I built my own burners so I have basically 2 flame throwers under each kettle. MAJOR BTUs and low costs. "I love the smell of propane in the morning. It reminds me of brewing..."

Electric but it really does give me the sh1ts.
Getting new kitchen new year (hopefully) and the gas stove I get will have a HUGE burner on it. ...wonder what the output of the wok burners are. (Ideal would be the burners in the chinese takeaways! they are HOT)

EDIT : just googled wok burners and it looks like 40-60K range. Could be possible!

looking at that - my idea of a wok burner looks like a match flame. Plus if there was boil over that would be bad in the (new) kitchen

I use our kitchen gas range.The 2 right hand burners each swivel in for big kettles or griddles i suppose.We use a 58qt SS pot(16"dia) and it works pretty good.We boil 7.5 gals of wort and i just have to cover it up halfway with the lid for a good violent boil.I love being able to do the whole works in the kitchen without having to lug any liquids around.Not to mention that I can brew anytime indoors without dealing with the weather,especially this time of year.
Cheers

Turkey cooker, outside at any temp down to minus10, then I retreat to the garage. Plus all the cold makes a real good chiller. Just stomp a hole in a snowbank and plunk it in.
