    How much power can I draw with Portable Elements

    you should try to run them from 2 diff circuits if possible not from one double power point that 4800w from the one point is a lot of draw = may be over heating up wires = risk i often quicken my boil using 2x 2400 but from 2 circuits but boil on 1 x 2400

    Remove sediment in primary instead of racking

    yeah kegs are the go... IMO 1st you should consider a fermenting fridge, temp control increases the quality of the beer as well. maybe just get some smaller bottles and give that a try 1st = cheap option

    Remove sediment in primary instead of racking

    consider moving to cold crashing as it will help more than most other things in imo racking to secondary will help but imo more risks - infection and oxygen switch to 700ml and pour the hole bottle to a cold jug in one smooth pour
