I just bought one of these of Amazon for $75. I brew 2.5 gl batches of extract but think I may convert back to AG like I use to brew in 5gl batches but try this new BIAB thingy.

Anyone use one of these hot plates? How much can you boil and how long does it take to come up to temp?

I think I should be fine boiling 3.5gl of extract or I could even cut it down to a couple gallons and top off fermenter with cool water. What do you think?

Looks pretty good. I like the controls. Now if your BK is compatible with it...

It will be nice to get away from propane burner in my basement. Even with windows open I occassionally had co2 alarms going off. I don't need to kill anymore bain cells!

I used one of these for my first few extract brews. My only suggestions are to KEEP THE LID ON! If you dont, you will find that it will not hold a boil. I did 3gallon boils, and it struggled at times. I'd say it took about an hour or so to hit rolling boil, and if you dont keep the lid on it wouldnt really boil.

Let me know how BIAB works on it, i never tried it with mine. I've since switched to a keggle a coworker gave me with a 1500w and 2000w element in it. Works MUCH better IME but the induction hotplate works well for smaller batches. I'm keeping it around for small 1g for sure!

Nice find for 70 bucks btw!
