I use a 3800w 220v element in an uninsulated keg for 14-15 gal boils- down to 12 gallons after boil. No controls, just plugged into the GFCI outlet.

Well on my preliminary run tonight I would barely call a boil what I got with 18g of water and a 5500 ULWD full on. Of course this is premature as I was doing a search to see what people have experienced. I'm thinking we may all have different ideas of what is considered a boil in brewing, but I kept my propane burner rolling a lot more than I was getting with the 5500.

5500 watts is 18778 BTU/Hr. How big is your burner?
