Does anyone have a 9 gallon SS kettle from adventures in homebrewing? They are on sale today and was thinking of buying one. Just wanted to get some input before I did

Ditto. Inquiring minds want to know.

Just got my 9 gallon 1 weld in the mail today...seems perfectly fine to me. Looks clean, not banged up or anything.

Does the coupling go all the way through to the inside of the pot? I want to make sure I can add a hop screen eventually.

Tonight 11:59PM EST

Any idea how much the one welds usually are? I looked at it last night but I was a few pints into the night and I forget how much they were. I was comparing prices to the two weld on morebeer that's 89 but free shipping.

No it's flat inside, if that's what you're asking :/

Sorry, I didn't use my words very well when I asked that. I'm just looking for the threads of the coupling to be accessible on the inside so something could be screwed into them. Be it a hop screen or pickup for a false bottom. Flat is cool as long as the inside opening isn't smaller than the inner diameter of the coupling. I'm assuming they drill hole just large enough to fit the coupling, then only insert it enough to clear the inside of the kettle wall.

I hear you. I'm not home right now, I'll try and get that info for you before the end of the sale.
