I recently made a keggle and would like to install an element, using it as a HLT and BK.
I've read a lot of posts about electric setups but could not find one that shows a best practice for installing the element.
Here are my questions:
1. What type of element is best (I believe 120vac 20amp breaker can support up to 1500W), but what about 220VAC? What is a good choice for heating 10-12 gallons in a reasonable amount of time?
2. Low density? What is the best choice here... where are you buying your elements?
3. How do I install this thing? What coupler is needed and how is the wiring on the back of the element covered?
Thanks for your help.
