OK, searched and didn't find where anyone else has asked these questions regarding E-Keggles:

What, if any, precautions or special procedures are required for cleaning an E-Keggle after the brew session?

Does break material and/or hops stick to the heating elements?

Any issues whirlpooling? I would expect that a bottom/center-mounted element would work better for whirlpooling than a lower/side mount.

Thanks in advance!

Cleaning the E-keggle is similiar to cleaning any boil vessel.

Not really, my elements seem to get a white chalky deposit that is easily removed w/ a bit of scrubbing.

Any issues whirlpooling? I would expect that a bottom/center-mounted element would work better for whirlpooling than a lower/side mount.

Never done it...I would imagine the element would partially impede the whirlpool...could probably still be done??
