Hey all I was wanting to know if I can use a turkey fryer as a brew kettle?
Some people prefer not to use aluminum. I think there are steps to season aluminum if that is what you have. Basically you just have to fill it up and boil water to clean it. If you have a stainless steel one you are golden. If it has a thin bottom, which all the turkey fries I have seen do, be careful when adding malt or surgar. Keep stirring so you don't scorch the wort.
Thanks. I have a feeling if i get into it more ill probably buy a brew kettle, but for now ill make fo with what i have haha
I'm one of those who prefer not to use aluminum. Aluminum is very reactive compared to Stainelss which is pretty inert and has been liked possibly to alzheimers. I stick to stainless and use Sankey kegs (legally obtained) which I modify as needed. I use a verticle layout with three kegs one of which has a flase floor (stainless also). I make mostly IPAs using all grain methods. I like my brews, others do to or else they are too polite to say (knowing my friends thats not likely).
