I bought a Bayou Classic 30 qt. brew/mash kettle with a false bottom for around $220 from Amazon back in September. All in all, it’s a high quality setup that works great for me and is really easy to clean after brewing. The only problem (which is kind of a big one, as far as value for money is concerned) is the built-in thermometer, which simply doesn’t really work at all. It only works sporadically, and it never matches the reading I get from the floating thermometer I use in the unit instead. That having been said, I have to question the usefulness of a built-in thermometer in a mash tun anyway, because of the fact that it cannot be moved around, and can only ever check the temp in the spot it’s rooted to. I prefer a floating thermometer that I can move around because a mash tun is always going to have hot and cold spots, and you can never really be confident that the temp you’re reading in any one spot is a reliable indicator of the temp for the mash as a whole. Apart from that problem with the thermometer, though, I have to say that the unit feels quite solidly built to me, and it’s way less expensive than one from Blickmann. Their stuff just seems way overpriced to me. I hope that info was useful.
