My father-in-law is coming over early to smoke us a turkey. Thought I'd pickup a Brewers Best kit to give me something to do while we wait. Anyone else?

Brewing a winter ale on Thursday, and driving out to an apple farm on Saturday to pick up 5 gallons of pressed apples to make cider.

I'm brewing thursday. Some kind of APA.

trying to figure out what I can cook, foodwise. I don't have much room in my kitchen and don't want to be in there all day with beer/food. But I would like to do something a little nicer then a can of black beans. Maybe I'll do biscuits and gravy.....

I'll be frying a turkey in my BK on turkey day.

Then bottle 5 gals of apfelwien and 5 gals of haus pale ale on Friday.

Then brew a 5 gal batch of IPA using my same BK on saturday. It will probably get named TIPA (Turkey IPA)... :D

I am not sure how much time I'll have this weekend. We are going away on Thursday and probably staying till Sat morning. I might be able to brew Sat. afternoon or Sunday, but have no plans made so far. I am interested in brewing an IPA or a Blonde. I have crushed grains for that blonde, so I may as well use them.

Hopefully brewing on Sat. - EdWort's Brewery IPA.... for my brother's visit at Xmas. (Pushing the done-ness envelope a bit.)

I plan on frying a turkey as well. Any problem using the same brew pot to fry a turkey? Don't want turkey flavored beer the next time I brew...
Well there's some debate as to whether or not there will be enough residual oil left in the pot to affect the beer's head retention. I don't feel like taking any chances so my kettle is a dedicated brew kettle and I'll be using another pot my brother borrowed from his restaurant.

I have done it. Absolutely no problems. Assuming aluminum: wash it with a green scrubby, hot water, and dawn; soak it with hot PBW (not oxiclean); rinse well; boil some water in it to re-establish the oxide layer. If you see a sheen, you did not get all the oil out.

Brew day started at 9am. Mashed in at 10:30. 42 lbs of grain! My biggest grain bill yet. We had turkey day last night. Ground the grain last night as well. Hoping to have it in the carboys early today.
