  • Posted in thread: 4500W Heat stick burning wort on 12-03-2013 at 11:23 PM
    Another idea I have is to run a 5500w element and switch it to 120v once I get a boil going. I
    tried this with the 4500w element and couldn't get the boil back. Changing from 240 to 120 is
    reducing th...

    I have a 240v feed to a receptacle, cord to a heat stick with the element at the end. Turn on
    the breaker with the stick in the wort and there you have it. Pre boil vol is 7-8 gallons for 6
    gallon bat...

    Nope - standard ingredients. I also vorloff or whatever it's called to keep sediment out of
    boil kettle. Pretty clean wort boiling. Note, only 1 of 2 batches burned each time. Maybe I
    should take a vo...

    Yes, I have the ULWD element, which I believe Camco calls "premium" and is rated at 50w/in^2.
    This is the boil kettle application, bringing 160 or so degree wort after sparging to boil.I
    don't think t...

    The element is a Camco 4500w, ultra low density from Home Depot. Burned flavor is like smoke,
    very bad, not caramel. Had to dump the IPA :(.

    Anyone having trouble with heat stick burning wort? My 1st run at it (2 batches, 2 boils at
    same time ) resulted in one being burned. I replaced both elements and made a few other
    adjustments. Then to...

    Thanks for the feedback. How do you guys oxygenate? I'm puzzled about the refractometer issue
    too. Can anyone elaborate?

    Forgive me if this thread is a bit redundant, but I can't seem to find the answers to my
    questions in many of the other similar threads on this subject.I have brewed a few high OGs
    lately and I'm not ...

    I got my tubing today. Should be in business by the time I am ready to carbonate the batch
    fermenting now. I've got to make a manefold from copper or SCH 80 PVC, shouldn't be too much
    trouble.I have t...
