Cool idea.

That did cross my mind. But I am stubborn and figured the amount of any 'death dealing' substances or off flavors would be infinitesimally small.(woo, my big word for the day)

As for movement of the element, I have to force it to move. I am guessing the rubber gasket is helping to eliminate movement.

If I have room, I may use outer o-ring plus silicone nipple gasket as a precaution. But I'll coat the threads with PTFE or silicone to keep the liquid on the inside, and out of contact with the stock o-ring.

Thanks again.

I tried the nipple gasket idea last night but has some leaks. The larger baby bottle nipples I got had extra silicone on the base making it hard to get a flush seal even after trimming with scissors. They were the perfect size though. My holes in my kettle aren't perfect either thanks to the damn hole saw walking.

I ended up using the bf o-rings and lock nuts, plus I put ptfe tape on the threads and lined the hole with silicone sealer. Boil tested 6.5 gallons today with no leaks.

I did use a piece of baby bottle nipple for the ground lug and it sealed without leaks.

Default Added False Bottom in Place of Basket

Just posted a new thread about this false bottom I purchased for my BIAB system.

I noticed that you used a fuse but no resistors with your emergency stop button, have you had any problems with that? I know others have talked about it in other threads but wanted to know how it worked for you.
