    Hi everyone,
    I acquired a keg modified with welded tap, thermometer and 1200w electric element (which I don't think is welded in) today. It also came with a wort chiller.
    Problem is the element is too high in the keg. When boiling, the water needs stirring to ensure it's evenly heated.
    It's also too high if I only want to mash 25ish litres. And too high to use the chiller effectively or use a biab, which is what I was going to use.
    What are some options? I thought a pump to revirculate but that doesn't help the height of the element.
    Anyone know a way I can fill the hole to fit the element lower? It was cheap so I could also just cut the element off inside and use a gas burner.

    Getting it welded up at an engineerkng / fabrication shop would be cheap, cheaper if you know someone who can weld.
    You could weld a fitting in the hole and use it for a temp probe or sight glass?
