Default Turkey fryer

Hey everyone. I have a turkey fryer and want to start brewing outdoors since summer has finally arrived. I keep reading that everyone lee swaying to go all grain and start brewing outside. I am not quite ready for that since I am still a noob! Is it ok to brew extractor partial mash kits outside? I assume that it is and that I am reading too much onto it all. Thank you everyone!!!!!!!!!

I only brew extract for now and I always use the turkey fryer outside.

I just moved to all grain, it's not rocket science, you just need to have a bit more equipment

I wouldn't see why you couldn't brew outside. just as long as you can hit all the temps you need with whatever you're using. I'm going to start collecting all my gear for all grain soon so I will grab up a turkey fryer and start brewing outside.

I have only brewed in my turkey fryer outside in the 90+ degree heat (Louisiana). So far my brews have turned out great.

I steeped my grains inside, got the water going outside. I just switched to BIAB, which is just a big partial mash

After my first batch in the house the wifey made such a fuss about the smell in the house I have since brewed all beers outside partial mash and extract havent done AG yet but I have no problems brewing outside. Matter of fact I prefer outside.
