Description

Designed for Brewing. Built to Last.  The new line of Brewbuilt kettles, made from 304 stainless steel, offers an unparalleled mix of features for the price. At the very top of the list are two welded-in place couplers that offer a lifetime of leak free use.  As you can imagine, welding in a coupler costs more than punching a hole and using a gasketed (ie weld-less) fitting. Welded fittings offer a permanent connection that to us is worth every penny.  The second unique feature that we absolutely love about these kettles is the notched lid with silicone plug.  This notch allows you so much flexibility; you can use an immersion chiller, one of our Ultimate Sparge Arms for mashing, tie off hop bags, take a temp reading during cooling, or whatever else we all can dream up.  

The BrewBuilt Mash Tun
We've taken our Heavy Duty False Bottom setups, and kicked them up a notch.  A Silicone gasket rings this false bottom, insuring no grain makes it through to your boil.  A slick Quick Disconnect Maximizer gets every last drop of wort from your mash tun, and makes installation a breeze.  The maximizer is centered, and allows us to drop the False bottom closer to the kettle floor, minimizing dead space, giving you more room for those burly brews.  Comes with 6" BrewBuilt BiMetal thermometer by TelTru.

These Mash tuns are Built for Brewing, and will serve you for years!

This Kettle has a lot to offer...
Some other features we dig include the internal volume markers from the bottom to the top - so handy for instant reads.  The silicone sleeved handles on the kettle and the lid are a cool feature to protect your hands. The tri-clad bottom with a 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 is also cool with 1/2" male threads on the outside and 1/2'' female threads on the inside.  Those internal threads are so handy...  you can easily install a pick up tube, stainless quick disconnects, a kettle screen, or any other fitting that features 1/2" MPT threads.  

Beefy 304 Stainless
These kettles are made from 304 grade stainless.  That means you will have less corrosion issues than with a kettle made from lower grade 201 type stainless. We put these kettles through a corrosive salt water test in the MoreBeer! shop and they passed with flying colors. We also made sure the rivets and riveted handles were also made of stainless steel for a long term, trouble free life.  The 10 and 15 gallon size are made from 1.0mm thick stainless steel. The 22 and 30 gallon size are made with 1.2mm stainless - that's pretty thick stuff - and you will know it when you pick one up. The included ball valve is a two piece design that allows for easy cleaning (we prefer these over 3 piece for ease of assembly) and is also made from 304 stainless. 

Size Ratios and stuff
All the Brewbuilt kettles follow the recent trend to 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.  We do like this ratio for boilling. For Mashing we would prefer a little bit shallower but that is a small compromise. Dimensions for a hot-liquor tank, if you are thinking brewing system down the road, are irrelevant as any ratio kettle will do.  

Unique 22 Gallon Size
This size was born from customer feedback. Many customers making 10 gallons actually want to end up with 10 gallons at the end of kegging. That means you can be starting a boil with 13-14 gallons of wort to account for boil off, kettle loss, and fermenter loss. The 22 Gallon size kettle allows you to boil those quantities with plenty of room for boil overs. Want to make a 15 gallon batch with friends... you can squeeze that in to! You'll never regret having a little extra kettle.

Final Words
With welded fittings, a bunch of cool features, and a solid, thick 304 stainless steel core this kettle is a pretty amazing value. There are a host of accessories that will be available soon including a trick false bottom for mashing, a whirlpool arm for recirculating, and more. Remember,  if you order from MoreBeer! we ship free anywhere in the continental USA!

Great mash tun
Unlike other reviews I had no issues at all with the gasket. It stayed on and provided a good seal. Over time I could see that adding keg lube would help keep it in place when inserting it in the kettle but there weren't any issues during the first use. Heavy duty construction which should last a long time.

Great Piece of Equipment
This is an amazing piece of equipment. The 22 gallons capacity allows for easy mashing and boiling of batches of 1/2 barrel or 15 gallons of wort. The gallon etching inside allow for easy measuring of strike water. The removable silicone plug allows for attachable accessories such the Ultimate Sparge Arm or a heat exchanger. The low, gasketed false bottom allows for great filtering with minimal dead space. Overall great product

False Bottom Gasket
The gasket for this false bottom is great WHEN you can get it to remain round the screen when setting it back in. I've been using StarSan for the lubrication but 75% of the time the gasket comes off just as it's being set. The gasket is tight which is a good thing. The gasket is so tight it won't slide into place.
What's the solution?

Response from MoreFlavor
Try applying keg lube to the gasket sparingly . . . it goes a long way. Wet the gasket and the a squeeze of keg lube on the tip of your finger can prep the whole gasket.
