Hello all, I have been lurking on the site for a little while but haven't posted til now. I have a question now that i am about to drill into my kettles and want to make sure i do this correctly. I am running a 50Amp 4 Element panel and Spike Brewing 20Gal kettles and would like to run, or at least have the ability to run, dual elements in each kettle. At the current moment, the best solution i can see is to stack the elements, either together or 180 degrees off, in order to avoid interference. would this be ok , or is it best to run on the same level? I understand that this idea is a lot overkill, but i figure, why not. Any input in greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum!
Placement for a dual element setup isn't critical. As long as the elements are submerged and stay away from anything else you want to have in your kettle (ex: dip tube, Hop Stopper if in the boil, HERMS coil if in the HLT, etc) you're good to go. Make sure there's enough room on the outside too for the box.
Good luck and thanks again for your previous orders!

Kal, Thank you for the quick response. I thought i had responded back but was totally incorrect. I made all needed adjustments to make the dual elements work perfectly. Thank you for your help in this and for all the help your site has lent on this build.
