Pricing out kettles for 2bbl system and was wondering if anyone has used the Blichmann Boilermaker extension. Any input, comments, or feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Get something with CIP and bottom drain.
Also check your local SS welder if they can make you BK.
How do you want to fire this thing up?

I saw the Blackman 2 bbl extended kettle at NHC and it is crazy tall and I hate the fact that it is 2 pieces. I think that design is a terrible idea all around.

I agree, it is very tall and it is also not temp controlled.  I was looking for something 2+ bbls for the brewery, but I am staying away from that one.
