The pot should work fine. It is not "extra thick" as it says though. It's slightly thinner than a comparable megapot, and doesn't appear to have the 5 mm aluminum layer at the bottle.

However, it looks the same as the one my friend bought. It does the job. You won't want to lift it when it's full of wort though. You will need to pump out of that thing.

how would I go about adding a site gauge for this?...

also would the weldless fittings work for this? I'll prob have a friend who's a welder add welded fittings but just out of curiosity/keeping my options open
Just wondering b/c I imagine most of them are used for smaller applications and not sure if they can handle the higher pressure from having a bigger volume of liquid?

Some good sight glass stuff at Bobby's.

From the specs that's a .039 wall. If you go with welded fittings be sure the guy is good. Pretty easy to burn through.

I went weldless with a large washer to spread out the load.

Mine has been holding up well. Its massive. I think its just a little shy of 100qt, but im cool with that anyways.

I have put one fitting in it, I used the dimple and silver solder method. When I pulled the fitting through, the wall split in several places so it required quite a bit of solder. I havent put another fitting in it for fear of the metal splitting irreparably, but who knows.

The manufacturer should have put a ripple near the top to help it keep its shape, it kind of goes out of round (the lid takes some finessing to get on).

Its cheap, its massive, its flimsy.

This.


Works great and was so much cheaper than anything else out there. Just don't get to use it as much as I'd like to.

/and yes HHP Texas IS awesome
