Default Finding large brewing pots

I have been searching on the internet for large brewing kettles and find almost nothing. I would like to know if there are 50 to 60 gallon stainless brewpots available? For me this would be an ideal size. I found 55 gallon stainless barrels but they have rolled seams and I want a sanitary kettle. Any ideas?

why the concern about the rolled seams? As long as your fermentation is sanitary, previous to that is not a huge concern

The pot and it's ingredients will most likely be boiled and those temps will kill the bad stuff.

I agree... You boil it for an hour or more so no need.

I'm with the other guys. Sanitation is not necessary till after the boil is finished. 212F for an hour will kill anything that could cause a problem.

pretty much every big kettle i've seen in that size was originally a 55 gallon SS drum

support it well and it'd work like a dream
