I think if I have this system and decide to do a double IPA or something, I'd want to mash for at least 90 minutes, if not a couple hours.
I consistently get 80%+ on my system. Today I did Orfy Mild and got 83%. Always 60 min mash. I think your crush and water chemistry make a bigger difference than BIAB, or so I've read. I use a cheap corona mill and RO water with added salts and acid malt.

Well, that's what I thought more than a month ago but since then I've been doing a lot of reading and research, asking a lot of question on this forum and pricing out parts and now I think I might just be about ready to go. I have only a little electrical experience but think I'm ready to go here. Got a few parts for Christmas, ordered a few more and have some odds and ends to pick up at home depot but I'm gonna give it a go.

that's kinda weird. have you checked in your line voltage to your power supply?

if all else fails - you could set it on the stove top for a little help.

This is actually what I am planning on doing. Figure it will speed things up even if the element is enough to boil
