This is the problem here with us, Kegs are realy scares, and they are on the stock of all the major beer brewing company's, so they are not that willing to let a homebrewer buy it, because it damage there sales.

If I powder-coat the Aluminum pots ( take note OneHoppyGuy) will it do the job?

This is exactly the type of structure I'm looking to add to my setup. Nicely done. Too bad they don't sell these.

Ditto... powder coating typically has a minimum charge here in the states of about $150
I'm not too sure I would want to cook in a powder coated pot. You definitely can't put it on a burner.

Stainless really is the best choice. The money you save going with aluminum is made up by the various downsides (let the fray begin). Ask yourself: Is it really that big a price difference to buy something that will last 100 years?

We got a high end stainless cookware set for a wedding gift. With 26 years of heavy use they are still as solid and shiny. They will outlast my grand kids.
Oh, and as a trained chef, I firmly believe a sandwiched bottom is superior.

Okay, off my soap box... we return you to your regularly scheduled thread.

Some copper is beneficial to the yeast when fermenting. I've seen some brewers add a bar of copper into their 100% stainless kettle setups when boiling but I doubt it really makes that much of a difference.

Historically kettles were copper because copper's a metal that humans knew how to work long before there was stainless steel or aluminum.

In the UK they often call boil kettles "coppers" for this reason. Even if they're no longer copper.
