Just finished preliminary testing on my new electric setup... PID control of a single 1800 watt heating element temporarily mounted for testing. Ultimately it will be setup like a heat stick that I can move into both my hlt and boil kettle.
Lucky for me I had an old broken power washer cord with gfci and power switch I saved a few years ago which worked perfectly!
I will be able to boost it with either propane burner or stove top to speed things up if I want to making it very simple and adaptable.
My next stage will be to use a solar recirculating preheating system to get the water up as hot as I can prior to using the electric making it cheaper and green!
Perhaps someday I will get a second ssr and element installed for more power?
what do you all think so far?
