Turkey fryer kit vs sanke keggle
 
I'm just looking at my options here, but which would you do? Looks like I can get a bayou classic turkey fryer kit for about $60 shipped, or maybe a $10 sanke keg from CL. I don't have a grinder, but wouldn't mind buying/renting one. If I went with keg then I would have to buy the burner and regulator separately and also wouldn't have a lid without some extra work. I'm leaning towards the keg.

id go with the keg. Keep watching CL for burners also, in my area they pop up from time to time

you still need a burner. I did both.

I'd say keggle simply because it likely holds a larger volume than the turkey fryer pot, and you'll probably want that extra capacity in the future.

Bought my bayou classic burner at goodwill for $15 and found a keg for $10. doesn't get much better than that. Check local thrift stores and be patient and you can save a ton.

I went with a turkey fryer kit, and used a converted keg.After my fryer stand hand a meltdown I decided that the turkey fryer was a waste of $40 I could have used on a burner and stand.

Holy Sh*t, did you turn that up to 11? I have a burner like that one and I had no idea that could happen, used mine now for several 10 gal batches. I need to move up my schedule for building a proper stand. Thats scary stuff there.

Once you go electric, you won't go back

one of my commerical brewing buddies has a small electric setup (1.5 bbl) and he dislikes it. He says he develops vegetal flavors he never had before with his propane setup. He got some investors and is upgrading to a 30 bbl steam jacketed setup. any one else noticed this?
