Life has happened and I am still kettleless.
I have an opportunity to pick a new 50litre/13.2 gallon coffee urn with a 240v 2500w element. LINKY to a similar model
The one I can get is going for under $100
Some of the advantages:
Built in sight glass
built in controll to turn the heat down
has a "plastic tap" which means its predrilled.
The BIG question, is 2.5Kw going to be enough to do 5 gallon BIAB batches?
