A Feature-Packed Kettle at an Amazing Price! Now with welded whirlpool inlet!

Whirlpooling has become increasingly popular in the homebrewing community. It can bring out more hop flavor with late additions, improve the clarity of wort by creating a cone of trub that's left behind in the kettle, and greatly decrease cooling time when using an immersion chiller. Pair one of these kettles with a brew pump, and you'll be ready to whirlpool!

These days homebrewers have a lot of strong choices when it comes to their kettle purchase. BrewBuilt has adopted a modern feature set designed to make brew day easier. Silicone handle and lid grips help prevent burns. Etched internal volume markings make filling the kettle for mash or boil simple. Welded valve and thermometer fittings are leak-free and never require maintenance--no more discovering worn gaskets on brew day. The internally threaded valve fittings accept a wide range of in-kettle accessories. The whirlpool inlet comes ready with an internally threaded elbow. Sealed handle rivets are strong and allow the entire kettle to be filled if necessary. And perhaps best of all, BrewBuilt is excited to introduce an industry first: A pre-notched lid with a silicone plug that allows perfect fitting for immersion chillers or an Ultimate Sparge Arm. These kettles are truly designed for brewing.

Just buy it
It’s round, it gets hot, and boils wort. Make sure to order a pick up tube. The weld for the whirlpool port wasn’t the prettiest I’ve ever seen, but nothing leaks and it’s solid. The rest of the pot is flawless, and it beats the crap out of non welded ports. Just buy it. Go on. Do it!

I’m impressed with the heavy duty stainless steel, quality welded fittings, stay cool padded handles and lid with a cutout for chilling.
Brew Built makes high quality products and I am as happy as ever with my new 15 gal. whirlpool kettle. I’ve purchased a Brew Built false bottom to allow this kettle to double as a mash tun. I’m a loyal Brew Built customer!

good value
This kettle is decent quality for the price. It would have been nice had it included a proper whirlpool attachment instead of the ninety degree 3/8" hose barb fitting it came with.

This is my second BB kettle and I am very happy with the quality of the welds and how sturdy it feels I use it as my HLT
and the other for mashing with the false bottom that I purchased separately . I use the lid on a different kettle to boil because it is conveniently notched for my chill coil.
