I found the pots, but dont see any with welded threads, did I read this wrong, or did you have to weld your own? They have a killer deal on 60 quart(15gal.) pots

Im confused too! LOL I thought this thread said that a 15 gallon poy was purchases for around 100.00 I also thought that it has a welded fitting for a ball valve! I also thought it was from Wares Direct.

Ill check your site out too! 15 gallon is the way to go,

ok I see our kettle, it's a nice looking kettle, I unfortunatly cant spend 200.00 right now, your kettle is worth the money, thats actually a deal considering what fabricators charge, I have a 6.5 galon that barely works for 5 gallon batches. Ill use that untill I start 10 plus.

I am in the process of upgrading to a new kettle now. I got the update international pot and going to get tri clover fittings welded to it. Update international because of the thicker bottom. 1.2 side walls and induction ready (always a plus).
I have a brew kettle with a single layer bottom. I do not like it because its always become discolored at the bottom. Have to take bar keepers friend to remove the brown stains. this pot will become my hot water tank till I buy another update international pot.

Got to love AMZN

Your local fabricator/welder. If you brought him a pot or a keg, he may charge as much as $100-$150 to install a coupler in the pot. I know the welder we use sometimes through my machine shop goes by the name of $100/hr Ralph.

Ummm 30 is the normal rate for one weld plus drill. Find another welder. If a welder says stuff like TIG and argon gas, will be good. Show the welder of pics of welds and he or she will say yes or no on their abilities.
