I am wondering about the following: using the 28 qts. electric turkey fryer for heating both mash and sparge water...then using propane for the final 60 min. boil????? This would reduce amount of propane....I recently paid $15 for a refill....and I could do the mash indoors during the winter. If it would take an hour to get to mash and or sparge temps...not a problem. First hour would be preparation...second hour would be the 60 min. mashing time. One electric turkey fryer would restrict one to 5-6 gallon batches most likely... Comments and suggestions.

Don't really have any comment on your idea, except, give it a shot.

Mainly wanted to say welcome to the board Patrick.

There are many that use the electic elements (as from a water heater) to do just what you are suggesting (as well as the boil), so I would think an electric turkey fryer would work ok. Perhaps if you already have a larger mash tun/boil kettle, you could check out the aforementioned electric heating elements and do larger batches too...

Prost!

Looking forward to deep-frying a 23# bird tomorrow! :-)
