Invert sugar in the BK

I am working on brewing my first English ale and wanted to use invert sugar. I was considering making the invert sugar in my SS keg BK while I wait for my strike water to heat. I figured if i go modest with the heat there shouldn’t be too much risk with burning. Other than using a bit more propane any other negatives?

No, but sounds risky - as in, unlikely that you will not have some scorching. I would recommend making the invert on the stove in a clad-bottom pot and stirring the entire time. Do it while you wait for the coffee to brew.

I made mine on the stove, then placed into jars and pressure-cooked up to 14 psi, then leave in the cupboard for use when I needed it. I also did this with starter-wort. Very convenient.
