I would pony up for the bigger ones. You won't regret it in the long run.

That's kind of what I thought. . .

My 170,000's take about 25 minutes to reach a boil.


I also considered going 200,000 on the boil kettle alone, and 100,000 on the mash tun and liquor tun.

although seeing as how I've not spared any expense thus far on the brew system, why start now?

Yeah, that's kind of what I thought. I use a HERMS system, so to ramp up temps in the HLT, I think it would be best to go with 200,000 on the HLT, and 200,000 on the kettle and a 100,000 on the mashtun.

In fact, I think I'll order them tonight.

I'll post pictures whenever I have this thing setup and running, to be sure.

Got my burners today!!! I ended up ordering 3 of the 200,000 BTU burners (NB was out of 100,000 burners).

Here's a pic--these suckers are monsters. I called my plumber today, and he's excited to hook these up and test 'em out.




Here's the gas line (next to the water filter) that all this will be hooked up to.

question now is, I have the three 170,000 propane burners with flame guards, as well as the propane hookup and regulator that I'm not using anymore. I'm considering selling them. What would be a fair asking price for these?? Any offers??

I would guess $30-40 would be fair for the lot, although I don't need them.

I'd be interested in maybe one burner and the reg. How much? I was considering going with nat gas but I like the portability of propane for group brews and such.
