View Full Version : 6bbl, 9kw or 12kw to maintain boil?

06-20-2016, 05:33 AM
We have two elements in our boiler, a 12kw and 9kw. I use both to hit the boil, boil for 5-10 mins, then swap it out for the 9kw only if brewing 3bbl-4bbl or just the 12kw for 6bbl depending on what we are brewing.

Are there any schools of thought on what's best practice? This maintains a reasonably vigorous boil, but I'm interested to see if there's any preference or reasoning out there.
