Anybody have this burner, I want to upgrade mine, which currently has trouble boiling even 6 gallons. I have a keggle to do extract full boils in right now, next spring I want to step up to all grain. Just wondering if anyone has this and is it enough to do vigourous boils in, say, 20 mins? The one I have now is toooooo slow, and if I could trim just a little time off of brew days it would make SWMBO happy and me too, I am pretty busy with other stuff but I am addicted to brewing lol.

Plenty of BTUs to boil quickly, wide enough for most kettles (within reason), and very stable. I got mine from Amazon and consider it the best deal in my HB arsenal.

I have it and like it. I normally do 6 gallon batches but I have done up to 10 gallons with it though. No problems here. Buy it but not from Amazon, $66 is a little expensive. I bought mine from Ace Hardware. It was $50 bucks and got it shipped to the store for free.

Got two of these a couple of years ago for 40 each. Well worth it in my opinion.

Can I just add a 20 psi regulator to help with a 10 gallon boil if I wanted to? or are they different sizes?

Got mine from hobbywarehouse.com for $38.69. A quick search didn't turn up that model now tho. I love it. I've had no problems with it doing it's job and it is very easy on fuel.

I have owned two of those for years and have no problem boiling 10-12 gallons in a keggle. Have you tried cleaning out any obstructions in the air intake or the burner? Is your regulator working OK? A bit of maintenance or a replacement part might get you back in business for less than a new unit.
