So I'm looking at upgrading my 44qt SS Bayou Classic to a 15gal (60 qt) double ported welded SS kettle.
At first glance, I'm immediately looking a Spike Brewing's 15 gal setup
(valve and sight glass not included) of just what I want for only $190. This guy's a local to HBT so I figure I might give him my business, but I also am one to look around before purchasing something expensive like a new kettle. Does anyone know of any competing or better deals?
I know I can beat that with a weldless solution, but honestly, welded seems to the way to go as far as longevity, durability/strength, etc. I'm open to conversation on this topic as well.
