Where the heck did you buy those kettles? I must have some. Do you have a closer pic of your pump setup? I see you are running 2 march pumps, how do you have them running? In parralel or series? What size pipe is your CFC made from?

How long did it take you to boil this and were you able to get a good rolling boil? I have trouble on my standard turkey fryer burner with 18 gallons. Definitely net 185k BTU, but still curious if you were able to get it going at a good boil rate and how long it took to do so.

I got the pots from a local scrapyard. I bought 5 total for $130. I sold 2 for $470 combined. The profits pretty much paid for everything else.

From 150F to boiling, about 1.5 hours. I started the flame after I collected about 20 gallons. Pretty good boil. not enough to boil over, but definitely rolling

I have the pumps plugged into outlets that are mounted in a control box with switches to turn each one on. power wire from the box plugs into a GFCI outlet. Safety first!!!

3/8 OD for my CFC. Its good for my 15 gallon setup, but a bit small for this one(as are the pumps)

I would imagine you go through propane pretty quickly with this setup??

I was really asking about series and parallel for the inlet and outlet sides of the pumps. If they are in series, which it looks like, there may be a way to get more flow outta those bad boys

I went thru 1 20lb cylinder on Saturday. I usually get 3 ten gallon brewdays out of one tank, so it would seem that I made out better this way.

Oh, I see. I was using 1 pump per application(sparge, lauter, etc) You may have something there.
