I've done business with both. One of my RIMS modules is from Stout Tanks... Thought about also getting a mashtun, HLT and boil kettle from them, but it was going to take 2-3 months to get it since they come from China. I have a buddy that bought a mashtun and boil kettle from Stout tanks. It was the 10 gal. model... except that it only holds 9.2 gallons.... They are nice kettles, but I ended up splurging and buying Blichmann 20 Gal Kettles for my mashtun, HLT and boil kettles because I didn't want to wait + they are made in the USA. A few other places you should take a look at is maybe www.glaciertanks.com
. Glacier Tanks is fast! They have a pretty cool RIMS module that is nice too.
