Quick? What do you mean?Wow, downside? Is it quick?
depends on the size of the element. 5500W is pretty respectable I can get 11 gallons up to a boil from room temp in about 50 minutes. Regular 5 gallon batches coming from the MLT boil in no time.By quick I mean, like the last post, 'fast' - do they heat the water up fast?
Is there an element sticking up through the pot or is it smooth all the way around?
Down Side?Wow, downside? Is it quick?
I was curious about cost also (posted this in another thread). I did a few quick calcs and came up with this. Just adjust for your costs. Anyone know what the efficiency to the kettle would be with gas?Have you done any cost analysis? Is electric cheaper than propane or just more convenient and safe for indoors?
Quick? What do you mean?
I wanted electric because I wanted to brew indoors and didn't want to have to deal with propane and/or natural gas indoors. The other benefit is the ability to have a HERMS, which I couldn't easily do with propane.
