4.0 / 5.07 ReviewsGreat pots, below average fittingsI am new to brewing, but have been in metal fabrication management my entire career. These pots are first class for the price. I have a new blichmann 10 gallon as well, and these pots are heavier built._x000D__x000D_Where they fall short is the bulkhead fittings. The double o ring without a inset washer / nut (I mean grooved to accept the oring into the nut/washer) means what sits on the kettle is the o ring with metal outside that on both sides. when you go to move the valve, there is way too much play in the valve. In addition threading the valve on to a nipple means playing the how much tape do I need to make this leak proof game, where in other better systems there is simply an o ring in between the valve and fitting. It seems to me that for about 20 dollars more they could have included the specific for weldless brewing fittings rather than the off the shelf, unwieldy, leak prone fitting._x000D__x000D_I immediately went out to a brewing fittings vendor and bought the correct ones._x000D__x000D_As to the false bottom, yes it is one very tight fit, and I had to force it to the bottom, and it is hard to pull out, but not impossible. And yes you scratch the inside of the kettle, so a bit of a reduction in diameter is in order._x000D__x000D_In short its just short of being a great set, and it cost me 50 bucks additional to get good fittings.July 22, 201515 Gallon SystemJust bought a 15 gallon system and brewed a batch this weekend. The pots themselves are very well built. Tri-clad bottom and sturdy walls are great! Also, they look really nice too! My only problems were the screw in valves and thermometer, and the false bottom. The valves and thermo were kind of a cheap way to go about it if you ask me. And the thermometer leaked the first time I used it. I get the ability to remove and clean and all, but would have preferred them welded in. The false bottom didn't fit correctly (even after I let the pot heat up) and I had to modify it to make it fit. (Scratched up the inside of one of my pots the first time I tried to install it) _x000D_All in all great pots and very happy with them. A little more QC and some welding could have made this a truly amazing buy.October 14, 2014I LOVE MY NEW POTSThe pair of pots came in the mail shortly after they were ordered. They were well packaged and were not warped at all, unlike the 180 qt Bayou classic pot was that I ordered a few months ago, which was poorly packaged and warped when I got it. I drilled a hole in the side of my boil kettle and installed my 5500W electric heating element. I brewed by first batch right away and the pots worked out great. The bottom of the pots look very well reinforced and would be great for gas burners too. I cooked a 15 gallon batch and boiled down a total volume of 20 gallons with my electric system. These oversized pots were great. The water got from 70 to 170 in about 30 min with the single 5500W heater. The one complaint I have about the purchase is that the o-rings for the valves wiggle a lot. I think there should be a groove in the nut that holds the o-ring better so that when I tighten down the nut, the o-ring doesn't squeeze out. I was not able to tighten the nut enough to keep the valves from wiggling during normal use, and they would leak a couple drops each time they moved.December 22, 2015Nice potsThe accessories that come with it could be of better quality. The ball locks are very stiff, and the weld less part of it takes some real tinkering with to get them to not leak. Once every thing is water tight the pots worked just great. However the ball locks need to be replaced with something better and not so stiff.February 4, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesThanks for the review Josh! The nut right at the top of the handle can be loosened if the handle is stiff. They get easier over time so if you do loosen it, you might consider retightening later on as well. I hope that does the trick for yours! But let us know if we can help!November 2, 2016Midwest SuppliesAssembly instructions were seriously lacking!!Assembly instructions were seriously lacking!!January 7, 2016Good KettlesThese are very well made. You will be pleased with this purchase.August 4, 2016

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 4 answerswhat kind of fittings are on these pots and how do the hoses connect without fittings themselves?BEST ANSWER: The fittings are basically ball valves screwed to the pots through a hole at the bottom. There are gaskets that seal the pots around the screw on the inside so it won't leak. There are hose-barb fittings on the "downstream" side of the ball valves on the outside. The hoses slip on to the barbs and come with hose clamps. The fittings are stainless steel as far as I can tell. Been brewing a year with this kit. Been happy with it.how much does it weitgh?BEST ANSWER: Hi there, the most popular, the 10 gallon, weighs 44.5lbs. Cheers!On let's say a 10 gallon system, does that mean each mega pot has a 10 gallon capacity? Or each is 5 gallon?
