alright, bought it this morning. its $133 with shipping. wifes gonna kill me. Ugh I hate ebay though. this was my first time buying from it. Love amazon but just don't trust ebay. have this nervous feeling, just hope i didn't get ripped off. I'll keep it update in case anyones interested if it worked out or not


ps- is that ok that I said wife instead of swmbo?... not to knock the site but I just can't seem to get behind that terminology

The pot should work fine. It is not "extra thick" as it says though. It's slightly thinner than a comparable megapot, and doesn't appear to have the 5 mm aluminum layer at the bottle.

However, it looks the same as the one my friend bought. It does the job. You won't want to lift it when it's full of wort though. You will need to pump out of that thing.

how would I go about adding a site gauge for this?...

also would the weldless fittings work for this? I'll prob have a friend who's a welder add welded fittings but just out of curiosity/keeping my options open
Just wondering b/c I imagine most of them are used for smaller applications and not sure if they can handle the higher pressure from having a bigger volume of liquid?

Some good sight glass stuff at Bobby's.

From the specs that's a .039 wall. If you go with welded fittings be sure the guy is good. Pretty easy to burn through.

I went weldless with a large washer to spread out the load.
