      If you run a 1500W 110V element you don't even need a controller as it will barely warm up 8gal milk can in 2 hours for a run to the required 193F to distill.. it will then take another 2-3 hours to finish it off to the 206F for the tails!!!   I do it all the time.. leave it on high till temps are reached and run is done! The control is useless for a 1500W system!!

        Can anyone help with Ideas on immersion element heat control? I am    converting a 7 gallon keg and will use a 2000w heat source(hot water tank    element). A regular dimmer switch is only rated for 600w. The 2000w element is    210v. I am not that techy so any help would be great!
