Gday brewers got the kettle out today to brew and this is moi Element
View attachment 24684
I thought oh gee a bit of build up on there.
I think it's lime scale or?
The water is pretty low in bicarbonates here which is what I believe would cause the whitish looking build up on the element.
Now I can remove it and give it a good scrub
Or can I just clean in place
Maybe some barkeepers friend or I do have some pool hydrochloric acid I could water Down 10:1 and soak the element in that for an hour...
A bit extreme that's how I clean my chlorinator on the pool...
Anyhow might be a useful discussion for electric brewing and how to clean your elements from time to time.
I usually just clean in place after brew day or next day after transfer with Brew cleaner Sodium percarbonate heat this till 50c and recirculate while I give everything a good scrub with plastic scrubbing brush then it's a hot rinse after this.
Storage is upside down air dry all valves open.
