This is the item I purchased, price seemed fair. Seems to look good so far. Bought this to take my brewing up a notch to full boils (extract).
Figured this wouldnt be a bad entry level larger kettle, however I am now seeing that many say it scroches easily and is poorly made?
I really don't mind it not having a spigot (I dont mind lifting it) and the thermometer doesnt really matter either as I have a good one.
Anybody have any recomendations, should I keep or or return it.
I've contemplated purchasing this http://www.birdmanbrewing.com/42-qt-...ss-ball-valve/
Or should I save up for a while and just get the blichmann 10 gallon?
Everytime I think I got it figured out, more and more questions! haha
