So i received a large amount of brewing equipment secondhand and in that cache of brew weapons was a screwplug immersion heater for a 75gallon hlt. It looks to be exactly the same as this from mcmastercarr
there was a severe crack on the bottom of the element. so i get trigger happy and started soldering on a patch....but I have no idea whether or not what i used is brewing safe
. I feel completely retarded at this point because I dont know if this element was worthwhile to start with and i might have just made it worthless.
Does anyone know if there are safe solders for this application? or am I just screwed?
