    Does anyone have any info on these pots? JARHILL 96/70 QT Stainless Steel Stock Pots

    I used simple dish detergent and hot water with no problem of residues.

    Does anyone have any info on these pots? JARHILL 96/70 QT Stainless Steel Stock Pots

    No problem :). These pics are of the 96 QT pot. I have not measured capacity yet; I am waiting on that until I get a sight gauge installed. No corrosion yet, but I'll keep an eye on the handles. I dropped one of the 96 QT pots off at Adventures in Homebrewing (www.homebrewing.org). They are...

    Does anyone have any info on these pots? JARHILL 96/70 QT Stainless Steel Stock Pots

    OK, I finally messed around with mine yesterday. These bad boys are big, but hey, that's what we were hoping for! My thoughts: 1. The handles seem quite solid, but I wouldn't move the pot with them when full. 2. The metal seems a bit thin; it doesn't have a really 'sturdy' feel to it. The...

    Does anyone have any info on these pots? JARHILL 96/70 QT Stainless Steel Stock Pots

    Well, throwing caution to the the wind I ordered 3 sets the other day. I'll break them up and keep the 3 largest pots; there's a few local guys interested in the smaller pots. I'll report back in once I get them.

    Does anyone have any info on these pots? JARHILL 96/70 QT Stainless Steel Stock Pots

    Thread necromancy! Would any owners care to chime in on how they like these pots? Same ebay store now has 96/70/49 pot combos going for $69.99. I missed out on the roundeyesupply pots when they were at a decent price; these look to be pretty similar. I could buy a few combos and then sell...

    220,000 btu worth the upgrade?

    The best thing you can do for yourself is make a wind guard that goes high enough around your boil kettle to keep the hot gasses encased around it. I made a simple/crappy-yet-effective one out of aluminum flashing and rivets. I hit boil in about half the time and use about have the gas.

    80 Quart Stainless Kettle with Lid for $55 plus shipping

    ccw--bigger, as in it's just massive and more than you want to have on your burner? Or it's more boil space than you want? Or???

    80 Quart Stainless Kettle with Lid for $55 plus shipping

    I thought I had heard that the AiH pots were 18 ga, so a little higher quality :). But I may have heard wrong :p. Also, having welded fittings is a nice little improvement. Icing on the cake more than anything. If there's no appreciable difference in pot thickness, then these pots deserve...

    80 Quart Stainless Kettle with Lid for $55 plus shipping

    Hehehe I'm aiming for 10-15 gal batches in the future, and building a brew rig to match! I was eying those Adventures in Homebrewing pots, but these are just sooooo much cheaper! Maybe I'll get the AiH pots for boil/mash tun, and one of these for HLT. Pretty safe for that. :)

    80 Quart Stainless Kettle with Lid for $55 plus shipping

    So, since the 25 gal seems to be on the thicker side, would you guys recommend it as a boil pot?

    Have you ever regretted an upgrade to a bigger pot?

    I should mention that my current boil pot is a 'half converted' keg--top chopped open, but no ports. It's always been a bear to clean afterwards. But I suppose that wouldn't be quite the case if I'm using PBW :p. And I do have a plethora of smaller pots as well, which I've put to use on the...

    Have you ever regretted an upgrade to a bigger pot?

    I'm in the process of parting out my upgrade away from my poor-college-student setup, and made the mistake of visiting a buddy who has a ginormous brewery setup. Well, I had been planning on going with a 3-keg setup, and even have the kegs on hand. But he got me to thinking that maybe I could...

    Planning brewery upgrade--garage or basement?

    I have two options for water in the basement--use the existing utility sink 15-20 ft away, or hook up to overhead water lines. That's probably the easiest part of using the basement :p. Drainage is the much larger concern; sounds like your sewer line is below your basement's level...

    Planning brewery upgrade--garage or basement?

    okiedog--I went to your link, but the point remains--either I need to put the pump down into the existing sump, or have some sort of chamber in which to put the pump, necessitating raising the floor :/ I do need to upgrade my electrical....100A just isn't sufficient these days. Especially when...

    Planning brewery upgrade--garage or basement?

    Thanks for the responses so far :). okiedog--wouldn't a drain pump need some sort of reservoir to fill/empty so that it doesn't run all the time? And that would need to be below the brewery section... I should mention that all of my fermenters, gear, and ingredients are currently stored in...

    Planning brewery upgrade--garage or basement?

    So, I've hit a snag. It's finally time for me to look into upgrading my shady college brew setup, but I'm not sure where I should put it. I have two potential locations in my house to put a semi-permanent brew system/sculpture, but each has it's own distinct advantages/disadvantages. I'd...

    Aeration Risks? - no line filter

    Well, I have to second the 20 mile = crazy. Egads man, I'm about ready to pass out after one, but I can walk 20 miles in a day. Running just never agreed with me.

    Options for new equipment?

    I use a 15 gallon pot or a keggle straddling two gas burners on my stove. I don't get as much evaporation as I'd like, but it certainly gets up to boil :D.
