The 1" couplers just got in today. They need to machined to the straight thread. The machinist is finishing up the tooling for the welding. I'll get on him and hopefully it'll be done by the weekend.

Will you offer just the coupler as well for those of us that want to add it to our kettle?

We don't like dealing with small hardware items so we'll only be selling it as an add on to our kettles.

Tooling is done for welding

All we have left to do is do some practice welds and make sure everything is G2G.

We'll probably start offering them next week. Thanks for the patience guys!

Perfect timing on this, I'm looking into switching over to electric... I would normally never have considered a welded option, I'm a weldless fan all the way, as I'm a cheapskate and like things I know how to take apart and put back together -- but hey, the heater element is one place where I could absolutely see the benefit in having a sure-fire seal, so I'll consider it. (Take that w/ a grain of salt, as I'm an aluminum guy too, same reason, cheap & easier to drill than SS!) Looking forward to more info after your test welds are done.

SpikeBrewing - Can you give a little more info about your pots. Type and guage of SS, dimensions per pot size, is the bottom triple clad if so what material is sandwich between the SS.

All the specifics on our pots can be seen on our website (www.spikebrewing.com). The kettles are made from 1mm thick stainless or about 19 gauge. They are all single layer kettles.

I brewed my first batch in my new spike brew kettle. I had no burning to the bottom. The weld and very nicely done and the couplings are threaded perfectly and heavy duty. I dud 2 vertical with the optional sight glass coupler. Very satisfied with my purchase. The handles are very sturdy. Thank you Spike Brewing, look forward to adding the 1" coupling for my future electric conversion.
