To the OP - Can you share how this worked out for you? I'm looking at something very similar
for the same situation you are in. Did this work out well for you?Thanks!

Yup, I should have just tried it out! Though I am glad I went through the troubleshooting a
bit, I think I solved some other things in the process and learned a few things from the

It is a 9 gallon kettle, so overkill for my 2.5 gallon batches, but I was trying to reuse what
I had to minimize costs of switching to electric.

Following up here, I did try a batch and was really surprised what a difference actual wort
made. The boil was nice and rolling and worked well. I am not sure why it was so much less with
just water, ...
Posted in thread: 120v 2000W, will a longer element or narrower pot inprove boil? on 04-25-2014 at 01:59 AM
Are you seeing a weak boil with water or wort? I thought I had a pretty weak boil too when I
was testing mine with water. When I tried a batch anyway, the boil looked a lot stronger with
actual wort. ...

Thanks everyone, appreciate all of the advice. Agree that there's not really much left to get
out of it and based on both Rivenin's picture above and posts in the other posting for the 110v
build it s...

Yeah, am using that Auber SSR. The good news is that I've gotten the voltage drop down to be
almost nothing -- ~3 volts from wall to element, which I think is reasonable. I just replaced
my 14ga cord ...

Everything in the box that would have either pump or element current flowing through it is
using 12awg. I thought 14awg could handle up to 20amps of current ok for short periods of time?
I know for sa...

I'm trying to troubleshoot why my eBIAB system can't get a rolling boil for about 4 gallons of
water. I'm using a ~14 in wide pot with a 2000W element plugged into 110v eBIAB build found on

Hmm, hadn't thought about the cord. It's 14 gauge and about 6 feet. Should that be an issue? I
did try to out the lid partially on, but still didn't get up to rolling. I think the direct
contact of th...
