Hey guys, Ive got alot of corrosion going on with my boil pot element. It doesnt seem to be getting too much worse but every now and then another piece comes away. It appears to be an outer layer. It works well but ,will it crap out because of it in the end.? And, should I replace it?. It is a water heater by design, so im not sure why its done it, maybe next time i should get a stainless one. Cheers

Looks to me just build up of malt scorching not the copper element breaking up. mine use to do the same you can give it a good soak then go to town with some sort of scouring pad and it will come up brand new.

Yeah you might not get it all off but just give a maintenance scrub every couple of brews to keep it building up excessively.

Have you tried this and if so what do you think?

I just watched Dr Hansbrewery on youtube about not using no chill cubes to no chill. He leaves the wort in the brewing system and instead of transferring it to a cube he covers it with glad wrap and lid to cool down and then transfer to a fermenter.

Hey Gash, I’m currently brewing an ESB. I think my grain was milled too fine because Inseem to have more trub that I usually do? I’m thinking of racking to a secondary fermenter. When is the best time to do that please? It’s day 4 SG 1.022
