The jist of this is in the title - I usually brew 10g batches, and just wondered if anyone did it with 110v 2250w.. It would obviously be much easier/convienient to just plug it in in the kitchen than run a 220 line, but I wondered if it was even possible. Thanks for your help !!

You won't generate enough heat to boil in a lifetime. For 10 gallons you will need 230v or make a heat stick to assist your stove.

With a really well insulated kettle, it might work but be painfully slow. If your kitchen has two 20 amp 120v circuits you could use two 2000w elements and do 10 gallons.

I do this. 4000w is perfect for a 10 gallon batch, IMO.
