After 3 heating elements, and a little bit of scorched honey, I regret my purchase. Ended up drilling holes in the skirt and running 3/8 " pex in the bottom skirt just to warm honey enough to bottle.

Just don't... but do as you please.

I had a 30 gal dadant it was to big for me so I got the keg a couple years ago easy to clean and store but a year after I had it the heat element went out they did replace it it will scorch honey you have to keep it full about 15 gal now if I only put in 10 gal or less I only heat it a day and bottle what I need and unplug it when I got mine I think it was a little over 400. now they are 589. and the 16 gal water jacketed bottler is 1445.

I am looking into possibly purchasing the Mann Lake honey keg and was wondering if anyone has used it and is it worth the money?
We purchased one and the teflon tape from the threads, the lithium grease on the honey gate wound up in our honey...we had a 15 gallon loss of honey to include the jars....very dissatisfied...sending it back for a refund...
