- 5.0 / 5.03 ReviewsMulti-purpose kettleI use this kettle as a mash tun and boil kettle for BIAB, and it works great. The temp probe doesn't damage the grain bag as long as you're mindful of it. The sight glass is easy to clean with water pressure alone (from a faucet or hose), and I find it's not necessary to ever remove the sight glass, valve port, or thermometer for cleaning. No problems with scorched wort, either. FYI - I originally thought there was an issue with the accuracy of the sight glass. I use gallons of distilled water from the grocery store, and after pouring 5 gallons into the kettle, it read 5.25 gallons on the sight glass. I called Blichmann and spoke to an engineer who had me weight out the water as I filled the kettle (8.34 lbs/gallon). I did this and found out the sight glass was perfectly accurate and the discrepancy was due to each distilled gallon jug being slightly overfilled. When I eventually need another kettle, it will definitely be a Blichmann!November 6, 2017Purchased
7 months agoGreat brew potThe side glass makes it easy to see how much wort is collectedDecember 23, 2015Serious Brew Kettle!I bought the Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 10-gallon version and have done some initial testing with it and I'm quite impressed! I'm super satisfied with the parts and components as well as the way this kettle is manufactured. It's very well made! This kettle will be only for boiling wort in my home brewery. I mash in a cooler and have a different smaller kettle that I use for heating mash water. A previous comment here talks about the fragility of the sight tube, and I don't really see any issues with it myself. I would not recommend fully disassembling the site glass to clean it. I think if you do that, you will possibly experience the problems that were mentioned there. I would ONLY remove the top hex screw and use the provided brush to clean the tube. You can clean the inlet and exhaust ports with the same brush without removing and disassembling the sight glass. I'm also really impressed with the new ball valve assembly on the G2 model. I have not owned the previous model, but this new assembly can be fully cleaned without removing it from the kettle. You can simply remove the end piece on the outside and use a brush to clean the insides of the rest of the assembly while it's still mounted on the kettle.October 12, 2014
- Browse 6 questions Browse 6 questions and 11 answersWhat are the dimensions of the 15 gallon kettle in terms of radius/diameter and height?what is the dimension in inches from the bottom of the 20 gallon brew kettle to the first (valved) port centerline?BEST ANSWER: From the center line of the valve to the bottom of the kettle is 3.25 inches.Do I need to purchase any additional equipment to run this and boil my wort?BEST ANSWER: You will of course need a heating source whether gas burner or conversion to electric, but otherwise includes all the bells and whistles you see here that make it a fully functional pot. Does not include false bottom if you have any plans to use it for a mash tun (but this should NOT be used when boiling wort).Can this pot be used with an induction cooker?BEST ANSWER: You probably want to contact Blichmann directly to answer that. I can say that bottom is very thin and the kettle is not configured for recirculating, so scorching is quite possible. I have modified it to be a mash tun and reused a sparge arm from another brand.What is the thread size of the lower valve? 1/2 NPT?BEST ANSWER: Yes, 1/2 nptHow tall is the 7.5 gallon pot?BEST ANSWER: The 7.5 gallon model is 14.8 inches to the rim of the kettle. The lid and lid handle add another 2-1/4 inches to the height.
