Thanks for the replies. I mainly prefer the idea that they have already been welded and have three ports so I wouldn't need to do much before brewing. I emailed about getting the false bottom in the kettle instead of the kettle screen and he said it was no problem. I haven't had trouble with a kettle screen in the past, but I want to use this as a kettle, and then eventually turn it into a mashtun or HLT when I get a slightly larger kettle. In the past (once I stopped doing stovetop extract) I had used keggles, but I am currently without homebrewing equipment and slowly building it back up. But I feel that my experience helps me to know what I want and I'd like to avoid any cheap purchases that I will upgrade within a few years.
Hopefully someone here has some experience with this vendor and could comment about the welds and the overall customer service. Cheers.
