I am currently only doing extract and have no immediate plans to go all grain but eventually plan to. I do however, want to start doing full boils and am looking for a 10 gallon kettle. Does this seem like a good deal?

$139 + free ship

Only heard good things, don't own one, don't get a commission.

That's a pretty good deal.

Looks like SS. The ball valve is very low and could be an issue...or maybe not. Anyone have a valve installed that low. I'm thinking the heat from the burner could overheat the valve...dunno... :-\

I've been using that very kettle for about 4 years now. Never had the least bit of an issue with the valve getting hot. 16 inches in diameter, clears the flam pretty good.

This one seems like a pretty good deal. It's out of stock right now but I am not in a big hurry.

Their Brewhemoth looks pretty nice as well, but a bit more than I need right now.
