This one.

http://www.bayouclassicdepot.com/618...jet-burner.htm

I'd like to run NG on my build, and I was wondering if this is NG capable. It says it will run off low pressure, but not sure about tip sizes with NG. (if that even matters)

I dont know a lot about tip burners.

Hope this is in the right section, burners are equipment, right?

I don't see where that page says that burner will run on natural gas.

In any case, you'd have to replace all 10 tips to switch it from the propane it's clearly set up for to low pressure gas...

Cheers!

I have one of these 23 tip jet burners.

http://www.ebay.com/bhp/natural-gas-jet-burner

I'm running on house pressure natural gas and the flame is substantial. I can bring 20 gallons of hot wort from mash temps to a full rolling boil in 35 to 45 minutes.

If you do some research you can find the 23 tip burners for less than $25.

You can if you switch the tips. You can get them on ebay (10 for $20).

Ha!
Thanks greyghost!

I guess I didnt dig deep enough into the site to find the NG burners.

Would a 10 tip on NG be enough burner to work with a keggle? Or should I be looking for a 23 tip?

Yea my boil kettle is a 30 gallon stainless pot. I typically boil 20+ gallons so the 10 tip seemed a bit under-qualified for the job.

A 10 tip on a keggle should do just fine.
