is it safe to cook lobsters in my brew kettle
 
My wife is the demanding that we cook lobsters in my brew kettle because it will fit like 10 of them at once.... will this be detrimental to my beer?

Just wash it well after words ... I use mine for boiling large quantities of corn on the cob when family/friends are over. I just use some Oxiclean free to wash it very well and the rinse it very well

I'm no expert but I don't see why it would. A good scrub right after to limit any odors followed by standard cleaning- PBW & Starsan, etc will finish off any lingering odors I imagine...

Make a beer with the lobsters!

I'd say the Starsan would just be a waste, no need to sanitize a kettle. Just wash it like it's any other dish and it'll be fine.

The only pots/pans I have that carry over flavors from one meal to another are my cast iron skillets...

To directly answer the question in the title of the thread: no it's not safe, they can pinch you :p

I did it on Valentine's day. No ill effects, although it does take a good scrub to get the nasty brown stuff and any scalded seaweed off of the bottom.

You are going to need a bigger mill for this. :p

As long as you are not boiling the lobsters in a batch of beer, you should be fine.

Not according to Dogfish Head.
