I imagine he is proud of his kids plus, it sort of puts the scale of the kettles in perspective.

Has anyone ordered and received these kettles yet? I am going to order a 15G Mash Tun and 20G Boil Kettle. Just cant see spending that much money on an HLT just to hold water. I have a 16G SS Pot i used to use for a brew kettle, so ill use that for the HLT on my new Brutus I'm building.

The only drawback for me will be not being able to just move lids from kettle to kettle, but im going to get the valved quick connects so moving hoses wont create alot of drips and spills.

I ordered them from NB last week. I spoke to John Blichmann mid week on another matter, and he said my kettles would ship in about a week. He is getting inundated with orders and had to contract the assembly. I can't wait to see these things. The design features are amazing.

Well we have to see these things on your brew stand...chop chop.

Its been a while since i've looked at brew porn and i wont get my stand until this weekend. Then its paint and assembly time. Hopefully my kettles arent too far behind.

false alarm. just my stainless enclosure and some Westvleteren from Belgium. Jeez, if she thought those were big, wait until she sees those damn kettle boxes. It's getting close Bugeater. Just waiting for LP conversion for my Honeywell valves and I am going to finish this baby up.

Well, I have my 20 gallon Blingman home. A new boil kettle. I can't use it till I get the Brew Haus built though.



I've ordered the 15 gallon one with the false bottom for my MLT. I need to get a HERMS system built.

20 gallon BK
15 gallon MLT
25 gallon HLT
