We are very happy with the performance of the high pressure hurricane burners.

As I have learned about heat transfer from Kladue.... the 210k btu is not realistically attainable. not with out 2' high flames and melted thermometers. : ) I believe we are between 60 and 70k btu transfer to the kettles. We are able to heat the strike water for a 1bbl batch in 35-40 mins, and bring the full 35 gallons of wort to a boil in about the same time...maybe 45-50 mins....

We actually do a pre-boil half way through the sparge. We bring 50% of the wort volume to a full rolling boil before we continue sparging....this has had a enormous positive affect on the protein break.

Good to know! I recently acquired a blichmann burner rated at 70k btu i believe, and it is total overkill for my 10gal batches. Should be good to see it in action on a 1 bbl batch. May have to switch to NG as it can kill a 5 gallon LP tank in about 2 or 3 brews if i run it full open

Where did you buy the enclosure for your control panel? This is what I've been looking for.
