what do you guys think of this kit...
http://www.midwestsupplies.com/15-ga...ettle-kit.html

i was wondering if i could use the hot water tank to heat the water then transfer it to the mash tun and then transfer it back to the hot water tank again to do my final boil and hop additions.
is this possible? is it common? any suggestions...

I guess this is a pretty nice kit if...

- you want mega-high quality
- money is not an object

You can piece this together for way less $$ by using kegs and stainless braid instead of a false bottom. I think I put mine together for around $150, and that included buying an angle grinder to cut the tops off the kegs. The standard keg size is 15.5 gal. If you shop around, you can find them, though it may take some effort. There are several homebrew clubs in AZ, so I assume the source of equipment is plentiful.

I'm sure you can boil in that pot, so that isn't a problem.

Of course, if you have the $$, buy it and enjoy!

Holy crap! That is some price. That will work for what you want, if you want to drop that kind of coin on it. But seeing as you are THE Professor, I think you can. Either that or you just like making light of the disabled, or you really like the guy, or it's your name. And if it's the latter just pray that you have nice friends.
