We did it!
All of our suppliers told us we were nuts. For years, the BTU's on outdoor burners have been going down. What with deep-fried turkey burn the deck down liquid fire running down the drive-way, you can't blame our wholesalers for wanting to lower their insurance premiums and with that, BTUs.
Customer comments and message board woes have not escaped our attention, Homebrewers want more. Nobody would do it for us, so we did it ourselves.
We've designed a stand and assembled a burner with a 10 psi regulator, a brass control valve and 48" of LP Hose (hose style will vary based on availability). These burners will top out at a whopping 220,000 BTUs, just like the days when deep frying a turkey(and homebrewing) was deemed insane!
With that being said, by purchasing this burner you assume all responsibilities for not setting you, your friend, your house, your friend's house... your friend's cat, on fire. You should also be completely prepared and expect to singe arm (or eyebrow) hair.
These burners are made for homebrewing. They are 14" square across the top for a large stock pot (Designed for 1/2 and 1/4 Barrels) They are 11" tall. Perfect for full boils and all-grain brewing.
If you are not getting the best flame possible out of your propane burner, you may have triggered a safety valve in the propane regulator body. This occurs when the gas flow through the regulator is too great. You will need to disconnect the regulator from your propane tank to release the safety valve. While connecting your regulator to your propane tank, it is very important that the propane tank and all needle valves are completely closed. Once the regulator is correctly connected to your closed tank, open the propane tank slowly to allow gas to flow into the regulator. You can now open the needle valve enough to ignite your burner. Once the burner is lit you can slowly open the needle valve until you reach the desired flame intensity.
