I have decided to build a hybird system. Electric hlt and gas bk. I can always upgrade to electric bk later, but right now this is the easiest for me.
I ordered a couple of the 1 inch half couplings and I have 2) 120v 1500w heaters that were laying around from old truck stock. I also found a robertshaw steam table tstat that will go up to 225 degrees and handle 20 amps.
Should I use both elements? I will be using this for both 5 and 10 gallon batches and I might could use the extra wattage. If I used 2, what about the placement of the elements. One on top of the other or one on either side of the tank?
Thanks in advance
