Steeping grain. Boiling hops.

Think it will bring water to a boil?

If the temperature controller is accurate and precise, you could probably use it for BIAB mini-mashes.

It might bring water to a boil, but it's not going to be any better than your stove, and in fact will probably be worse since it runs on household 110V AC.

If it can heat water to 150-170 and then boil it, I think I can be happy.

I need a porch steeper/boiler so I wont stink up the house.

I suspect it's control at lower temperatures is poor at best. Get it, test it out, and post up. Plus, it's probably made/designed, to heat a bird, NOT be filled with water, and then have grain added. That alone could be more weight than it can handle, causing it to fail in a horrible way (well, horrible for your batch that is).

Going too simple here... They work great for turkeys (my gf's family cooks their thanksgiving turkey in one of theses) but your bound to have more problems trying to brew beer with it than its worth. Keep in mind during your "boil" you dont want the lid on it, which also means this wont retain heat as well and will likely over work itself while under producing

27 dollars, I already bought it. It is bigger than the slow cookers at 18 quarts and cheaper.

I am gonna go on a limb and claim that if it bakes at 400 then it must get at least hot enough to boil liquid.

I will test it out soon.

Probably will make a wort then just freeze it for when Im ready.

OP, I guess you'll be the one to say if it worked or not. Good luck! Please post back with the results.
