Tom,
If we setup your VII in the kitchen shouldn't be a problem keeping both
boilers full force. Don't need no steekun economy mode! Really want to
compare head to head shots, cap' production etc. between the Bricoletta and
VII so best located in the kitchen rather than the deck espresso machine
array. It'll be on the same circuit I normally use for my 1900w Bric' which
I'll be running off short extension other kitchen 20A circuit which just has
the fridge. (Did this setup last year's End of Summer Espresso Jam no
problem.) Though my receptacles are not the 90 offset 20A so your plug
itself will indeed need to be standard 15A style.
Obviously if pulling a bunch of back to back shots at same temp' you should
be able to outpace me since no need to flash for temp before pull. But what
would be interesting is doing series of different beans (or same bean) all
requiring different shot temps ranging from 196 to 206, say 5 or 6 shots
going higher then lower then lower still then way higer etc. and see which
can produce faster with the requisite temp changes:-)
Man only two weeks away, lots to do in preparation! (major understatement:-)

With the set up in the kitchen do I still need to get a Flowjet or can I 
tie in to your water line with
some john Guest type fittings?? I will change the plug over to the 15 
amp type so we can run
20 amps through it.

'Bout the only accessible split point would be the Bric's feed (John Guest
to feed line.) Anything else like 'fridge line or tapping already 4-way
split from under the sink from charcoal block cold water filter would be a
major hassle AND probably run across walk space. Plus 'fridge wise don't
want to have to disable the ice maker during the Gathering! Plan to setup
the V II where Alchemist had his Gaggia Factory Lever and Cremina at End of
Summer Jam last year. (SM5k same spot PNWG I, forget which machine(s) setup
there PNWG III & IV) Wait I remember, Barry's Brute was that spot PNWG IV!
However, I don't believe Bric's feed line would adequately handle the flow
of both simultaneously since I used 1/4" OD copper line. (Had already run it
for Silvia's float tank fill or might have used larger, but no water
starvation problems just feeding the Bric') Suppose we could try Teeing off
the Bric's feed, but I suspect cavitation problems when we're both
hammering. Also would need about a 20' line to run around the counters to
the V II.
