I've been eyeing these kettles for the last two weeks or so. Once I saw the $20 off, I pulled the trigger and placed my order just a few minutes ago.

I can't wait.

Good to know. I read a thread back from Jan. and those folks had nothing but good things to say as well. I'm totally ready to stop brewing on the stove and move outside for AG brewing.

I only do 5 gallon batches. Should I get a 10 or 15 gallon? Considered the 12 gallon but wasn't sure about the thickness.

The 10 gallon kettle is recommended for 5 gallon batches.

We are discontinuing the 12gal kettles because of the thickness issue. .8mm is definitely tougher than even a 6mm aluminum kettle but we still had issues with kettles getting damaged during shipping. The 1mm kettles are a great balance between toughness and weight.

As for size... It all depends on what your future plans are. Do you plan on doing 10gal batches in the future? If so I would recommend the 15gal with horizontal fittings. It'll allow you to do small batches and allows plenty of room to grow. There is no point in buying a 10gal kettle now and then a 15gal kettle in 6 months when you get the itch to brew 10gals at a time.

I had to jump on this and get a kettle. I've been kicking myself since I missed the last group buy. It'll be a BK for now, but as soon as the electric kettles come out, I'll be converting it over to a MLT.

Thanks for the discount.

I'm looking at getting one each of the 10 gallon pots:

2 horizontal couplers with http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...&product_id=83 for HLT
2 vertical couplers for MLT
1 coupler for BK

Sound about right?
