Description

A good beer brewer is only as good as his or her brew kettle, which is exactly why we created this 15 Gallon Stainless Steel Kettle. Made of 1.2mm thick stainless steel with no ridges or welded seams, this 15-gallon brew kettle is resistant to denting or leaking and it is made to last through years of frequent use.

Our 15-gallon brew kettle features a tri-clad bottom with an aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of food-grade stainless steel. This provides even heat distribution while brewing, eliminates hot spots and even makes your cleanup easier than ever before. Heavy-duty handles are made of rolled stainless steel, which makes carrying your heavy kettle easier on your hands. With an extra thick side wall and included stainless steel lid, you won’t find a brew kettle more durable or more convenient than this 15 Gallon Stainless Steel Kettle.

A smaller 8 Gallon Stainless Steel Kettle is also available.

Awesome Brew Pot
The way it is made keeps the temp so much more consistent and it brews much better than the pot I was using. Love the spigot on the front as when it's full, it's far too heavy to move! Great pot and love finally have a good pot to brew in.

Lid not so heavy duty
The pot is very sturdy compared to my cheaper kettle. The downside of that is its much heavier. The weld on my lid also failed, which is odd considering it only bears the weight of the lid. It has made using the pot quite frustrating, but I'm hesitant to by another lid that might also fail. I'm also worried about safety since the lid is heavy enough to injure someone if it is dropped. I wish it had a riveted lid or a better weld, especially since other pots that cost the same have riveted lid handles.

HD 15 is an excellent kettle
It's a big step up from the keggle I previously used. It's lighter, easier to clean and allows a better post boil whirlpool. Much more bling appeal too.

I have one question. Has anyone successfully used the HD15 on an induction heater?

Great bang for your buck to get to 10 gallon batches
I got this piece about 6 months ago and I've got to say I love it. It holds temp much better than I thought it would, the false bottom is perfect for keeping whole leaf hops out of your fermenter and it's a versatile piece to have. I just purchased a brew sculpture and it fits perfectly. No need to buy a different kettle or modify this one. Just put it on and go!

Great upgrade to my setup
I was looking for an upgrade from my turkey fryer pot and burner. I chose to go with this kettle and blichmann burner. I noticed improvement off the first batch. Everything heats up incredibly fast. The heat distribution is great! I've done measurements when heating water and there is almost no variance in the water temperature at the bottom and the top of the kettle. This thing is a workhorse. I've had it for 6 months now and it has treated my wort well. It is a good option for those out there looking for a keggle. One thing I would change would be for it to come with etched measuring lines on the inside to see how many gallons or liters you are working with.

Very solid kettle!
Great kettle. Good workmanship on all the welds. I should have this thing forever!

I love this kettle
When I made the jump to full boil brewing I purchased this kettle and increased my batch size at the same time. I have been very happy with the performance of my kettle. One thing I did not think of is that, no matter your strength, it is unsafe to lift 12 gallons of boiling wort. This kettle will work best with if you can chill and transfer to your fermenter without having to move the kettle. A slight oddity about the kettle: it holds 15 gallons, but is only 14 inches tall. A slight alteration to the design making the inside height an even 15 inches would make measuring your water much simpler. At 14 inches, however, it is close enough to not be significant.

Great kettle!
I purchased this at the MoreBeer store in Los Altos almost two years ago. It hasn't failed me once!

The kettle is heavy duty and the tri-clad bottom spreads the heat evenly across the bottom. I've never scorched a batch using this kettle.

Heats water and wort fast.

I've always only used hand soap and bar keepers friends to clean it and I've not had any rusting or pitting. Bar keepers friend will keep this thing nice and shiny.

My only line of advice, when you upgrade to a kettle of this size, you are going to want to get a pump too!

A Workhorse
After using this for five all grain (with morebeer false bottom) and two extracts, I really appreciate the kettle.

It is a good value for the price and will be a workhorse for many years. I've ended up tipping the kettle forward to get the needed wort from sparging. The kettle is heavy. With 12-14 gallons of liquid .... very heavy. The two ports are easy to use and morebeer has many different thermometers and valves or stainless to hook up.

Great value
I bought this to transition from extract to BIAB. Reaches target temp quickly and holds temperature beautifully. After doing the aluminum foil cover for immersion chiller method, using the notched lid saved even more time.
