No not yet, while I live in a townhouse w/ a walkout basement which would be a great spot. I had to make a few concession with SWMBO. Once i win her over and prove it ain't all that bad then possibly in the future I will will get into a bit bigger and more powerful set-up, but for now i'm limited.
I guess a 1500W element would be a nice booster. I still have to cehck the outlets in the kitchen. But if a 2000W would be able to boil 3-4 gals (for a 2.5 gal batch) I could avoid the kitchen and the SWMBO altogether and stay in the basement. I do have a 20A GFCI outlet next to my breaker box in the basement So I could run atleast 1 2000W, Or get an electrician in to hook up a 240v down there, but that's xtra $$ that i feel is unnessecary at the moment.
I'm still searching and searching all the possible threads. I want to get all my eggs in a basket and test run everythinig but getting into a brew and having that oh sh** moment.
thanks for the input so far fellas
