    Covering Your Boil - Oops?

    i thought about that with commercial/microbreweries. I never had the pot fully closed throughout the entire boil. Not once. I think it'll be okay. It was an AG recipe. I don't plan on covering even partially again. It was getting quite windy and chilly out near the end of the brew day, so i...

    Covering Your Boil - Oops?

    Last night was my first time brewing outdoors on a propane burner. As the sun started to set, i worried a bit about two things. - Bugs deciding to land in the wort - Heat Loss (outside temp was dropping quick) I had my lid on PARTIALLY (steam was still escaping) i know that most people...

    Bought New Burner - Not Hot Enough?

    I think i should be alright then. This one has an adjustable regulator and at full blast is pretty loud and produces a nice blasting blue flame. Maybe i'll test it this week and plan a brew day cheers :mug:

    Bought New Burner - Not Hot Enough?

    havent had the chance to yet :P figured id check and see if anyone had used this burner first. I have brewed 5 gallon batches on my stove top before with no issue (except it taking forever to boil), so i assumed that nearly any outdoor burner would work better (faster)

    Bought New Burner - Not Hot Enough?

    I recently purchased this burner from the local walmart. It look exactly like an SQ14 burner and it said that it was "Perfect for boiling" so i figured it would be great. Sturdy and well crafted it seems but i'm worried it wont put out enough heat to boil 6 gallons. I cant find specs for the...
