I'm looking to upgrade to an all grain setup and have two equipment questions:
I know ideally I'd have two big (~10g) kettles for heating mash/sparge water and for a boiling kettle but I already have a cheap 4g pot that came with my brewing kit. My question is--for single infusion can I get away with just buying one ~10g pot in conjunction with the 4g? I was thinking I'd heat the brewing water in the big pot, mash in, drain into the big pot, and heat the sparge water in the 4g. Does that sound reasonable (at least for the time being)?
Secondly, I know this has been talked about but can I manage this setup without a turkey fryer? I have a big oven, I think around 15,000-1,800 BTU. Don't mind waiting a little longer for things to heat up
