So I purchased a kettle when Spike Brewing had a deal on the vendor showcase a few weeks back. I just wanted to share that I could be more happy with my purchase and if anyone is looking to buy or upgrade then you should check out their website spikebrewing.com. Ben the owner is really helpful with any questions you might have and he is quick with to reply.

I just got the 10 gallon kettle with 1 port as this is my first all grain kettle, now I wish I would have purchased one with 2 or even 3 ports (One port for the temp. reading and one for a site glass). Oh well live and learn. Maybe I'll contact them and see if I can send mine back in the future when I'm ready to add on.
Anyway, if anyone else has a Spike kettle, feel free to chime in here.

Cheers!!!

Northern Brewer's Pro-Series Hope & King Scotch Ale (from Town Hall Brewery)

Unfortunately, my dad bought the ingredients so I won't get to drink all the results.

That'll work. There will be many more beers brewed in the kettle. I just did a breakfast stout the other week and now think I'll do a ESB for the wife this weekend. Either way Spike kettles are awesome and well worth the wait and price.

I just ordered my 15-gallon - the 10-gallon looks gigantic. I can't imagine how large the 15 is gonna seem.

I use a metal yardstick, in my 20 qt and 30 qt pots 2" = 1 gallon. I still have to measure off my 40 qt pot.

No Problem....the kettle doesn't have gallon marks inside, but I found this link awhile back for measuring:
