Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a suitable/reliable electric stove for a 10 gallon pot ?

I see a lot of 2000W stove, will that work ?

are you looking for a kitchen stove or a single burner / induction style?
Depending on how much you plan to boil, a 2000W burner may work or be just barely adequate.
|If you're doing 5-gallon batches, it'll work, just barely, as long as you have insulation on the kettle and the top half on. Smaller batches it'll do |OK though.
I got a 3500W induction burner for my brewing - I had to run (had an electrician do it) a 220V line to that area, but that wasn't too expensive, since we were having work done anyway.
That burner will get 6 gallons strike water from tap to temp (170) in about 20 minutes, and from run off to boil in 15.

A single induction was the idea as im planning to make a small set up in my basement garage.

The size in diameter might be a bit hard to find a single induction for it, maybe something commercial will do but at the same time i am trying to keep it low cost as possible

THIS is the induction burner I use with a 10 gallon kettle.
It just fits on the housing, which I actally like, having some of the weight supported by the metal frame as opposed t obeing fully on the glass element.
There is also a less-powerful version, the IC1800. I think it's the same dimensions.

My concern is the diameter of the pot. It is a 36cm kettle.... or maybe it does not matter much the diameter if the power is strong enough

My kettle is the same. I do see that the heat is more towards the center, but due to how inductions work, it does spread the heat out somewhat from the center.
