I acquired a 40 gallon SS steam jacketed kettle that I intended to use as a boil kettle or mash tun. However, I am having a hard time figuring out how to heat it. It came out of a commercial kitchen that had used a steam generator to heat it. I don’t have a steam generator and using fire to heat it doesn’t work that well.
It is a beautiful piece of equipment; all stainless with a tilting mechanism and 2” valve in the bottom of the kettle. It has a lid that fits really nice, though there is no seal on it.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to use it? If I can’t figure out a good use for it I am afraid I am going to have to let it go. It is a monster to be sitting in my garage not getting used.
