Default Starting building my brew stand and just want to double check the pumps and burners

So I'm putting together a 1BBL system and just want to double check that I'm getting big enough march pumps and burners.

Gonna get 2 pumps and 2 burners along with a 50# propane tank

I'm torn between 2 burners http://www.midwestsupplies.com/cast-...rner-only.html or http://morebeer.com/view_product/172...essure_Propane
Thanks for the help!

Go with the banjo burners, much more even heat. And you can get them through bayou classics website cheaper.

cool gotta find a low pressure one now, was reading how a lot of the high pressure ones stop working once the tank gets 1/2 empty.

The only reason I can see that a HP burner would stop working when the tank drops below 1/2 is that the tank is freezing. There are many ways around that from keeping the tank in water to using a bigger tank.

Yeah that makes sense. I'm planning on getting a 50# tank anyways.
