I like the design and simple implantation of the burners but the btu's are the only thing that's holding me back.
Either way - Happy brewing!
As for the burners, I would not just go out and buy this stove. I happened to have it and made it work. If you look close you will see that I swapped out the original burners for Banjo BG12's. Lots of people here use them. I have lit them but still have not performed a Dry "wet" run of the system yet.
I also have read on here in multiple places that the 30K BTU's might extend your boil times a little however they use way less gas then the 60K BTU's. For me my brew day is just that a "brew day". and because I step heat my water it really does not make much of a difference.
I go from ~75 Degree water (in Florida our water is always warm) to ~166 for my strike water, then while I mash I can re-heat up more water for my sparge. once I do my first runnings I turn the boil kettle up to full blast ( a trick I learned from Bobby) No since in wasting that time.
Now that I think about it I don't see any issues with the 30K BTU's LOL I have just convinced my self... But I did swap them out for the BG12's anyhow!!!!
