Rob, cheers for that, you are de man! That burst fire thing sounds as good as one of my rifles! Burst Fire? Like semi-auto right?:)
My Damson is already on made it 30.8.05 - did I beat you? - used Gordons I admit :( and the sloes? Well, a bit of frost and yes, we are in business. Can't beat it on a frosty day with the log burner going....

I'm using a sutronics burst-fire controller:
30 quid+vat. you need to make a box for it with a
metal top plate to act as heatsink. Brill!
Then you can just get a couple of old fashioned kettle
elements (with full screw assembly) of 1800-2400 (what
ever is cheapest) and you get full smooth control of
one from 0-100% (unplug the other when you get to
Can't remember the postage, but was UK. The guy was
pretty clued up on why that particular model was
flying off the shelves!
p.s. you're in warmer climbs (just) than me, but watch
out for tail ends of sloes, very ripe bullaces (look
like a cross between a sloe and a damson) and maybe
damsons. 4+ lb per gall + sugar to 1090 then distil!
