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.

Brewing a familiar Dark Mild later today. (hint: Was the bastard tired? Or was he run over by a tire (tyre). No one really knows). One thing for sure. It will be a treat when done. Cheers!
