Check out this great thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/squa...ctures-144764/

I think he's running two 5500s in a 55g boil kettle. My gut tells me that you will find the ramp up slow with your proposed set up. It will boil, but you'll be waiting. Does this help?

Great spreadsheet chuckO, thank you very much.
I share the brew with friends and we share coasts for grain, hops and energy and I brew 2 times a month max. It is also a pilot brewery for a maybe future production brewery, but I am not sure I will be going the pro way yet.
I was reviewing the electrical needs and I will go with 2 x 5500W on each kettle, HTL and Boil. I will have a 3 phase brand new installation just for the brewery and I think it will handle them all right.
I am attaching a pic of my system. All kettles have conical bottoms for easy emptying and the boil kettle has a connection on the bottom and a little above the cone to let the trub behind and a hop dam.
Tks for all the help so far.
