I am working on my home brew stand and picked up a couple 10" banjo burners. I am getting ready to mount them and I am wondering what height I should mount them at. Can anyone tell me what the ideal height is from the bottom of the kettle to the top of the burner?

My Blichmann burners use the same burner and from the tip of the nozzles to the top of the pot rests is 2.75". If you're using flat bottom kettles I don't think you could go wrong with the same spacing, but if you're using keggles, make the distance something closer to 4"...

Cheers!

Yep, planning on keggles. Here is another photo a little further along.

Thanks for the info!

I would also consider installing a windscreen as well, for those windy days, unless you will be using it in the garage!

The plan is to primarily brew in the garage but I may add a wind screen later if I need it.

This is a common question that I had myself when I was assembling my single tier. The distance on mine is 2 3/8".

Here is the thread I used that has a lot of good info with boil times at different distances.
