    Hi,

    I primarily brew small batch (12-14L)BIAB. I mash with a sous vide stick and boil on my stove. I'd like to add an element to my kettle (big W 19L pot) to fee up stove space. Is there an element I can use where I don't need a temp control box or voltage restrictor keeping in mind I just need this to boil and not mash. I'm assuming the answer is no but may as well check.

    Thanks.

    Why don't use an over-the-side element, much like what you are using for mashing but with a fixed wattage. There are some 1500W portable hot water elements on eBay (the 2.4kW ones would bee too much power).
