Default turkey fryer

Hello to all, I boiled my first wort a couple of weeks ago in the kitchen. My wife says I can't do that anymore. Her comment, " the house smells like a brewery". My comment, "good, I must be doing something right". Anyway, you can figure out what her next comment was. My question is can I use the pot to my turkey fryer. I have washed it several times and used bleach, but I still smell peanut oil. will it effect my beer? Thanks, Beermedic

I doubt you can ever remove the taint of 350 degree turkey oil - you're halfway there, either get a new pot or wait until you see the set on sale and ante' up for a new one - last fall my local Menard's had the entire thing on sale for $19 on two occasions.............

Skol!

A new pot is the way to go. Use whatever you used in the kitchen until you find one. It's like trying to use a pickle bucket as a fermentor, they're free, but a pickle bucket is a pickle bucket forever.

Find a style of beer that you like that goes with nuts and experiment.

The burner may be smaller than some would like @51,000BTU, but it managed my last two AG batches rather well.

I *just* bought a 28-quart electric turkey fryer at Home Depot, manager's special for $69 (regular is $99). I'm stoked. I really like that it IS electric rather than propane, so that I can use it inside when it's cold or raining, or I can set it up on the deck when it's nice out. I'll have to see how well it works, but it's designed to bring oil up to around 400 degrees, so it shouldn't have any problems maintainin a roiling boil for five gallons of wort!

SCORE!

If I wanted to go propane, that's what I would have purchased. I wanted to go electric to leave myself more brewing options in the winter - don't want to have to postpone brew day (after looking forward to it all week) because there's a blizzard outside, or because it's ten below. I just need to design a wort chiller that I can hook up to either the hose outside or the sink.

I don't know, brew one up, see how Turkey flavored beer tastes! If you start now you'll definitly have it ready in time for the holidays. You could even skip the turkey and go straight for the beer.
