Default Painted and installed the gas tree..

Put the piping together for the propane sealed it, sanded it and put some flat black spray paint on it. Three valves, someday I may want to add a stainless steel mash tun. The lowest connection is the hose to the 20 lb propane tank (outside until in use.).

Still looks like a lot of wood and a lot of flames. Love the project, just don't burn you your house down.

Yes indeed, did a test fire up today... the low pressure burners do not put out a large flame. This burner design is the third generation, burner design 1 caught fire, burner design two worked better but still heated the wood to much. This design does not even get the far ends of the burner metal hot. just warm to the touch. I can actually hold on to the far ends of the burner on legs after 45 minutes of burning and move it. Its no 100k burner but better than my meager propane kitchen stove.

Default The Brew Rig with Equipment!

Here it is,the old and the new, my old mash tun as an HLT, new cooler mash tun, and the boil kettle all ready to brew... Originally planned to go directly to a 10 gallon setup, but jumped to 5 gallons for now, since my boil kettle can handle it just needed the mash tun.

I certainly will be very cautious, thank you. Installed a CO Detector and a Smoke Detector, and have a large fire extinguisher at the ready. Also rule number 1 is if those burners are lit then I am in the room, no exception. Cannot wait to give it a go tomorrow, just will be very watchful and cautious.
