Go for it. Scorching will not be an issue unless the flame is licking the bottom of the drum.

Install a shut-off at the hard pipe then a gas quick-disconnect. I use 1/2" rubber heater hose
sold by the foot at the hardware store. It is disconnected and purged after each brew session

I have used them in both ball and pin-lock kegs. Better than the originals. Wish I had a bag of
them years ago as it would have saved me many headaches. Well worth it.

Herbie Clips work great on silicone hose to hold them onto barbs. Easy to install and remove in
a moment. No need for tools.

Gear drive ensures the second roller will always be turning. After much use I think the knurls
on my original were worn enough that sometimes the grain would not "catch" and engage. Enough

I had a similar setup with my malt mill for several years. I had to have the motor running

changed to a Ha...
