We are very happy with the performance of the high pressure hurricane burners.

As I have learned about heat transfer from Kladue.... the 210k btu is not realistically attainable. not with out 2' high flames and melted thermometers. : ) I believe we are between 60 and 70k btu transfer to the kettles. We are able to heat the strike water for a 1bbl batch in 35-40 mins, and bring the full 35 gallons of wort to a boil in about the same time...maybe 45-50 mins....

We actually do a pre-boil half way through the sparge. We bring 50% of the wort volume to a full rolling boil before we continue sparging....this has had a enormous positive affect on the protein break.

Good to know! I recently acquired a blichmann burner rated at 70k btu i believe, and it is total overkill for my 10gal batches. Should be good to see it in action on a 1 bbl batch. May have to switch to NG as it can kill a 5 gallon LP tank in about 2 or 3 brews if i run it full open

Where did you buy the enclosure for your control panel? This is what I've been looking for.

I broke an LED so am waiting for the replacement to show up as well...arrgh.

We are close to firing this thing up!!
The Rig looks great! Aren't you setting up PIDs on your panel?
One more question where did you find the electric gas valves?
Thanks
