Default Tomato sauce in brew pot

My roommate wants the real-deal pot for some nonsense he's making, can tomato sauce be concocted in my brew pot without adversely affecting my future brews or the pot itself? It is stainless steel. I'll search after I post 'cause I need to know quick. Thanks in advance brethren and sistren

I sure as hell wouldn't let something as acidic as tomato sauce in the same pot I brew my precious barley water in...Bar keeper's friend or not...I personally wouldn't risk it...Tomato sauce is acidic and, well I personally wouldn't do it...I have pots I cook in and I have pots I brew in...and I don't cross polinate them.

Send him over to the nearest Dollar General, he can get a 5 gallon stainless pot or under 10 bucks...(that's my stovepot brew pot)

Then he can make his killer sauces to his heart's content, and leave your sacred brew kettle alone.

Tomato sauce is usually in the 4.X range of pH so I wouldn't be worried about that, but I just don't know if I could do that. Tomato sauce in my brewpot... that's crazy-talk.

i like salsa. i like it a lot. i've made 10 gallons of salsa in my brew kettle countless times, boiled on my banjo burner, cleaned it out, and brewed in it the same night. zero issues. i've also made a batch of salsa extra thick, and thinned it out with my "death by dunkel" and had some yummy alcoholic salsa.

I dont think it would hurt your pot with proper cleaning. However, I guess it's the principle of the situation. Brewpot does not make sause.

TEN gallons of salsa countless times...Damn that is an impressive stat to keep on your bio. I also love salsa, but not sure what I would do w/ ten gallons? I'm a bit jealous of your salsa consumption.

we eat a lot of salsa, lol. plus i used to can it alot, and give it away to friends and family. now a days, i just make a few gallons at a time, and keep it in the fridge, and eat on it for a week, then make more the next week. we make home made tortillia chips every week too. buy one of those 100 packs of the little round corn tortillias, chop them i half, spray some butter on them, and cummin, and salt, put them on a baking sheet and throw em in the oven.

i'm pretty sure when i die, and they give me an autopsy, they'll find out that contrary to popular human belief, i'm in fact 80% beer and salsa instead of water, lol.
