    I have an electric Burco but had to have the wiring slightly modified so it would continuously boil, toby on here got me the info on the wiring mod from a mate.

    Catering size pressure cooker is my preference, shorter cooking times, no goodness lost through evaporation and I believe the pressure makes a greater proportion of the hemp split. eBay for gas rings and pressure cookers eBay no 172329751776 13 litre pressure cooker 27 larger ones up to 25 litres available but for more money.. Boiling ring eBay no 252417647344 slightly cheaper ones are available but with reduced power output.
