Excellent! Thank you for posting. I wondered about that as far as steeping goes....do you have a flame out because of the wind and that low of throttle on the regulator? Would an additional shield from wind help?
For my next brew (Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA Clone) I plan on doing a partial mash so will probably just kill the flame and insulate the pot once to mashing temp. Looking forward to using this burner as opposed to the kitchen gas range which is only about 7000 BTUs I believe.
Again, thanks for the info and posting! Cheers!!
