I tried this last night. I turned the regulator down to a very low pressure and was able to really adjust the burners to a low simmering type flame and like you said something I could use during mash recirculation to maintain or raise temp slightly

It lost all that windy roar that it had on the lowered setting. I am thinking that I am going to have a very wide range of adjustability. I am still thinking about getting some HP orifices and seeing what they do...just to have the option
