The handles are made from rolled stainless steel which is incredibly strong but still easy on your hands.
The MoreBeer! Hot Liquor Tank is also available in smaller 8 gallon and 15 gallon sizes.

BEST ANSWER: Hello Keith - It would be advisable to go with a strong sturdy burner for a kettle this size. BE410 or BL256 are excellent choices.

Excellent quality and features, a lifetime investment.
This isn't my first HLT, but it will definitely be my last. I've come a long way in brewing, from 5 to 10 and now 20 gal batches and this kettle was perfect for what I needed. Its nice having that extra capacity (over 20 gal) to; rinse wort out of my hops, clean/ sterilize pumps and plate chillers, add to boil kettle to achieve needed volumes etc.

I suppose I could have paid more for a 20 gal HLT that had a volume scale, but the extra volume and superior qualty/ construction made it well worth it to me to take 5 minutes out to create the scale just the way I wanted it.

- High quality, superior durability, performs like a dream, and cleans up easily.

A Good Pot
I've just this a few times now without issue. These pots are great and clean-up beautifully. I have never scorched a batch. Love the thick base.

The one thing that keeps me from giving it a 5 star is the sight glass.

There is no scale on the sight glass. What the point of the sight glass if there is no scale on it?

I can look in the pot and see how full the pot is.

I had to pour gallon by gallon into the pot and mark the level on the sight glass.

I eventually took the sight glass and had it engraved.

After that modification, I love the pot.

Great Kettles
I'm using this for a boil kettle, very happy with build quality, welds look great, nice heavy piece will last forever. I whirlpool and chill at the same time and the width of this kettle allows for a great cone to form with at least 2-3 inches to spare from the walls, its been great for fulling crystal clear wort without a kettle screen.

My only issue comes to the sight glass, its a nice piece but you need to very careful with it, i hit it and cracked the threads going into the base, it did take much. Learned my lesson and haven't had an issue since.

I will be upgrading my mash tun and HLT from my sanke kegs and will be buying these bad boys.
