I really have no idea what it was made of. I thought it was from Northern Brewer. Could have been another that came into my possession along the way. All I know is that it was caught on my element and had a burned hole in it.

Take it for what you wish.

I made my bags from an old curtain, I believe it said 100% polyester on it, but also never have problems with melting.

I had another of the same kind of bag melt. Could be cheap, could be a nylon-something else blend, I don't know. Regardless, that was the last of those bags and I have new ones that are supposed to be 100% nylon.

So, I take it that if I drop my copper immersion chiller in my new keggle with 5500 watt element, there is no danger of shorting anything out, or electric shock, if everything is grounded properly?

Right. The element in the keggle is the same as the element on top of an electric stove. I've tossed pans on those things without a second thought.
