I am considering an electrical brewing setup very simple. I was wondering if this was worth a crap or should I just go a different route.
In a nut shell I want a pot to hold say 7 - 8 gallons of water to a striking temp, than I would transfer to an igloo type mash tun and then probably relocate the heating element to the boil pot after sparging.
I used one of these for several years before it fried on me. It takes a while to heat up, but I was using it on a timer so that I could wake up to all the hot water I needed. I would get another one, but I'm thinking of building an E-HLT with more power. The bucket heater is good for heating up water, but not boiling.
