Stacking Deals On: 15 Gallon Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 Boil Kettle! – best deal I’ve ever seen on this kettle

blichmann boilermaker kettles

Blichmann G2 Kettles come in a variety of sizes and configurations.  They are tricked out and designed for homebrewing.  They includes a sight gauge, thermometer, revolutionary valve design and more.  Check out my review… Hands on Review – Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 Kettles!

Discounts on Blichmann gear are rare. They are under MAP (minimum advertised pricing) agreements that make sales difficult.  There are periodic workarounds.

Deal #1: As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing has the 15 gallon BoilerMaker marked down to $354.99.  From what I can gather, that’s about $21 less than typical MAP pricing.  Shipping to addresses in the contiguous 48 US states is also free.

Deal;  #2: As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing is giving up to 750 additional bonus rewards points based on how much you purchase. No promo code is needed. Bonus points figure to about a 5% value.  Example: 750 points is about $37.50.  This kettle qualifies for 355 points + the full 750 bonus points.  That comes out to 1,105 points or the equivalent of about $55.25 back on a future purchase AND free shipping to most US addresses is still in play.

Best Deal I’ve Ever Seen: I’m pretty sure this is the best deal we’ve ever run on this kettle.  There may have been an eBay promo that took 20% off.  That would have been about $75 off.  This equals to a total savings about about $76.25, so even if one of those applied to a MAP priced offering this deal beats it.

10 Gallon Stainless Steel Brew Pot w/Volume Markings + Two Welded Ports – $89.99 AND stacking deal

10 Gallon 2 Weld Volume Marked Brew Pot
10 gallon stainless steel kettle from Austin Homebrew Supply

From AHS: “The perfect brew pot for brewing all grain batches of beer! This pot is constructed of 18 gauge steel and features two 1/2″ NPT welded female couplings. These couplings are perfect for adding brewing accessories to your brew set up. Use the lower coupling to add a 1/2″ ball valve assembly on the exterior and a bazooka screen on the interior and use the upper coupling to add a thermometer. Not ready to add that much? A kettle plug will easily close the coupling allowing you to utilize it at a later date. The pot’s interior also features volume markings in quarter gallon markings, staring with 1/4 gallon all the way to 14 gallons.”

The bottom port can be used for a ball valve.  It is a full port meaning that it’s threaded on both sides.  That means you can easily add a bazooka screen of pickup tube on the inside.  The top port can be used for a thermometer.  Since these are welded ports, there’s no messing with weldless kits that have more of a tendency to leak.

As of this posting, this is selling for just $89.99.  Check product page for current price and availability.

AIH_one_weld_19_gallon_stainless_steel_brew_pot_bung

Welded ports mean that you won’t be messing with leaky weldless kits or trying to drill a hole in your kettle.  These are 1/2″ NPT, already installed and leak free.

The ports are also full ports, meaning the are accessible and threaded on both the inside and the outside of the kettle.  For the bottom port, that means you can install both a ball valve (on the outside) and a pickup tube or bazooka screen (on the inside).  Most people probably use the top port for a thermometer.

You can also get the kettle know with an eye to upgrading to in the future.  Just get a 1/2″ NPT plug (along with some teflon tape) to seal these off.
