If you've ever tossed a metal pot or pan onto an electric stove, you've probably been closer to doing damage to an element. Those stovetop elements are the same thing as what is in an ekeggle.

I was actually thinking of the same thing, which is scary because as a child I put a pot of water on the stove to make oddles-of-noodles. I apparently broke the element as I sat in my living room I watched a shower of spark shoot out of my kitchen, my response was to run out of the house luckily I didn't burn the house down but it put a huge hole in the pot.

I'm sitting here looking at my RIMS wizard. It has a unitironics v350 PLC installed. Would it be possible to just change the relays to support a higher voltage and larger element to run my RIMS without the propane?

The specs i found for the RIMs Wizard has a PID on it not the touchscreen controller. Is your RIMs integrated into the brewmagic?

There was an upgrade option to the v350 so it's exactly like the brewmagic. It's basically, just a button to turn on pump and a button for heat. I'm looking that the software to write the code for the controller and maybe I can just use this as my control panel.
