This is perfect for 5g batches. Your always going to want a bigger setup, from experience go with a 15g pot/keggle. It's not to big for 5g batches and you can do 10g when your ready for it.

+1 I'm looking to convert a keg in the near future. I bought this knowing that it will do double duty as a kettle for 5 gallon batches and a HLT for larger.

Has anyone taken advantage of the Free Shipping option the guy offers on ebay? I emailed him to ask about it. He said if i pay with a check that he would ship for free, because it saves him on PayPal fees.

To me that sounded sketchy, because he is throwing in $10.69 shipping for free, and barely saving $1 on PayPal fees. Sounds like a very bad deal for him, so i wondered why he would do it. i noticed that you are not covered under ebay's buyer protection if you pay with a check, so i was a little concerned about doing that.

Paypal and the IRS are now buddies since Jan 1st...

I sent him a check. His ebay rating is through the roof and he gave me his home address to send it to.

OK thanks. Could you post an update when you receive yours, BOR?

I was also curious about size. By my calcs, if it's 12" (not 12' !) across, it should be 18.5 inches high. That sound right?

That sounds right. He is very patient with buyers. You can just email him and he'll give you the dimensions. Send me a PM in a few weeks if I flake out and forget to post the results.

I pulled the trigger on one of these yesterday, however when I tried to pay on Ebay I kept getting a message saying they can't accept payments to the sellers merchant account and to contact the seller.

I emailed the seller and was told his merchant account was down and if I would like to send a check or money order directly to him then I would receive free shipping for my trouble. That sounded very funny to me since I would no longer get protection from Ebay for the sale so I told the seller that I would wait until his merchant account was back up and pay through Ebay.

Just got an email back and he says he will cancel the purchase on ebay and save it for me until his account is back up, at which point I'll have to purchase the auction again and then checkout via Ebay.

I'm still hoping to get this but chances don't look to good that I will actually end up being able to purchase the brewpot. If I were you I would stay away from this guy because he still has the auction up even though he knows that you can't pay for it through Ebay because his merchant account is down.

I sent him an email about the hole size...7/8" is the only way to get it. Can't get it without a hike or different size. I want to use a sight glass thermometer combo that's 9/16".

What hole? The hole for the ball valve or the port above it for a thermometer?
