gal kettles all have 2 holes but could be plugged with a SS plug for ~$4.

a 15 inch splatter screen ontop of the steamer sounds like a win!
