Brew day went well, everything works as planned! On my old RIMS element - a 4500w foldback running on 110V - the caramelized sugars wouldn't adhere to it and "Season" onto the burner.
The new element - a 2000W LWD running at 240 - had a hard candy-like crust build-up on it which wouldn't come off with my scotch-brite pad that I use to clean up.
I didnt notice any burnt smells in the wort or it being any darker than normal - Is this "seasoning" on the element ok?
