Default Burner question

I am ramping up to build a Heat Exchange Recirculating Mash system, and I want to set up a burner like this one for the boil.



This burner is for Natural Gas only, I assume this is because the natural gas is at a lower pressure than propane in a tank.

Can I get an adapter to convert my tank propane to low pressure so it can run through this burner, anyone have advice and/or links to places to buy what I will need?

Thanks
B^2

They have low pressure regulators for propane tanks, but I'm not sure that it would enable you to use that burner. I don't know what the difference is. I'm sure someone on here will have all the technical details, but if not, a regulator should only be about $15 for a test...from a distance...have a friend do it...with an extinguisher ready...

Thanks,
This is more on the lines of what I need something to get a High pressure tank set up for a low pressure application.

One of those banjo burners might be a good way to go, as well. www.homebrewheaven.com has one for $79.95 that includes a stand and regulator and puts out 200,000 BTUs.

I'd post a link, but for some reason, Homebrew Heaven's site doesn't work well with direct links. Search for "burner" and it'll come right up!

I just got that same burner (which absolutely rocks) at Home Depot's website for $65, and shipping was free

Ditto on the Home Cheapo site. Free shipping and this thing kicks.

Not loud at all, and you don't need to run it full-bore except when just getting the boil going. It's not a jet burner.

The difference between a NG burner and a LP burner is the size of the oriface. Propane is higher pressure then NG even with a low pressure regulator.

You can use the burner you showed but you will need to purchase an oriface for LP gas.
