Alright, sorry if this is the wrong forum mods, but it does have to do with homebrew equipment.

Anyways, we're trying to brine our turkey for tomorrow and we don't have a cooler to do so. do you think I could put the RAW turkey and a couple of gallons in an ale pale and re-use it for brewing or will it be tainted or something by the raw meat?

Thanks a lot guys and happy turkey day,
J

I'd use my kettle before I used a fermenter.

At least the kettle could be boil sterilized prior to re-use for beer.

I wondered the same thing, but decided to just spend the $4 on a 5 gallon bucket at Wal-Mart. you can find them in the paint dept. I'm sure Lowes or Home Depot will have the same.

Guilty....

I cleaned it out very well after, and wahsed it with sanitizer.

While I wouldn't suggest it, it works in a pinch (ie, 10PM Wednesday night).

I need to brine a 15 lb turkey with about 2 gallons of brine. a 5 gallons cylindrical cooler would be awesome right now.

me = cheapo.

Big enough to carefully line a 6 gallon fermenter and ferment 5 gallon of beer inside. But they sweat.
