Using a 26 gallon beer brewing kettle to make cheese.
« on: Yesterday at 04:47:51 PM »
I need to make cheese in a little bigger fashion, but I don't have enough milk to buy the big equipment. My question is, would it be safe to use a stainless steel brewing kettle to make cheese in, or is there some reason it won't work? Also, what kind of burner would I use for a nearly 20" wide pot? Here is the kettle I was thinking of getting: http://morebeer.com/products/26-gallon-stainless-brew-kettle-heavy-duty.html 
and here's the burner: http://morebeer.com/products/camp-chef-burner-60000-btu.html

Has anyone tried this? I would appreciate any comments!
