I am planning to make the leap to all grain and need to get a larger brew kettle for 5 gal batches. I want to get a 32-36 qt kettle with a welded fitting for a ball valve. Should I get one with a second welded fitting for a temp gage? Thanks!
I have this kettle. It's great. I went with the 2-weld and wonder how I ever brewed without a built-in thermometer. Makes hitting strike temps super easy, and watching the needle drop when chilling is fun.
Can't beat it for the price.
EDIT: I went with their generic 2" thermometer - I don't need to pay 30 bucks to have blichman tell me to sparge at 170.
