When and how to reduce power to a 1500W element

Regulating the output of a heating element is important during mashing (preventing scorching), boiling (stopping hot break), distilling (preventing 'burping'), and even fermenting (some brewers are experimenting with using the element on very low wattage to keep fermenter warm). Reducing the power output of 5500W/240V elements is easy with the Power Control Box and now it is easy with 1500W/120V elements as well. This video shows how. (The output can be controlled with a 'variable speed industrial fan controller' and digitally monitored by using a watt meter such as the 'Kill a Watt' by P3 International, both found on Amazon.)
