It was a 1.040 wort after boil with only an ounce of pellets. The elements were from two different manufacturers and they both scorched, one was worse than the other.

Thanks for the information, were the elements caked with a white or black debris? My burnt batch tasted very burnt, i fermented it and upon tasting I tossed it out and cut my losses.
How long a boil?
BIAB or MT?
Curious if your wort had a ton of trub or not? I've also heard seldom reports of scorching with ULWD elements, but it is rare as well.
