Default Cooking food in wort pot?

If my wife cooked some food using the pot that I normally use for cooking my wort, should I be scared? Will it leave any off flavors in my future beer? Or as long as I clean it well should it be ok?

I brewed my first beer in my stew pot. It was not a brew pot..it was a stew pot only. My current brew pot is a former turkey fryer pot...used.

I think as long as you clean it you'll be alright.

I made tamales in mine around Thanksgiving last year. I think the beer I brewed right after that was another batch of strawberry blonde. No off flavors to speak of. Of course I did clean my equipment obsessively, just like I do every batch.

This about it this way... If you use a pot to make chili in one night and then a week later you make chicken soup, does your chicken soup taste like chili? Metals don't really absorb and transfer things like that if you just make sure to clean them properly in between.

Now, if she used a plastic ale pail for something else, I'd be a bit nervous.

I say brew a beer and send samples to everyone on the forum for tasting to make sure there are no "off flavors"...
