So I had a pretty extensive boil over the other day and a lot of hot wort got onto the flames of my Banjo Burner. After I settled it down, I noticed a couple of the flames are permanently out and I couldn't get them to flame anymore. Is this able to be fixed? Or did I just screw up part of my Banjo burner? Thanks.

Ben

Have you tried cleaning the sticky wort out of the little orafiices?

A drill bit of the correct size should do the trick!

+1 You can ream out the gas ports with a small drill bit. You could also disassemble the burner and soak it in a hot liquid detergent solution overnight to loosen up the dried on wort. Might require a combination of a soak and some reaming, but should be easy to fix.
