I already have a IC. My partial boil gets cold very fast lol.
Outdoor brewing is not much of an option for me, specially during winter.
So a full boil for a 6 GAL batch might be too long to do on a stovetop? Damn.
I was already thinking getting an electric heater (I heard some people use hot water tank heater elements). Propane is also not much of an option if I really plan to always brew inside.
