Hi all, thanks for adding me to the group. I'm new to electric brewing. I just built a EBIAB system. I noticed after my 4th batch with the new system that the coating on the electric element is wearing off. Most of the element looks like copper now. Is this normal/safe? _________________ Stephen

I would recommend using our heating elements that are made for brewing. The heating rods are made from 804 stainless (stronger than shiny 304/316 stainless) and they also have a stainless base instead of iron so they will not rust without you having to use a sacrificial anode.
