I am not an expert. I use low pressure natural gas using a Honeywell Y8610U intermittent ignition setup controlled by a PID. I get quite a bit of heat as my burners are 65000 btu on my brewstand. I know very little about propane. Check out this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/prop...ve-help-94916/. Kladue knows more about the subject and has in the past answered my questions.

Here you can see what I do with different brand valves.
My LP regulator is a low pressure out 0.5PSI, works with all commercial gas valves (to my knowledge).
All my gas valves are equipped with the same regulator.
Beer Beer sells the regulator as pictured.
After you install the low pressure regulator to the gas valve, the gas valve out
pressure needs to be adjusted to give you a nice burner flame.





Cheers,
ClaudiusB

Yes you can drill out the orifice for the banjo burner for use with low pressure lp, use a #36 or 7/64 drill bit to start and increase size if needed to max of 1/8". Check with member "Apparatus" as he has succesfully fired his system on low pressure lp using the same banjo burners after drilling out the high pressure orifices. The existing tubing on your system will not need to be changed because the runs are not long enough to add significant pressure drop.

I think I'm going to take the 36c03 valve out and replace it with a 8210g094 asco valve. I'll just have to be careful to watch for flameouts. I've never boiled over a mash tun and my burner is protected from the wind pretty good.

Why would anything ever come to a boil in your Mash Tun?
