Please, lets not flood this thread with off topic stuff.
FYI full disclosure, the kettles are commercially available because I gave them (stout) the rights. I don't benefit off this in any way shape or form. It was given to them, because of all the people I reached out to, to build these for me. They were easily the best, most talented, and easiest to deal with. Much like everything else we do for free, it's for the greater good. Not in this to make a buck.
So lets please just leave the bickering for other threads. Please.
