    New way for electric brewing?

    I just set up a system to brew in my kitchen, so I am quite familiar with stove top elements. There are online calculators that will dictate the time it takes to boil. That being said, I like your burner idea and all you need to do is decide how fast realistically you want your wort to boil...
