That is what I do. But I thought he mentioned in his post that he was using a Keggle...

He said he wants to sub sugar instead of dme which would raise the alcohol, not lower it. Right? I think a few people read it the other way around.

Already have a turkey fryer. If need be the father in law has 3 more. :) I plan on confiscating a couple of them once I get a couple more kegs and have my planned 3 keggle system.
Mind you I've seen the systems that B&S has, the stand with three burners built in, very nice! But for now the turkey fryers are free.
Anybody use a magnetic pump to move their beer around? Would like to get one of those eventually as well.

I guess my original post may have been confusing. I wanted to substitute DME for sugar I should have said, instead of sugar for DME. In the end I did 1/2kg DME and 1/2kg dextrose.
