Nah, I use a stainless steel yard stick. I can tell how many inches are in the kettle and convert to gallons real easy. I do have a sight glass on my HLT. I can quickly look to see how much is left in it while sparging and not having to take the lid off. Keeps it from losing heat. And since it's only water in the HLT, I don't have to clean it.

Dude, my whole 3rd bay of my garage is a giant brewery. I got plenty of unnecessary bling. I just don't want something that serves a limited purpose and will need to be cleaned and can easily break while cleaning it. I'm not saying other people shoudn't have one, just that it would be nice if it was an option and not a standard item.

They are right here.

You have to look all the way to the right and it gives you height and diameter.

Doh. Sorry about that. Firefox didn't render the page.

Does anyone else find it scary that they have little girls posing in boiling kettles?
