good point on that boil . I was using a small cooker and it would not boil hard and I did not think that was a problem until I watched a video and saw the full boil going on there. I would suggest http://www.webstaurantstore.com/backyard-pro-outdoor-range-patio-stove-with-hose-guard/554BPHP17.html . Just like the KAB4 but with much heavier legs . 210K and is very heavy . will hold up a 120 quart pot with no problems . Boils 8 gallons of water like your stove boils 2 quarts. it is great and costs a whole lot less than the others like it . I think it was 70.00 + a bit shipped .

Any way I think your cream ale is going to taste great . Enjoy.

A good rolling boil is key for good hot break, good hop utilization, and the reduction of DMS. Just my $0.02

I'm glad to hear that about the Mash. As for the burner... I got a bayou classic outdoor burner and a 32qt stainless steel pot for Christmas. This was my first time using it. I was getting a better boil on my electric stove with a ceramic pot in my previous batches.

Sure it will work. You don't need to adjust the mash but realize that flaked barley will add some protien haze to the finished brew in the form of a true chill haze.

Flaked barley is going to leave you with different flavours, and mouthfeel. Will it work? Yes. Will it make a good beer? If your process is good, yup.

The flavour and colour will be different than the original, but I bet you dollars to doughnuts you make a light ale you can be proud of.

Probably not enough BTU's . I have a small burner 30K i think also and it does not work so well. Upgrade to 100K or more with a 20 or 30 psi regulator .
my last comment on this burner thing as I do not want to hijack this thread. ...back to cream ale .

Made an 11 gallon batch of this yesterday. Used 1oz Mt.hood and Willamette.

I hit about 85% efficiency so my
OG was 1.050

I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

Looks like I'm going to have to scale this one down a little. Aiming for 10.5 gallons post-boil, and I think I may hit 85% again. Looks like the alphas in my hops are rather stronger too, as I'm coming in at 22.0 IBU on BeerSmith.

Going to make this next weekend. Think I'll use 1056 to get it out of my fridge before it goes dead.

I've done 13 gallon boils that roiled very well on my 55k BTU SQ14 Bayou Classic burner. Wasn't even turned all the way up.

Are you guys boiling inside a snowstorm or something?

Wow that was quite a read
I confess I did not read all of this thread but found the flow of ideas and questions very enlightening.

Thanks all
