I would be interested in both the kettle and false bottom if the above two don't bite. Of course, depending on price!

Would be interested in both. Been saving for a 20 gallon, but that would work.

That's a huge difference in size.

Yes, it is. My wife is in her last year of an electrical engineering degree and needed a project. So I jumped at the chance to have her build me an all electric, automated brew rig. (I know, I'm a lucky guy). Anyways, I have two keggles right now and was needing a third for the mash tun. With all the overtime at work, I had her talked into the 20 and a false bottom. Been keeping an eye out for a used one for a while, and just about given up when I saw this thread. It should work ok for 10 gallon batches, shouldn't it? I mean I see 10 gallon Gott coolers on here all the time being used for ten gallon batches. Tell me if I'm wrong, or will I be disappointed by not holding out for the 20?

I mash 10 gallon batches in my 10 gallon cooler, but 1.050 is about the biggest 10 gallon batch I can make. I would hold out for a 20 gallon or at least a 15. Sorry if I have interfered with the sale but I would hate for you to be disappointed, and it seems like there is plenty of other interest

Wow, thanks for the info wncbrewer. Stouts and Porters are my favorite styles, so a ten gallon would almost restrict me to 5 gallon batches. Just looking to move to all grain and getting so antsy, but I don't want to settle. Anteater looks to be a lot closer to you anyways, so its fine with me if he buys it. Sorry for the run around Eastoak, and thanks to everyone for the advice.
