      And it won't make a hefty power bill.  Power bills are paid on kw hours.  5500 watts for a shorter amount of time is the same price as 1500 watts for a longer amount of time.  The energy needed to do the work (heat up the wash, vaporize the spirit) is the same regardless of how long it takes to do it.

      I don't know much about power supplies in the US, but 5.5kW heating at 220V will require in the order of 25 amps. That is a substantial amount of current and beyond most domestic situations unless there is a special high-power installation. Expect a hefty bill.

      Order an inexpensive 5500W heating element ...of course you will need 220 power supply. That will heat 7 gallons in just a few minutes.
