Over Easter I decided to break out the brewing equipment and brew a pale ale. As usual getting my 25 litres up to boil was long and arduous... Never really making it to a decent rolling boil. I decided I needed to add some power. After a bit of googling I found a comment on an aussie forum where someone had taken apart an old kettle to add to their kettle. They also reckoned you needed at least 3000 watts to successfully sustain 25 litres at a good boil (The Electrim bin ships with a 2000 watt element.) As luck would have it I had an old functioning kettle to play with.
