22 Gallon (88 Quart) BrewBuilt Kettle
Heavy Duty, 304 Stainless Steel
With Notched Lid, Gasket, and Ball Valve
Designed for beer brewing. Built to Last! This 22 gallon (88 quart) Brewbuilt kettle (part number BE356) is made from 304 stainless steel and offers an unparalleled mix of features for the price.
Two welded-in-place couplers offer a lifetime of leak-free use. Welding in a coupler costs more than punching a hole and using a gasket (ie weldless) fitting. Welded fittings offer a permanent connection that is worth every penny.
Kettle includes a notched lid with silicone plug. This notch allows TONS of flexibility; you can use an immersion chiller, a sparge arm for mashing, tie off hop bags, take a temp reading during cooling, or whatever else you can dream up.
This kettle boasts internal volume markers from the bottom to the top - very handy for instant reads.
Silicone sleeved handles on the kettle and lid protect your hands.
Tri-clad bottom with 4mm core of aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel offers even heat distribution during the boil and also makes it a perfect choice for anyone wanting to use an induction burner.
The bottom coupler has 1/2" male threads on the outside and 1/2'' female threads on the inside. You can easily install a pick up tube, stainless quick disconnects, a kettle screen, or any other fitting that features 1/2" NPT Male threads.
304 grade, 1.2mm thick stainless steel means less corrosion issues than with a kettle made from lower grade 201 type stainless. This kettle has been corrosive salt water tested, and it passed with flying colors. The rivets and riveted handles are stainless steel for a long term, trouble free life.
The included ball valve is a two piece design that allows for easy cleaning and is also made from 304 stainless steel.
This brewing kettle features a 1.2:1 ratio where the height is 1.2 times the diameter. This is a proven commercial ratio that has been adopted in homebrewing to achieve a more consistent 10% evaporation rate during the boil.
