Just to add to Kal and Bobby, I brew 10 gallon batches, 12 gallons preboil and I set the PID to 65% to maintain a rolling boil (with a 5500 watt element). To do that without some sort of control,...

I think that's a lot of work, effort and energy to brew 1 BBL just once or twice a year. I would simply plan on brewing 3 10-gallon batches in 1 weekend, blend the fermented beer and get 6 kegs out...
