I purchased tis for my husband whoes new hobby is home brewing beer. This Kettle is excellent quality- thick stainless steel. the only issue was that the thermometer and spigot had to be inserted. I would recommend, after installing the thermometer and spigot test for leaks with water in the pot. We started to brew only to have to empty the pot and reseal the spigot.

DONT USE THE BALL VALVE included in this product. It has some sort of grease in it that will ruin your beer. No matter what I do i cannot get the valve to stop reeking of grease.
The rest of the product seems to work fine, but you need to get yourselves a food grade valve on your own.
I had originally bought another brew kettle from a different vendor, but they didn't see fit to actually protect the kettle for shipping so it arrived damaged. Ordered this one instead. Firstly, it was double-boxed and arrived safe and sound. It was also much more strongly made than the other (non Overstock) item.
Brewed my first all-grain batch 2 weeks ago. Worked great - my only complaint is that the thermometer did not seem to change when I added 200 degree water to increase the mash temp even though a second thermometer did. It worked fine during a test boil and the boiling of the wort. so we'll see.
I just wish the box was big enough that I could store the pot in it, but once you install the spigot, it won't fit.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Um, silver like stainless steel should be
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems like nice sturdy construction

Hello dragontooth! Unfortunately, we don't have that option available. I apologize for the inconvenience. The diameter of the rim is 12 inches on the kettle. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 23, 2013
