Default Spike Brewing Kettles

Anyone have experience with these? I found them from a local CL post. thinking about picking up a few for my future electric setup. I tend to believe a kettle is a kettle, but I welcome comments from people who bought bargain kettles.

Whoops, the search for kettle produced a million results and spike had nothing. I guess that solves it.

I ordered one last Monday, it was supposed to ship last week but didn't. I'm told it was shipped today. I'll report back after my first brew which will hopefully be end of this week.

I got the 15 gallon with 1 welded port w/ ball valve.

Cool. Thanks. If you remember can you let me know how it looks after you've received it and brewed with it? I'm pretty close to ordering one but want to make sure it's not too good to be true

I ordered one last week. Looks like it will be here tomorrow? Hope to be using it this weekend. I'll post pictures when she's fitted out.

I'm still waiting on mine, apparently it shipped today, though I received tracking info for it last Tuesday. After testing/brewing, hopefully end of this week, I'll start a thread or reply to this one.

John,

Your kettle went out today and should arrive Thursday or Friday at the latest.

I'm excited to hear some feedback The welded couplers are so much nicer than the soldered joints. They are fricken bullet proof!

Well I received my Pot (15.5 gals) last week. No problems at all with lead time or shipping delays. I ordered the check valve and thermometer with the unit along with a sight glass (from another vendor)that I installed with no problems. Brewed with it on Sunday and all went well. There were a few issues I have with this unit (melted lens to thermometer and some distortion on lid from heat) but all in all it is a great pot and would recommend to anyone looking for a large pot at a very reasonable price.

I would suggest a glass lens on the thermometers outfitted with horizontal fittings or using a heat shield when brewing. The lid is a none issue.

Thanks to Ben for the great communication and fast service
Archie
