Those variable regulators are just the fix for most jet burner issues, try runing all your burners at once, I'll bet you'll be even happier you bought it

FYI, if you order through topfoodservice.com, they do have the L.P AND NG burners. If you call them and tell them you want the asianfoodservice price (can't order directly), they will give you that lower price.

Also a question... My local propane guy says that I will freeze up my tank if I run in for 60+ minutes at a time. I would like to use one 7 lbs tank, but he recommended two (one for each of my burners). Does one tank work?

I have only run one tank and 2 burners, at the most, at one time. I have run all 3 burners at once with one tank for testing but, the need hasn't arose to run 3 for brewing. You can run at full wide open and really who would want to for any length of time.. but yes to answer your question, one tank works. I boiled 90 minutes last week and it worked fine. You will find that once you have a boil going it doesn't take much heat/propane/burner to keep the boil going. To be accurate we need to compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges... I'm using a 20# tank...what set up do you have?... I have a Brutus with a gas beam..check out my brutus rig photo's at the link below.

I am thinking of building this type of system: alenuts.com - Home of Brutus "Ten"

Unless someone can talk me out of it.

I have another question though...you you just hook up the variable pressure regulator hose to the burner or do you need something to mix in air before the burner?

The air intakes are at the base of each copper tip so gas only goes into the cast ring.

Perfect. That is what I thought, but my local propane guy thought different...scary. Lastly, how does the safety shut-off valve work? Most people use these to save their lives?

Don't over think this concept, high pressure or low pressure, it doesn't matter. Just dial in what you need
This is horrible advice. The original poster is using a VR8304 Honeywell gas valve. It is rated for not more than 0.5 psig. Just for ****z and giggles I called Honeywell and the technician said if you put even 1 psig of pressure through the valve you risk damage.
