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: The elements themselves cannot be bent or curved. To install more than one you will need to install one over the other higher up in your kettle.
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: I doubt it... I think most kettles are 7/8 ports - this element requires a 1.25 port. I used a 1.25 hole saw and put a port in my kettles lid (specifically for kettle sours - no mash/boil). Good luck
With the supplied nut and gasket would this work with a 1.37" diameter hole?
Tyler Buehler on Oct 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I struggled with whether to answer this question or not. My belief is that with the recommended hole size of 1.25 inches, which is what I used, that a larger diameter hole size might be prone to leaking.
Would this work with the grain father connect controller? I know the loads are about the same. Just wondering if it could physically plug into it?
Nick on May 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I can’t comment on its use with the GrainFather. I bought mine for use with an InkBird controller. As it turns out, that heating element was too long to fit into my brew kettle. I understand that straight elements like that one are less efficient than others that are s-shaped and that double back on themselves, creating more surface area in a more compact space. I bought it because it was affordable. I’ve kept mine for use with a larger diameter kettle when the need arises, or when I can find a weld-less fitting giving sufficient room for use with an existing kettle. I also have a couple of induction plates I use to heat strike and sparge water. Another resource is short circuited brewers on YouTube. Brian the host has a wealth of videos that assist with various brew systems and designs.

Heating element seems well made and installed easily in a Blichmann kettle. I did need to buy a 15 amp adapter to convert the computer style plug to a standard 120vac outlet.

Great Product!!!
Works really well I ordered the recommend hole saw but and I installed this element in about 2 minutes and had no leaks the first time I tested it. This is my first element in my system and it heat much faster than I expected.

Great low cost elements!
I put 2 in one 10 gal kettle stacked on top of each other, they get everything boiling in no time together! using 2 separate circuits of course. No rust just gotta clean after use.

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.
