So naturally, leaks will happen. I have very slow leaks in both my mashtun (10 gal Igloo cooler with ball valve etc) and brew kettle (ten gal stainless with ball valve etc.)

Now here's my question...i bought high temp teflon tape to seal up the mash tun, but is it ok to use it on the INSIDE of the kettle? It'll get really hot, but i assume it will be fine.

Thoughts?

Teflon is good to 450 degrees F.
