Along with the high quality welding comes a lifetime leak free design. Simply apply plumbers tape, hand screw onto your tank and use a wrench to turn a little past hand tight; that’s it. Ditch weld-less fittings that are clumsy to install and have o-rings which will leak and fail at some point. Weld-less designs are a cheaper, inferior connection that you will not find anywhere on the professional scale.
Stepped Bottom - Boil Kettle
Our stepped bottom design creates an upper and lower shelf. This lower shelf creates a dead zone the hops will collect in. This is especially beneficial when paired with a whirlpool (either manual or using a pump) before draining. The top step allows a place for the side pickup tube to rest above the settled hop material. This results in crystal clear wort being transferred to your fermentation vessel.
Stepped Bottom - Mash Tun
The stepped bottom also functions as a shelf for the false bottom to seal against. The stainless on stainless seal means there is no need for rubber gaskets in your grain bed (rubber infused beer; no thanks). The ingenious design also seals better as more grain is added. The additional weight creates a better sealing force. This is opposed to other designs that start to flex or crush under heavy grain bills. The bottom perforated ring helps supports the grain weight while also filtering the wort again before it reaches the pickup tube. All this this creates an ultra-low dead space which allows us to boast industry leading efficiencies.
Great kettle with all the features
