Overall, Kettle is well made. Brewed a one gallon batch of beer and it worked great. Only negatives are Thermometer is a little high, so if you are only making a 1 or 2 gallon batch, the thermometer will not be submerged in the liquid. For the ball valve, you only get a 1/2" female NPT, which is fine to mate to whatever configuration you may have, however, you will at least need a connector with a hose in order to get the siphon effect for the internal elbow. Otherwise, you will leave about a 1/2 gallon in the kettle if you try to drain it just through the valve. I bought a 1/2" male NPT to 3/8" hose barb and connected about 2 feet of clear tygon tubing in order to drain the kettle completely into my fermenter.

Owner Response: Eric - Thanks for your review and I'm glad you like the kettle! You are right about the draining with the valve. Although the included dip tube is great, it will greatly help if you attach a barb and some tubing to the valve! Thanks for your business! Cheers! Bryan
