Default Let's Talk about Burners.

Where did you get your burner and how do you like it? I just looked at the selections from Northern Brewer. Yup, the 100 dollar one sure is nice, but is it really better then the $55 one?

I'm proud to say I have a gas guzzling 220,000 btu burner in my garage, do you need it? Maybe, if your doing 10gal batches or larger. Its awesome for heating a
lot of volume within minutes.

I know what you mean. I've seen others that looked the same and were 150,000 BTU. All I do know is that it will get my keggle with 10 gal of cold water to boil in approx 15-20 minutes. About 10 min for the wort to boil after sparging.

Thats the same one I have, but the box and instruction book says its a 220,000 btu burner. Hmmm, must be a different regulator on mine.

I use a Hurricane Burner from Midwest Supplies:


I love it. Even though it says only 60K BTU, it's got plenty of power for me. I do full boils for 5 gallon AG batches, sometimes ending up with 7 gallons of wort to boil after the sparge. I never seem to need more than half throttle, and I can get about the same boil times as the_Roqk with 5 gallons. The nice part for me too is that when I bought it I had a half tank of propane, I've done 2 extract batches and 2 full AG batches (incl heating up the strike/sparge water) and I'm still working off the rest of that tank. I love how efficient it is, almost silent when running.
