    As the title says, I was wondering if anybody else here has found uses for brew gear outside the brewery? I have seen many threads about how people have used non brewing equipment to brew, but never the other way around. For instance, I have used my stir plate to make Jello (why stand there and stir when the machine can do it while I do other things), I routinely use my 36" stainless brew spoon to make huge pots of chili, and I use my kettles and burner as a water bath for canning homemade jam.

    I've used brew pot for chrissy puddings.
    Definitely helped out myself and family/friends with some great stainless cleaning and other cleaning through brew cleaners.

    The whole lot, including refrigerators but excluding burner: wine, mead and cider. Smaller equipment: kombucha, root beer, sodas. Most of the gear works as general kitchen equipment.
