Hey guys my wife is getting on my case about me brewing in the house since we had a baby 7 months ago. I'm looking into brewing my wort outside to avoid any more problems. I'm thinking about buying this outdoor stovetop. Please advise me on your opinions.

Thanks,

Matt

109 dollars for 21k BTUs?? Nah, for that kind of money you can get a turkey fryer, complete with a 7-8 gallon boiling pot. It will get you boiling a lot faster, and if you ever decide to go AG, you're already on your way.

Any recommendations I don't mind spending money for quality. I've always used the stove but things need to move outdoors haha.

Also, how long will a standard propane tank last?

Thanks for your help.

I have been doing some research and some threads suggest changing the regulator?

Something like that yes. You can find them for $40 or so and at times even cheaper. My 20 gal propane will last me at least four brew sessions.

I would highly recommend the Banjo Cooker if you already have a pot. I love mine!

I've got a bayou classic, works great. I am usually at a rolling boil in approx. 10min with a 3.5 gal boil and about 17-20 for a full 5 gallons. And that is outside during a MI winter!

I get 4-5 brews out of a 5 gallon tank. What is the volume you're boiling?

I've got the Bayou Classic also and the wife loves me for it. She was not as keen on the indoor odors as I was. I'm not sure why you'd need to change the regulator, mine seems to function very nicely.
