Yeah I did a test burn with water in a keg just to get the paint off of it. When I purchased it I knew there was no way that the paint right under the flame would survive the propane burner. Now it's ready for my double or tripple brew day on Sunday.

How much propane does that sucker use for 5 gal batches?

I have the same burner and I got 5 full boil 5 gal. batches out of the standard 20# tank. I also used it on my grill to so I maybe could get 6 to 7 out of it.

Thanks for the reply! I keep spares around but I was just trying to figure the economics of it all.

Just remember to fill it up at a gas station where they sell propane. 7 bucks instead of 20 to exchange!!

Well I was hoping to get two brews under the belt tonight but I just ran out of time. I brewed my American IPA tonight with the keggle as well as a new immersion chiller I put together today. Everything went really good being my first full boil. Tomorrow I will be brewing a Belgian White and will hopefully remember to take a few pictures of the setup in action. The burner boiled very quickly and my chiller got the beer to pitching temperatures in about 10-15 minutes or so.

Gotta keep filling up these carboys!

WOOOHOOO!!! GRATS!!! That's cool man! Just remember to be extra careful cleaning around those weldless fittings. They can be problematic.
