Is it possible and safe to take an element from a house hold kettle and add it to a standard white bucket to try some basic all grain brew
Good to know I like to get things for free or make them from bits and bobs I have more fun to turn stuff around
As long as you can get under it to clean I guess it's fine.and don’t mount the element too close to the base.
Exactly! In the beginning i was getting some burnt taste to the beer due to the flour coming from the crushed grain getting on the elements while heating up the mash. This was easily corected by stirring a bit. Later when i added the pump the problem stopped alltogether. The machine works great, i usea hop spider now, but used hops socks before. The elements were like 7 quid from ebay, the two buckets i already had. The pump also very cheap from ebay. All in all a great machine for almost no money.Now that's the job exactly what I was hoping for
Exellent set up and minimal damage to wallet
