    I love the burner and how it works. In fact, I brewed a hefe with it just yesterday. You can
    light the burner with a pot on it. I use butane stick lighters without an issue. You can see
    the flame alth...

    Didn't you say that you also lost 2.5 gal on your trial run? What has improved?The trial run
    was 2.5 gal in 60 min with no chill loss. This was a 90 min boil including chill loss. So
    usually .25 gal i...

    I brought my KAB4 to a local welding shop that I drive by every day on the way to work. They
    modified to my specs for a $20 bill. It truly kicks butt. for bringing back an old post, but
    I am going t...

    So I completed my first brew with this new burner and I learned a lot. I did a 10 gal batch and
    based on my huge boil off rate I had it at 14 gal in a 15 gal kettle to start. Before I get to
    the actua...

    It sounds about right to me. One tank good for about 4 boils.I switched to natural gas a few
    months ago and now just use the propane for my grill. Don't miss dragging my tanks down to the
    refill store...

    So you used 5 lbs of propane - that would be 25% of the tank...What temperature was the water
    when you measured 7 gallons and 4.5 gallons respectively. I always lose about half a gallon or
    even more a...

    Or you could install a propane ball valve. That would take a lot of the guesswork out of the
    flow.Is this what you did? If so, did it make a big difference?

    Also, I thought it was a bit different with the 30 PSI regulator that it took so many turns to
    actually get propane flowing into the burner. Meaning, I open the valve on my tank 100%, and
    then started...

    I think he said he used 14% of a 20 pound tank of propane... about 60k BTU. 1k BTU needed to
    evaporate 1 lb of water. He evaporated about 20 pounds of water so efficiency is 33%. He must
    of used some ...

    The burner in the Blichmann burner looks for all the world to be the exact same casting as used
    on the KAB4 and KAB6. Blichmann supplies a 10psi max adjustable regulator. I get a rolling boil
    - not ov...
