comment can i bottle cider at 150 sg it has been still for a month
Bottling something that's not even close to finished fermenting can lead to "explosive" pressures, commonly referred to as "bottle bombs".

Do you mean gravity readings of 1.190 and 1.150?

comment My beer has little to no hop flavour or bitterness. What is going wrong?
How much of each hop? What batch size? When you say "malt extract added after flameout", do you mean you boiled the hops in water, then added all the extract, or only a portion of it?

comment Using a pump for brewing
jsled.smugmug.com/Beer/Misc/i-g77WXRG/A is an older pic of my setup, which is more or less the same as recently, while recirculating for chilling: BK -> pump in -> pump out -> plate in -> plate out -> oxygenation rig -> filling tube.

comment Is there any electrical work required for using a pre-assembled heating element?
Sorry I didn't see your question a month ago. By "appropriately mounted", I mean with a water-tight mounting through the wall of the kettle, and a properly-grounded electrical connection both of the element and the kettle, as well. Also note that given the danger involved, you'll want to be running through some sort of GFCI at some point.
