    Will this cheap 3500 watt induction burner work?

    About 4 gallons. The diameter of my pot is 12". The size of the the top surface of the unit is 11" x 11", it probably would be less efficient if the pot had a larger diameter.

    Will this cheap 3500 watt induction burner work?

    Well I have had my 3500 watt unit for some time but just used it for the first time, yesterday. I had been using a 1800 watt Duxtop. I would say the results were amazing, fast boil, and great control of the boil to prevent boil over messes. I am very happy with the results. By the way, I...

    I've had sealing problems with my lid too, needs an o-ring or gasket. I like to use a step drill instead of a hole saw, just be careful to stop at the right size.

    Craft The Perfect Draft 220 Volt Wiring

    I wouldn't get too hung up on people calling it 110 or 220 or 440. I remember as a kid it was 117 volts instead of 120. what your power company delivers should be fine. Saying that, the village where I am a plant electrician was giving us low voltage last summer. What was supposed to be 2300...

    Will this cheap 3500 watt induction burner work?

    All equipment must have its own protective device, you certainly can't rely on the breaker in the main panel to protect each appliance that is connected to that circuit, it is sized to protect the wire. Lets say that you try connecting two 120 v. 1500 watt toasters to a 20 amp circuit, it will...

    Will this cheap 3500 watt induction burner work?

    Nothing wrong with a 30 amp breaker as long as you are using #10 wire. A 120 v breaker is a single breaker and a 240 v breaker is a double breaker with the arms attached.

    Extract kits in a can?

    As unionrdr said earlier, to get a higher abv you need to add more fermentables to the can of Coopers. Either more malt extract or corn syrup or other sugar source for the yeast to convert to alcohol.

    Perle Hops - Bittering for Christmas ale?

    I think that Perle would be an excellent flavor for this style of beer, it is minty and adds a spicy overtone, definitely worth doing.:mug:
