I am currently lusting after denimglen's hot water urn.

Unfortunately, it seems like hot water urns are hard to come by in the US.

I did a quick search when I first posted in this thread to see if I could find something in the states but didn't have much luck as I don't know the kind of stores that would sell them.

They seem to go by the name 'Tea Urns' and sometimes 'Coffee Urns' over there, maybe try searching under that name instead if you haven't already?

Maybe try resturant/catering supply stores?

There are a few companies that will import "hot water urns" from England or Austrialia.

The real thing is that the restaurant business in the US just doesn't need hot water urns. Very few people drink hot tea, and coffee makers are designed to brew coffee, not just heat up water. Typically, the coffee vendor will take responsiblity for placing the coffee maker, keeping it working, and providing coffee for it.

It's unfortunate, because those hot water urns seem like they would make a handy HLT.

As David_42 recommended above, how about brewing smaller batches (2.5-3.0 gallons)? Maybe you can keep the lid partially covering the aluminum pot?

So I need to find a way to do it with electricity
This is kind'a a dead thread, but whatever.... If you have access to your circuit breaker, you can check what kind of electrical outlets are available. Having a 240V plug, allows electric brewing by installing an electric heating element similar to a hot water heater. The capitol investment would be larger than gas. I am considering it just for the worry free control.
