62 Quart Stainless Kettle – $99 Shipped + Feedback

62 quarts/15.5 Gallons.  Stainless kettle and lid.  20 gauge SS.  Measures 15-1/4 by 15-1/4 by 18-3/4 inches.  This gets great ratings.

HBF Reader Jason Says: “I’ve been brewing 5 gallon batches on the 44 quart version of this pot and looking to upgrade for 10 gal batches. I absolutely love my Bayou Classic pot! Solid construction with no flexing and it’s stainless, so it cleans up easily and will essentially last for decades with good care. It was super easy to install the ball valve with a step drill bit and it’s one of the most affordable SS pots on the market without being made of cheap, thin metal.”

Zip picked up a couple of these brand new kegs from RiteBrew.  He said they are “Beautiful” and tweeted me a few pictures.  

These Brand New, NSF Approved, 5 Gallon Ball Lock Kegs are selling for $84.99.  That’s the second lowest price we’ve seen on Homebrew Finds for a brand new ball lock keg.  Probably the lowest price ever on an NSF Approved Keg.  This is a great deal for a brand new keg.

    Reader Feedback: ThermoWorks Customer Service + Sales & Reviews

    After reading my recent Hands on Review of ThermoWorks RT600C Thermometer (on sale), HBF Reader Billy emailed me and let me know that his RT600C wasn’t reading accurately at boiling temperatures.  I don’t think that’s typical.  My RT600C has worked very well for years.  I’ve also gotten a lot of positive feedback, from others, about this great thermometer. 

    In my experience, ThermoWorks has great customer service, so, I encouraged Billy to contact their customer service department and he did so.  After some back and forth, the technician offered to send out a new replacement and double check the accuracy of the replacement before shipping.  All of this and the thermometer is about a year out of warranty.  That is… amazing customer service.  Do keep in mind that ThermoWorks is not obligated to replace or support equipment out of warranty.  In this case, they went above and beyond.  This is an illustration that shows that ThermoWorks stands behind their products.  Kudos to ThermoWorks!

    Reader Tip: Igloo 10 Cu Ft Chest Freezer – $249.99

    Thanks to HBF Reader Kyle for this tip!


    via Best Buy.  10 Cubic Ft Chest Freezer from Igloo.  Regular price is $399.99.  It’s marked down $150 to $249.99.  In store pickup is free.  I’m guessing the product page photo is a stock image for the line as the ratios don’t look correct to me for a 10 Cubic Ft Freezer.  Just a guess, but maybe it’s just… really tall.  :).


    The 7.2 Cubic Ft Version is marked down to $179.99.
