Looks very nice and professional.Do you have to run this on 240V b/c of the 5500W element? Are there any problems with scorching the wort during boiling?Kai
I havent experienced any scorching whatsoever and have to say the biggest advantage I have found by going electric is noise............actually lack of.

This would allow a very nice flow where the bubbles rise in the center. This creates even movement of wort that rises in the middle and falls down on the sides. I was looking for such an element when I was thinking about an electric system but I came up short.Kai
Babalu, do you know how much yours costs to operate? Vs propane for instance.
Very cool. Thanks. Kai, that is the same reason I am looking at it. We just bought a new house with a basement and I am contemplating moving the brewery down there. Of course I do enjoy brewing outdoors so who knows. One thing I hate is having to buy tank after tank of propane.
