Minimum volume during boil?

Unread postby Broham1 » Fri Feb 06, 2015 9:59 pm

What is the minimum volume of wort you can boil down to and still keep the heating coils submerged?

I've tried searching for this answer, but I've only found responses to the question of mash volume, not boil volume.

Cheers,

Well, to cover the coils without the malt pipe or grain you need about 7 liters. Considering you need a minimum of 20-21 liters to mash, I don't think anyone has tried a four hour boil to get down to 7 or 8 liters :)
