    KK Element Hole

    Wanting to remove the ratshit KK element from my kettle and probably use it as a mash tun. Need advise on filling the 32mm hole. Can you buy a plug? just incase I want to change it back at some stage.

    Care to check my shopping list for an STC-1000 build?

    Is there a problem with the Kegking units on ebay(actually from WA???) for $57 ? Seems a lot of dicking around to save a few $ not to mention safety issues with backyard electricians.
