Reader Tip: 62 Quart [15.5 Gallon] Stainless Steel Kettle… $74.59… Shipped, Best Price

Thanks to HBF Reader Andrew for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Bayou Classic 1060 - 62 Quart Kettle

62 quarts/15.5 Gallon Kettle by Bayou Classic.  Stainless kettle and lid.  20 gauge SS.  Measures 15-1/4 by 15-1/4 by 18-3/4 inches.

At 15.5 gallons this should work great as a brew kettle for 5 and 10 gallon (maybe even a bit more) batches.  It could also function and a mash tun or HLT and could be used as a Brew in a Bag (BIAB) kettle.

10/21/16 2 PM Central: This highly rated kettle has dropped to just $74.59. That’s the best historical direct from Amazon price I found. Shipping to most US addresses also is free. Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Andrew says he bought two of these a few years ago for… $114.19 each

Ends Soon: Inkbird Itc-310T, Dual Stage w/6 Timers – $41.84


Itc-301T by Inkbird.  Digital Dual Stage Pre-Wired Temperature Controller with 6 Timers.

Dual stage means that the Itc-310T can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.

This controller is similar to the Inkbird Itc-308 – [Review] with some notable differences including the fact that the 310T has a timer feature that allows you to program 6 temperatures in 6 periods of time.  That plays well with changing fermentation and conditioning temperatures during fermentation.

10/21/16 10:15 AM Central: This highly rated controller has recently sold for $54.99.  It’s dropped to $46.49.  That’s the best historical direct from Amazon price I found. Use promo code OVAJKYFW at checkout and the price drops another 10% at checkout, making it… $41.84. Shipping to most US addresses is also free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order.

Stainless Steel False Bottom for BIAB


Stainless Steel False Bottom designed to keep your BIAB bag off the bottom of your kettle.

More from Brew Hardware

“First is a false bottom specifically designed for Brew In A Bag process. When you use a mesh bag in a pot, whether it’s directly fired on a burner or heated electrically, you want to keep the bag off the bottom. Typical homebrew false bottoms have really small holes and cut off the free flow that mesh bags are know for. Another less desirable choice is a steamer rack or tray that is found in kitchen shops, but none of those are stainless steel.

Our units start with 1.25mm 304SS welded wire mesh on 1/2″ centers. The mesh is supported by a double outer ring, both on top and bottom of the mesh and a pair of cross braces across the middle. This support material is nearly 1/4” in diameter an very sturdy. The legs are made of M8 metric bolts and are threaded into five nuts that are welded to the mesh. This modular leg style allows for just about any height you need just by changing out the length of the bolts.

You have the choice of several lengths during purchase, electable in the drop down menu. Note that if you select “no legs”, the screen still has the welded nuts that will accept legs in the future. Without the bolt legs, the screen will sit about 1/4″ off the bottom supported by the bottom rolled ring.

While it uses a max of 5 legs, you can use it without the center leg in case your heating element is in the way.

Again, make no mistake about it. If you see another product like this on any restaurant supply store, amazon or ebay, know that they are all chrome plated steel and they will rust.”


This is available in three sizes, depending on your kettle – 13″, 14″ and 17.5″
