    I am souring a German wheat gose tonight with lactose thats on grains. Was looking for a large enough container to keep the mash at 118 for 48 hours, Could I use my kettle for this or is stainless not an appropriate container It will be wrapped in a blanket and sulifane will seal out oxygen while it sits on a heating pad.

    I've used my kettle for the sours I've done. You're going to be heating it to 212+, so any bad stuff is going to be killed before your next brew

    Lots of people sour in their kettle. Should work great.
