While advertised with a length of 11.5 inches, can someone tell me the length of the element from inside the vessel wall to the tip?
David Petri on Feb 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi David - The length of the element from inside the vessel wall to the tip is 11.5" long.
Can these be bent to provide a way to install 2 elements in a kettle?
Tyler Greaves on Mar 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: My immediate thought is that these cannot be bent. Without an x-ray machine it is hard to tell if the heating element is centered in the thermowell part of the assembly. If it is, then bending the probe/element could provide a severe electrical hazard. My keggle is a standard Sanke Keg, but you must have a smaller diameter keg.
Can this be used in a boil kettle or is it just for sparge/strike water?
David price on Oct 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: David, I put 2 of these elements in a single vessel BIAB system. One is powered directly to a 110v outlet and the other is connected to a controller. I do 5 gallon batches but am doing a full boil (6.5 gal). I find that one element struggles to get a rolling boil. The second element is running 60-75% depending on volume.
Does this fit on the holes that comes in a SS Brewtech kettle?
Michael Ferguson on Jun 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It doesn’t fit the pre drilled ones but ssbrewtech does sell a drill bit that fits this. So you can drill your own.

Heats up almost as quickly as my 220v unit. Can boil 9 gallons of water in about 70 minutes.

Great element, very efficient.
Was able to fit this in a 10 gal Bayou Classic kettle but just barely, if you opt for this make sure you drill ABOVE the 1.5 gallon rim line. I was able to get it to fit but I dont think I could get it back out.

I brew half batches and keg 3 gallons so this is perfect for me. No issues holding a vigorous boil and 2 layers of reflectix gave me about 3-3.5 degree rise per minute. I have a custom flase bottom for my BIAB setup so I cant comment if it would burn your bag but I imagine it would.

Qulity product.
I have purchased a similar product from a lesser quality source. I actually bought 3 of them, and the power cord broke from flexing after a while on all 3.

Tired of doing that and the associated risk of getting shocked, I bought the MoreBeer product. EXCELLENT quality and design! If I had done this first, then I would have a better engineered product.

Simple but Effective
I have run this a for a couple of tests. It has performed just as I had hoped. My hope is that it will last and I won't have any rust issues.

SS Heating Element
Hooked it up to a 110v motor controller so i could control heat output. Works very well to hold a desired temp in a fermentation tank.

Gets the Job Done
I use this in conjunction with my Bayite Controller designed to handle the 1600w 110v element.

Doesn't get the full 5 gallon boil to full rolling boil. (Made 209 F) but does move the wort enough to mix it up. Made a good Amber Ale with it and looking forward to more brewing with my new system.

Gets me out of the kitchen!!

It's Rusty!!!!
Given to me as a gift, so I happily punched a huge hole (larger than normally needed for others that I researched) and used it ONCE to heat reverse osmosis water to 165F for about 2 hours for my mash and this happened. It rusted like an antique car! Emailed More Beer a week ago and still no response. I give it 2 stars instead of 1 because it did heat well. Keep in mind you'll have to purchase the cord for about $5 to convert to 110v, but at this rate it'll become oxidized dust soon. Morebeer great on grain, hops, etc but don't think I'll be buying anymore equipment from them.
