How long does it take you to get your wort to a rolling boil?

What equipment do you use?

I have a typical turkey fryer setup and it takes 30-50 minutes to get to a rolling boil. About 10 minutes per gallon.

seems like 30 minutes or so with around 4 gallons starting cold. but my stove is an old commercial wolf stove that cranks out an obscene amount of heat. i can bring a small pot to with cold water (like for pasta) in about 3-4 minutes. i love it.

I just tried it on my kitchen stove and gave up after 2 hours.

Looks like you could have done better with a cigarette lighter.

3kw is about 10,000 btu. My cheapo turkey fryer is about 65,000 btu. If this is what you have available, I'd recommend sticking to 2-3 gallon worts and topping off to 5 gallons. The two batches I did this weekend were mini-mashes. 2 1/2 gallons of water + grains, then added the extract & boiled. Worked out very well.

Although I did these on gas/propane burners, I've done similar batches on my electric stove. On the plus side for electrics, you can set them on low and keep your mash warm. That's tricky with propane.

Orfy, are you able to get propane there in the UK? I was able to get it while I lived there but on US Base.

Yes we can get propane but not a chance with turkey fryers.
last quote I got for shipping from the states was $120.

How about just building your own cooker using something like this. Even if you had to order it from the states, it's be much less weight to ship.

Even less and easier to hook-up would be a burner like I'm using.

It boils 6.5 gallons in about 40 minutes.

Thanks ScottT.

If my second attempt doesn't work then it may be that I need to ship something over. I'm going to try this.



Edit:

Around 1 hour for the boil on 6 gallons (I wonder if it'll be much difference for wort) And I chilled it in less than 15 minutes with my new wort chiller.
I may reduce the size of the chiller becuase it doesn't all submerge in the wort.
