Lets see...you posed a question "whats the difference if the outlet is 5 or 50 feet away?" And I provided a simple, fact based answer to your question. Then, because you are clearly some genius engineer, you felt the need to go off on me for simply providing a fact based anwer to the question you posed. You are nothing but a pompous jerk who always has to be "right" and have the last word. Have a nice day.

PM each other if you want to continue arguing. None of us are interested. Now back to the thread that is going to end up costing me two grand.

Are there replacement elements available for it and are they standard? Also, if I got the 50L could I then use the Shortened Mash Pipe to brew bigger beers over 1060?

Good question, I don't think this has been covered in the forum. (replacement heating element).
You might have to check with the distributer..

I have the 20L and haven't had an issues brewing beers up to 1.074 ish... I haven't tried anything bigger as of yet.

I haven't run the numbers yet but I am planning to do a barley wine soon and thought that I will just cut my final volume back to about 2 1/2 gal and up the grain bill. Anything wrong with this idea?
Having been kegging for the last 3 years I shudder at the thought of bottling again but with all of the 1l bottles I have know it shouldn't be so bad. Or maaybe I'll find a 2 1/2 gal cornie under the tree.

are you going to try to mash in a low volume? you need enough water for the mash and then end up at 9.5L after the boil. the minimum to circulate the mash depends on how much grain is in the tube, so let's say you need 16 liters of water to circulate? i'm not super confident on that number, just kind of thinking out loud. then don't sparge and collect 11 liters?, boil down to 9.5?,,, could work.... but i think you are limited by 1. minimum amount of water needed to circulate and 2. amount of grain you can cram in and still get good circulation. point 1 depends on point 2, and point 2 depends on the grain itself, the crush, and probably the mash chemistry.

thanks dinnerstick, I had thought that I would just boil down to my final volume. I expect this may cause some flavour issues (camelization ?) but not sure.
