Re: [new_distillers] Re: Thinking of going to an electric burner
- I replaced the 120V element in my water heater boiler with a 208V 2500W unit. My effective wattage is around 1440, It is over twice as long as the original one, so lots more surface area. I have had no issue at all with burnt grain wort in it. It takes 3 gallons to reach the hole in the side of the 20 gallon heater, so I never put less than 6 gallons of liquid in it, generally I shoot for 8.> I have a 1000watt hot plate that I picked up from Walgreens for only US9.99. It worked flawlessly for my water-test.
