So I need a better kettle. I have been thinking about either a 10 gallon mega-pot from Northern Brewer, or a Blichmann 10 gallon kettle. A keggle would be fine but I don't know much about cost and conversion/installation of ball valve, thermometer ect.... My question here is directed to those who would be so kind as to give opinions and hopefully advantages and disadvantages they may have run in to with their own kettles. Basically, I really only need a 10 gallon kettle. I would like to be able to draw from the ball valve because my pump is not self-priming so it would be great to simply gravity feed into the pump then let the pump do it's thing. Second, I would like to be able to leave all the hops and trub in the kettle(not the biggest deal I realize but it would be nice), so any advice about false bottoms for kettles or those screen/mesh tubes that screw into the inside of the ball valve, or any other methods(whirlpooling ect..) that work for you. Thanks for reading this long post
and for your answers/advice.
