.... and I never said that vigorous was bad, either... just that it was possible for the boil to be TOO vigorous (which is really the same thing as applying too high a thermal load, as far as I can see). I haven't measured my evaporation rate yet (sight tube is waiting to be installed to better measure kettle volume), but I'm pretty sure I'm right around the 15% level that I want to be at. Any more than that, I'm probably wasting fuel, and too much higher than that, the beer could theoretically suffer.

I mounted the burner to a length of 6" 20g flat metal and then attached it to my otherwise unmodified turkey fryer stand. Works great, but if you buy just the burner from Amazon, the hi-pressure reg. is not included.
