Default Will this work? Thoughts.

http://beertribe.com/forum/index.php?topic=1278.0

I am looking to make a electric brew pot, because I live in an apartment. Will this work? Would the glue be bad for the beer? Whats your thoughts.

Looks sketchy. I'm no electrician though.

Probably should research whether boiling water in plastic will leach components of the bucket into your brew.

HDPE has a working temperature of 212 degrees F - 220 degrees F under low load conditions and it may be autoclaved at sterilizable temperatures. From what I understand low load means it can maintain that tempter for up to 120 minuets constantly with out any brake down of the bucket. In this case a person should be able to maintain a 60 min boil without any off flavors as long as the tempter was kept at 212.

It also says they can be sterilized which would be temps of 121–132 °C (250–270 °F) for 60 minutes or 134 °C (273 °F) for at least 18 minutes with out plastic brake down. So bringing water to a boil for 60 min should not harm the liquid inside the bucket. I don't know about the PVC and Glue that guy is using that cant be good in the boil.

Problem is, the max service temp for PVC is 140 deg.

I might make some of these or just figure out another way to mount the water heating element without using P.V.C. Any ideas?
