I'm happy with The SQ-14 burner. Plenty hot, quiet, easy on fuel, sturdy, and affordable. The sp10 not so much. Well it's affordable.

Only a six dollar price difference on Amazon? They are both what I would consider "affordable".

I have the winware version of this 60qt aluminum kettle. I love it. I will eventually move to stainless only because of the pot thickness makes adding elements very difficult. But you could go the solder route and fix that.

Ball valves are easy to install because its light and soft.
Extra thick with sturdy handles.
I have lifted it with 10g of wort with no issues.
Spreads head more efficiently.
When you do your boil-off check you have seasoned the pot.
The outside stays shiny if you care for it.

It's cheap...at 73$ shipped you're almost within budget.

edit: looks like i'm too late

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. The only thing the sp-10 has going for it is that it is also affordable. No reason not to get the infinitely superior SQ-14 model instead.

Anyone have a suggestion for a burner? The brew kettle looks to be about 16" in diameter, I was looking at getting Bayou Classic SP10 because it shows it working upto a 100qt.
I know you're on a budget but from an overall quality & efficiency standpoint you can't beat the Blichmann burner. I'd also recommend getting the keg extensions. It's also very quiet.

Me I go for the dual burner from Concord on EBay! For the money you get a taller burner - a dual burner wins over a single little squatty turkey fryers!

Got one for Xmas and love it.

http://www.amazon.com/King-Kooker-94...e+burner+stand

theres always this...

I bought a new bayou classic burner on amazon for $35 shipped because the box was damaged and thaen decided to go electric instead (So glad I did) brewing indoors in the winter is soo nice. I dont know if you have looked into it but despite what many will tell you if you have access to a 30a or larder 220v line you can go electric cheaply with a stilldragon kit and 5500w ulwd burner for about $100 including a GFCI and all the needed parts.

You dont need the fancy pid controllers and such but they are nice and they do make it easy to replicate the exact same beer each time..

Sadly my brew pot is too big for this stand. It would just be a waste of another burner.

I will probably be going with the Bayou SQ-14 and build a stand for it.

That is always option. I have never really thought of that? Is it a viable option. I've been much holding off on any new hammers this year. So maybe going electric maybe a decent option?

Is electric burner' the same an induction burner?
