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.smeller wrote:You can buy 4 different size immersion heaters here: 350W, 1000W, 1500W and 2000W

I use the 2000W version to boost my electrical boil kettle
Just ordered the 2000W version to complement the built in elements. Nice and cheap. Thanks for sharing the link.
