I've done about 20 batches with an aluminum pot and 5500W element. No problems whatsoever. Hardest part is threading the nut on the element as aluminum pots are thicker than SS, so can sometimes...

In hindsight, I think installing the receptacles in the panel and then installing the wires might have contributed to the problem. Smaller space to really torque everything down well. This may be a...

No worries. Probably be a day or two before I pull it apart and take some shots.

Yeah, not the greatest feeling thinking about what could have happened.

It was one of the hot wires and right at the receptacle, so no crimp. Screwed down.

Houston...we almost had a big problem

Started heating my HLT up today and went upstairs while the water was heating. Went to check on it about 15 minutes later and noticed the smell of plastic in the air. Shut everything down, opened...

Surprisingly very well. I figured I'd give it a shot and worst case I would be out $10. Works just as well as if I were to stir. In action, it makes the HLT look like a nice rolling boil is...

I mean an air pump, a bubbler, something you would attach an airstone to, not a water pump. It sits outside of the HLT. The only thing sitting in my water is a piece of silicon tubing at the bottom...

I use a cheap aquarium air pump to "stir" my HLT. $10 and it works perfectly for breaking up the thermal layer. You won't be able to measure the water temp at the outlet is the one downside.

Yep. +1 here as well. Even with the cost of shipping, grain is cheaper than my LHBS and hops are about 1/3 the price. I only go to my local shop for items they don't carry.

I think the thread length on the element is 7/8" and the kettle wall is 3/8". Add the o-ring, shim washer and curvature of the kettle and it makes things a bit tough...but not impossible. I just...

Electric has changed my life

Brew life at least.

Story to date:

Converted my brew kettle to electric a couple weeks ago using Kal's instructions. My kettle is aluminum, so it was not easy getting the locknut to thread...

Good point.

Not wanting to open up the panel again is no good reason for not hooking it up.

Got pretty lucky

SWMBO has decided it would be nicer if I no longer took up the kitchen for hours on end, so I decided to go the electric route in the basement.

Hmm, what if I boost the Maris Otter a bit to 8.5 pounds and drop a couple ounces of the patent?

This would be

2 lb Flaked Barley
1 lb Roast Barley
8 oz Chocolate
