I need to get better burners..... That looks like it might have been burning a little dirty.

I just looked at the Blichmann I've been running for three years and it doesn't have that sooty look to the burner nor the apparent deposits on the inside of the wind shield, so I'm going to agree it was probably running on the rich side.

What did the bottom of the kettle look like? My kettles end a brew session with no discernible color to their bottoms...

Cheers!

I have been running the same Bayou Classic for over 9 years. Recently I have been looking into upgrading my brew day volume from 11.50 gallons, to 21.50 gallons end product. That would mean only brewing once a month . So, if I am going to upgrade, might as well get that one more burner I have been wanting now for a few years. Once my tax check rolls in, after reading this thread, I'll be buying a Blichman Burner and a 30 gallon kettle. Great thread!

Sething else, I noticed that quite a lot of you guys using the Blichmann Burner say that no soot is on the bottom of the kettle when you are done brewing. I find that amazing as I always thought of that soot as a normal by product of a burner. Every clean up for every batch includes cleaning all that soot off the kettle. I can not wait to get tis burner and see what a quiet, efficient, and clean burner looks like.

If you tune these burners well they burn as clean as a kitchen gas range. I did another double brew session yesterday and the bottom of my BK was perfectly clean at the end of the day...

Cheers!

I have a 15 gallon UI kettle and it fits perfectly on this burner. It has adjustable sliding pieces that center the pot and keep it from moving. This is a great burner and is a great balance between power and efficiency.

I have 50 or so batches on my Blichmann floor burner and I have never had soot on my boil kettle. Love my Blingmann stuff!
