Kevin-

The diagram would work the same as well just remember everything running 30a needs 10g wiring(contactor, element). And also the plugs and outlets used need to be 30a rated.

I think it draws around 25amps. So not going to work. Everything in my build is 10g wire, all 30a plugs and outlets on a 30a breaker.

Yeah and I could probably do a step mash but haven't yet. For mash out all I do is set the PID to mash out temp while recirc and let it be.

I actually changed the whole thing out with a stainless range hood for more power.

From mash temps to boil I believe its around 20*30mins. Seems about the same as my old turkey fryer.

I have a single element 3000w 120v system and have to turn it down to 70%-73% to keep from boiling over 7.5g. It basically depends on your system and kettle size.

Just wanted to update this and say the 3000w 120v element works great! It brings 7.5g to a rolling boil and keeps a great boil going at the 70% pid setting.
