As I stated in a previous post, I am about to begin building my brew stand. I am using keggles for 10 gallon batches. What type of banjo burner do I need. Money IS an object so I dont need to go over the top with a jet burner or anything. Thanks as always everyone. Best site on the web!!

Also in the same process as you! First off, good luck! Post pics!
I was pointed in the direction of a 6" cast iron burner. They said it would boil that much.
Go to agrisupply.com, type in 6" cast iron burner. It'll come up. I just ordered 3, $12.99 each!

I don't know what size you'll need but i can tell you my SQ14 is just enough to boil 7 gallons of wort in a 9.5 gallon triple bottom pot. I am looking to upgrade

So I would go bigger than that.

The burner I'm using now is just a standard propane burner, like a turkey fryer, that has a very small, maybe 3" (?) burner on it. I do 6 gal batches, so I'm boiling 7 gal regularly, and it hasn't given me an issues bringing that to a boil.
BUT I haven't used the new system burners yet, so I can't tell you 100% that it'll boil it.. Other than what I've been told.

No problem! Someone was nice enough to share that info with me, so I thought id do the same. I spent HOURS googling suppliers looking for prices. Some gems are buried too deep, haha. Happy brewing!
