Default Looking for a burner that can handle 15+ gallons of wort... advice?

Have a 226 gallon kettles. Trying to start doing 12 gallon batches an might move to to more later.

Would this edelmetall-bru-burner be a good choice. Want to get to a boil quickly.

Did you mean 226 or is it 22 or 26? If it's in the 20's that burner will work.

I was looking at this burner too. I just built converted a keg and need something solid and with enough power. I was thinking about about Blichmann burner but Morebeer shows a 3-5 week lead time from blichmann. I saw these one Northern Brewer for $139.99 plus $7.99 shipping. I think I'm about to buy one.

I got a Bayou Classic Sp1, it's 180,000 btu and has plenty of head room on the burner. I only do five gallon batches presently, but it's for capable of doing much larger volumes. I got mine from amazon, and it works great. And much cheaper then the one your looking at and a lot more btu.

I just sold my sp1 today. It's good but it doesn't hold a keggle without modification. Plus it lives up to the name jet burner (it's super loud). I was going to buy the KAB6 but I see too many comments about the burner being mounted too low.

I ordered the Bru Burner today so I report on it when I receive it and brew a 11 gallon batch.

You can't beat the Blichmann for quality, efficiency, and quiet operation. One of the best brewing purchases I've ever made!

I prefer the pot retention system on the Blich, but both are very close.

I probably should have been more patient and waited for the Blichmann but I'm hoping the Bru Burner will be close
