Our famous MoreBeer! Heavy Duty Brew Kettles are now fully assembled Mash Tuns! Each kettle has two 1/2" threaded couplers welded to them, a thermometer, and a false bottom. The bottom outlet is very unique with male threads on the outside (for connecting a ball valve) and female threads on the inside for connecting whatever you wish. Check out these features! They Will Last a Lifetime! Constructed from durable, long-lasting stainless steel, these kettles are virtually dent proof. Over the years, we have heard countless stories from brewers who have ruined their thin-walled kettles by dropping and denting them. This is no longer an issue with these beefy, super-thick kettles. Tri-Clad Bottom Our kettles are built with a tri-clad bottom featuring an aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. Aluminum allows for even heat distribution while the food-grade stainless steel is the only metal in contact with your wort. Even heat distribution eliminates hot spots, which prevents scorching of your malt and makes cleanup a breeze! Seamless - Made from a single piece of metal Our kettles are drawn, meaning the kettle is made from one piece of stainless steel. No welded seams. Heavy Duty Handles! The handles on these kettles are just as heavy duty as the rest of the kettle. This is because they are made from rolled stainless steel, which is strong and easy on your hands. Mash Tuns include a false bottom and a high quality thermometer. The 18-gauge stainless steel false-bottom features a perforation of 3/32 holes on 5/32 centers. This is considered standard commercial sizing. If the perforation is larger, you get too much grain husk material falling through. If the perforation is smaller you risk stuck mashes when using flaked grains or high percentages of wheat - especially when using a pump to recirculate the mash.
