Default Tankless Water Heater for Sparge water?

I was thinking that the HLT could be replaced by a tankless water heater that can heat up to 170F. Shoot away.

It is going to be mighty expensive to find tankless waterheater with a 90 Degree F rise in temp provided your tap water is 80 degrees.

Yeah, lots of expense man, you might be better off making a rims element and controlling the flow rate to control temperature.

HLT is alot simpler.

There's a guy here in Portland who does it, he says you just have to be sure to get a gas one instead of electric, the electrics don't go up high enough. Says he loves his, though.

Do a search for flash boilers or steam generators. there is one in particular I was looking for to link but I cant seem to find it. kladue has made some impressive tankless heater/boilers.

Nah, electric or nothing. I have 220V 5 ft. from my brew area on my patio, so I was hoping to mount the thing there. Water is there, too.

Be careful with the higher powered Titan models. I'm guessing you don't have more than a 30A circuit on your patio.

70 A is a lot juice!
