a lot of people will use a machined street elbow as a pickup tube however with a false bottom you would need to have a hole custom cut to fit this.

While I am a huge fan of the restaurant-grade made in America BP-series Polar Ware kettles with factory welded fittings (see page #2 of this PDF: http://polarware.com/Vollrath-Files/Polar-Ware-Files/CAT_PW-Homebrew_En_NP_2013-08-22.pdf), I am not a fan of the economy line.  You can do much better for the money.  Bru-Gear offers a nice kettle at that price point.

Bru-Gear has great looking products, but I have yet to see mine. The kickstarter production delivery times have been delayed 2 months, hopefully coming next month. The supporter price was nice, with ball valve, thermometer, npt-TC adaptor, steps for false bottom support and all shiny stainless. From looking at their website, price has only gone up about $50 for a 15 gallon kettle. The main concern is how long it would take to take delivery, as production has not even been completed for the project supporters

You can probably get the braid to sit on the bottom if you incorporate a 90 degree elbow.

What do you not like about their economy line?
