Should I run it on 240 or 120? I see a lot of people running them on 120 to cut the wattage. I can probably hit 3/4 gallon per minute on my flow rate without sticking, but I'm not sure if I can do any better than that.

For your batch size, 240 for sure. I feel the pain going from 6 to 12 gallon batches. Not primarily in temp stabilization, but the luxury of moving to mashout or strike temp. I think you would really appreciate 240.
