hey home brewers-
I am considering upgrading from my pretty standard 5gal SS kettle to this pretty nifty 9gal SS:
Amazon.com: Bayou Classic 1036, 36-Qt. Stainless Fryer/Steamer with Vented Lid: Patio, Lawn & Garden
It looks like a pretty decent value, holds almost twice the volume of my current kettle, I can upgrade it with some brew fittings (ball valve and thermometer) and I can start doing full boils
. The only drawback (maybe it's not) is that it is 0.8mm, which seems thin, but it is a 20 gauge kettle.
Anyway, just want to get some thoughts on the quality of this brand and if anyone has ever used it and any reccomendations/opinions.
