Our new T.C. kettles were designed to keep pace with the ever-evolving world of brewing technology. The appetite for tri-clamp fittings continues to grow in the homebrewing market as T.C. fermenters and pumps become more affordable and widely available. Tri-clamp fittings, also known as Tri-clover, allow you to make a sanitary connection that is free of nooks and crannies for contaminants to take hold. They are much easier to break down for cleaning compared to threaded connections, and they don’t require Teflon tape to make a watertight seal. T.C. fittings and accessories also give you the distinct advantage of being able to clean in place (CIP), so you don’t need to break down your entire system after every brew day.
With the ball valve hardware pack, you'll have everything you need to use the kettle on Day 1. The advantage of this model is that you're getting a fully functional kettle and the lowest cost. The disadvantage is that ball valves tend to trap a small amount of wort inside them, so you may need to break it down for cleaning in between brew days.
Ball Valve Pack Includes:
- 1/2" Ball Valve
- 2 x Tri-Clamps
- 2 x Tri-Clamp Gaskets
- T.C. to 1/2" MPT adapter
- 1/2" MPT x 5/8" Barb
- T.C. End Cap (for plugging thermometer port)
- Teflon Tape
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 the 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 ports are leak-free and never require maintenance--no more discovering worn gaskets on brew day. Sealed handle rivets are strong and allow the entire kettle to be filled if necessary. And perhaps best of all, it features the signature BrewBuilt notched lid with a silicone plug that allows the lid to be in place while using immersion chillers or an Ultimate Sparge Arm. These kettles are truly designed for brewing.

I bought this for BIAB days where I am brewing big IPA's. It's a fantastic kettle, does the job with aplomb. Seems to have a fairly high evaporation rate. If anyone who owns this has figured the evap. rate and is willing to share it would be great. I'll figure it out after 3 or 4 brew days but it'd be nice to know a ballpark figure in the meantime. But I digress. The handles are great and the ability to hang the lid on the handle is great. Build quality is very high and I am very satisfied with my purchase. Highly recommend this kettle if you're looking to upgrade to bigger batches.
Shopping for a well-built 20 gallon kettle at a reasonable price, the BrewBuilt stood out. It was about $100 more than other kettles on sale and well worth the money. I was a little apprehensive about the brushed appearance vs. a polished surface, however the kettle performed well, was easy to clean, and heated uniformly. The optional 2 piece ball valve is good quality. I paired it with a BrewBuilt 3" thermometer. Be advised that if you use an immersion wort chiller, purchase a 1/2"ID x 50 ft coil to ensure you can cool down the wort in a reasonable time. I highly recommend BrewBuilt products.
I've been using Blichmann 15 gallon kettles for a while now - probably done 50 brews in the Blichmann kettles. One as a mash tun, the other as a boil kettle. I love the Blichmann kettles. Two comments: the Blichmann external glass tube showing the liquid level in the kettle always clogs when mashing. Always. So it's pretty much useless for showing where the liquid level is in your mash. In the boil kettle, the liquid is almost always boiling inside the glass tube so it's useless for tracking liquid level in the boil kettle too. The new blichmann G2 kettles have a weird knob valve instead of the "normal" ball valve, and for me the boil and mash kettle valves are either open or closed (I have a valve on my pump) so I don't need a fancy valve. In the end the BrewBuilt kettle made more sense than buying a G2. And I love the rubber handles on the brewbuilt lid. It doesn't slide around like the Blichmann lid when I set it on a table upside down. Great kettle. Very happy, and less wort scorching than the Blichmann kettles too.
