Now, high density elements will scorch the mash. Grain even sticks to the elements and burns, I have had that happen.
Awesome! Thanks for the help. Time to go shopping and building.

I'll try to provide updates.

I use 2x 2000 w elements from HD. I think they were $11. Only scorched once when I didn't turn off heaters and added DME. Even so it didn't effect taste. The think the scorching scare was started by people not trying actually use electric heating.

Yeah, just like using gas, you want to turn off the heat when you add extract.

I had a time getting some LME off the tip of an element once.

What I think happened with the "scorching scare" was people saying not to use HD elements in the mash, and somebody took that to mean in the boil.
