I've been all-grain for a long while now, and it's great to be out in the garage where I don't have to fear the wrath of the SWMBO if something boils over (not that it happens much, thanks to Fermcap- a fantastic invention). But I'm still heating all my water in the kitchen.
I just installed a hose bib in the garage, and ordered some equipment so as to set up a simple gravity-fed system where I can do everything in the garage, from dough-in to pitching.
My question is: what is a safe distance from a standard turkey-fryer propane stand burner to a cooler MLT? How much heat is radiated sideways that would pose a melting threat to the cooler? Also, I have it all on a wooden table. I know a lot of you have wooden brew sculptures. There's not much heat threat downwards, right? Can I have a propane stand on top of the wooden table with no worries?
Thanks for any input.
