I have to say this is Brilliant (with some tweaking) as others have harshly stated.

You have to start somewhere on any idea, I could see this working great, as a cheap electric brewing build, by adding a pot, temp controller and a shut off switch.

Thinking outside the box is a Great thing! If every inventor let the nay sayers stop them, we would still be living in caves, Keep it up.

Cheers

PM me if you would you like to participate in human trials. I'll send you a bottle.

Maybe I can get some money from the Federal Government to study it?

Believe it or not they did a study on the use of galvanized steel garbage cans as smokers.

Really, throw galvanized roofing material on a fire, and then come on here and call me stupid for boiling it?

I'm going back to my sewer fermenter and troll on in the darkness of ignorance

That's cool. You'll be amazed at the beer you can make with just a pot and a paint strainer.

Hmmmm....I wonder if I really need the paint strainer?

Good luck with your brews

Paint strainer is not necessary if you have a big colander and transfer to another pot for the boil. Been there done that.

Cheers

Yeah for the permanent setup

I'm thinking of putting the 2000w/120v in the turkey pot to cook rice for american beers

And the 5500w/240v in the keggle for BIAB

Buying propane is bringing me down.

Cheers!

Looks like an accident waiting to happen. Could you at least include a portable GFCI? $20 bucks at Lowes

I want to go on the record as saying this is awesome.

Could you fancy it up? (By which I mean, make it safe and reliable?) Of course. But what would be the fun in that? The challenge was to make a brew rig as cheaply as possible and this is pretty much as cheap as it gets.

Now, will it give your son cancer, or diabetes or glaucoma? Hell, I don't know, probably. But it's still cool as hell, and you know after a few batches he's going to start upgrading stuff anyway, as we all do. I say go for it. Unless it kills him, in which case I thought it was a bad idea all along.

Cheers!

Zinc seems to be very bad news . Noticed it is frowned upon in denture adhesives and other things .
Galvanized steel sure does put off a bad smell when burned .
You may have something here. Let me know as soon as you get that batch of zinc supplemented burnt galvanized smoke infused beer done as I would sure like some . Who needs smokey flavors from expensive barley when you can just pick up some old trash cans from the dump and burn them .

Adding pot is the main thing here . Although it was a thinking outside the box moment and useful to one who had little money to work with the bucket is just not good . Even a food grade bucket is probably not good to boil in . but sometimes you just got to do what you got to do to get it done .

Can I send some water to a lab to see if there's any zinc in it? I'll have to send a control sample as well.
