hi all, and Happy New Year!
I use a keggle and a "low-profile" banjo burner for 10-gallon AG batches. I feel like I'm really not getting very good use out of the propane I'm burning, so I am going to try an experiment. I was hoping people might chime in with advice/warnings:
The idea is simple: Put the burner in the bottom of a 55-gallon drum which has 2" holes cut into the sides @ the bottom (for air intake). Then place the keggle on top of that, and have a 16" hole cut in the drum lid so the keggle pokes out the top. Wrap the outside with insulation and fire it up.
Kinda like a blacksmith forge. What do you folks think?
