We're looking to expand out kettle selection and we have some new kettles in that we'd like to get out in the field.

We're looking for 4 users from HBT to do some brews with them and then write a review on them. We'll be selling them but at an extremely reduced rate. All 4 kettles come with lid and 2 1/2" NPT fittings that have been TIG welded in. Here's what we have and the price:

15 gallon stainless tri-bottom kettle - $150 shipped
10 gallon stainless tri-bottom kettle - $120 shipped
15 gallon aluminum kettle - $100 shipped
10 gallon aluminum kettle - $80 shipped

We are only selling 1 of each kettle size. We're looking for more of a 'senior' poster with brewing experience. Please post if you're interested.

Thanks,
Ben

The 10gal stainless is 12" tall and 16" wide. The 10gal Al is 16" tall and 14" wide.

Hey Spike,
I am looking for a 20-25 gallon kettle in which to install a 5500w element. It will be used for the boil. Any chance of that? I have been brewing since 2007, currently I have a kettle similar to a Penrose, but am looking for a larger size.

I will test your 15 gallon SS kettle if you like. I am an accomplished brewer with both pro and home experience and a masters degree in Chemical Engineering. Ask ApexBrewWares Jeremy if you would like a reference, as he has sampled my pro brew recently. I would be glad to give feedback and post as needed.

I really wish I had an extra 150 for that 15gal ss. I would love a new kettle that has all the hard work done for me.

For an electric kettle I would recommend my single layer kettle. I'm working on the electric kettle. It's a little ways off in the future at the moment though.

You're second in line at the moment but it looks like A4J will be testing the 15gal SS. I still have the other 3 unaccounted for.
