I have a 7.75 gallons keg that I am going turn into a ekeggle and I was wondering what size element to use. It would have to be 120v as don't have 220v in the garage. Do I need to go with two elements? Thanks for the help.
There's a lot of testings on the forum here, but I think the general consensus is 2000W can only boil about 6gallons. So yeah, you might want to go with two elements.
Make sure you got 2 seperate 20A circuits in the garage for two 2000W elements. you cant run more than one per circuit.
Do you mean two separate outlets or two separate circuits in the breaker box?
two seperate circuits in the breaker box, a 2000W element will pull like 17 amps so you need two diffrent circuits or you'll trip the breakers.
I will check the box in the morning. I am pretty sure that I have two 20 amps curcuits in the box already. Thanks for the info.
I do have two 20 amp circuits in the box so I am good to go.
I am using (2) 1,650 watt elements so that I could use existing circuits that have fans & lights on them.
See my sig for the build.
Edit, I boil off 1 gallon per hour at 3,300 watts.
Is your breaker box in the garage? If so it would be very easy to add a 220 outlet. Otherwise you will want two separate 110 gfci circuits and two elements as stated before.
Single Vessel BIAB is all I need....Until we figure out the no vessel technique.
My breaker box is not in the garage. I only wish. I will look at your setup Disintegr8or.
