Default Help! Brining Turkey In Ale Pale!! Bad Idea For Future Use??

Alright, sorry if this is the wrong forum mods, but it does have to do with homebrew equipment.

Anyways, we're trying to brine our turkey for tomorrow and we don't have a cooler to do so. do you think I could put the RAW turkey and a couple of gallons in an ale pale and re-use it for brewing or will it be tainted or something by the raw meat?

Thanks a lot guys and happy turkey day,
J

I'd use my kettle before I used a fermenter.

At least the kettle could be boil sterilized prior to re-use for beer.

I wondered the same thing, but decided to just spend the $4 on a 5 gallon bucket at Wal-Mart. you can find them in the paint dept. I'm sure Lowes or Home Depot will have the same.

Guilty....

I cleaned it out very well after, and wahsed it with sanitizer.

While I wouldn't suggest it, it works in a pinch (ie, 10PM Wednesday night).

I need to brine a 15 lb turkey with about 2 gallons of brine. a 5 gallons cylindrical cooler would be awesome right now.

me = cheapo.

Big enough to carefully line a 6 gallon fermenter and ferment 5 gallon of beer inside. But they sweat.
