What's your boil off rate like with the hood?

i'd say about 15%

I use the 2000W version to boost my electrical boil kettle

Also getting a fairly embarrassing boil on the 50L (with BM insulation jacket). More of an issue with larger batches, like the 52L of wort I tried to boil last weekend. I might be getting a hint of DMS in my batches but can't tell with certainty.

Just ordered the 2000W version to complement the built in elements. Nice and cheap. Thanks for sharing the link.
