If I were consistently doing 1bbl batches, yea I would want something a bit more powerful. For right now though, it will work just fine for the occasional 1bbl. Once I throw some insulation on the BK, I'm sure I'll be able to get a much better boil. Plus the garage is a bit chili, i'm sure summer will bring more vigorous boils.

in a pinch you could always stick an electric charcoal starter in the BK for a little extra heat. And the residual charcoal might add a pleasant smokiness

That might work with a Rauchbeir.

Thanks,

I'm trying to decide how I want to wire this up. If I just want to use some MOLEX connectors or how exactly I want to do it.

I would pick up a quick disconnect for the wire and then if possible set it into the frame; run the wire through the frame and into the control panel.

I was actually going to do that initially with all of my wiring but never did. I do have some cable management around the back of the frame I will thread it through.

Bean- On a side note. Going to brew again Sunday. Gotta get the pipeline going. How'd the fermentation go on the Evil Twin?

I haven't been home yet to check on it, I will let you know later tonight when I am able to take a reading.

Now to figure out what to dry hop it with..
