Turn it to manual mode, crank to 100%, then once you hit boil back it down to whatever you're comfortable with. Trial and error to figure out your preferred boil off rate

I set mine to manual 100% as well. I usually have to back it down a touch to hit my boil off rate.

Ah, ok. That makes me feel a bit better but I thought the point of manual mode was to be able to reduce the intensity of the boil so that the element wasn't firing the entire time.

not as much of an issue here with the smaller elements and batches, definitely have to back off for the 240v systems with 4500-5500w elements

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.

So I was looking at ways to attach the heating element to the pot/kettle/keggle. Not my original idea but it seems like a good way to go.

http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/he...lements?page=7

Also found this 1650w heating element for cheaper than graingers.

http://www.zorotools.com/g/00065662/...azonProductAds

Through an outside source of amazon. $9.99 plus $5 shipping. Cost less shipped than grainger.

Hope this helps someone.
