A brew kettle is where you boil your beer ingredients. It’s made of stainless steel to ensure it doesn’t deteriorate from any of the beer ingredients you use. It generally has a spout for draining the liquid from the kettle and a lid. Most brew kettles have a 10-gallon to 16-gallon capacity, though some are as small as 2 gallons or as large as 55 gallons. The choice should be based on the amount of desired brew plus wiggle room to prevent the kettle from boiling over. Some have additional useful features like a thermometer and measure lines or a quantity gauge. Some are designed to be easy to clean. There are brew kettle sets with instructions and additional equipment for beginners.
