You'd need at minimum a 220v 30amp circuit, preferably with a GFCI breaker. If you wanted everything in the same control box, you'd probably want larger than a 30amp circuit. Additionally, if you're using one in a HLT, or want to control boils, you'd need PIDs, SSRs and thermocouples.

Go check out this great resource maintained by Kal from the forums:

I love my all electric and doubt I'll ever move to anything else, but fair warning: its not the cheapest of systems to build.

Would it be too much trouble to measure the overall length of the element?

I want one, but something suddenly came up with the dogs, so I might have to use a munch of my brewing money this weekend. I'll let you know.
