I'm a first-time poster but long time lurker/researcher here on HBT. I've been impressed by the knowledge of the folks in the community here, especially when it comes to electric brewing.
Anyway, I've got about 10 all-grain batches under my belt and just haven't been impressed with the last few batches. I'm currently brewing with a propane-fired keggle, a cooler mash tun, etc. but don't have a pump or stand right now. The whole process screams for a nice stand/system. So...
My goal for the winter is build a beautiful electric brewery like Kal's from theelectricbrewery.com. Awesome website and a very helpful guy.
In the meantime, I am going to go back to extract while building the dream brewery. I want to focus on starters, ferm temp, kegging, etc. I do however want to build a 15 gal e-kettle for boiling extract batches.
Does anyone here do full-wort boil with extract elements? Any pitfalls ie scorched wort or damaged elements?
Without delving too far into the AG vs extract debate, will I see any differences using a heating element inside the kettle vs propane fired-kettle?
