My first impression of my 5500 watt electric system is very positive. It's must faster than I was expecting, 7 gallons went from 60 degrees to boiling in a little over 25 minutes without a lid. And part of that time was at 60% because I mucked up the manual setting. Also, it was eerily quiet, and there was no angst about carbon monoxide poisoning either.
Two quick questions. First, a manual boil is a weird experience the first time you see it. It's not a steady boil like propane, it pulsates to the rhythm of the PID. But I found that I got a decent boil at about 60% power using water. Will wort be approximately the same setting? Second, the alarm on my 2352 went off as expected, but my external light/buzzer never went off. This is the Auberins 120v light/buzzer. I connected the alarm wires to post 1 & 13 as the instructions said. Is there a polarity on those? Or is there something else I may have screwed up?
I'll post some photos tomorrow.
