Just wondering about that element you have. I was looking at the same one but was deterred by the price. Was shipping much, I'm thinking about upgrading.
Yeah, everything went well! Just my crappy efficiency was the bummer... But I think I'll get it more dialed in soon.
The price is a lot, but I think it was worth it. It heats up water fairly quickly, and it seemed like I could go from mash to mash out to boil fairly quickly. And the boil was nice and vigorous, even at 85% power.
