Re: Hotplate or open flame (part 2)
- Hello again, Sacker,
I bought mine at wally world. It's a single burner unit, 1000 or 1100
watts, I'm not sure which. Cost me about 10 usd. After heat loss (non-
insulated boiler, external heat source, ect.) works out to about 800
watts to the boiler. Slow, but makes good hooch. Again, you have to
bypass the thermostate inside ( call your sparky friend if you feel
unsure about doing it yourself). It's a 110 volt unit. Anougther way to
go is to salvage a burner out of an old electric stove, but you have to
build a sturdy tray for the boiler, isolated from the burner,
incorporating the reostate, yada yada yada. This would allow a quick
boil up, then you could turn it down to a slower boil. But, I babble.
You get the idea. Good luck.
Tip one, Morgan
