Q: When using propane, would I need a different orifice for altitudes of 4,500-6,000?
A: The orifice would not need to be changed over but may see a slight reduction in the btu output due to the altitude
Q: I plan to buy the Blichmann needle valve to use with this burner. Will the orifice work to connect the burner to the needle valve?
A: The Blichmann needle valve is set for natural gas, but the orifice on it is designed for the wider opening on the larger banjo style burners. The flared part of the orifice would thread into the needled valve fine, but the pipe thread going into the burner is too large.
Q: What size is the flare fitting that attach the gas line to?
A: This burner no longer ships with the flare fitting. But you can buy item 35-1676 and be compatible with standard propane regulators.
Q: Hi, how far should the burner be mounted from the kettle? Thanks!
A: Our burner stands mount the burner 2.5" below the pot.
Q: Is there any way you could estimate the difference in BTU's (or list what the BTU drop would be)for this burner if going from LPG to NG ?

Q: Will your 10 psi regulator w/dual SS hose thread into the these or do you need a different connection?
A: Absolutely, that hose assembly has the proper orifice(s) to use this burner.
Q: Can this burner run on natural gas?
A: If you replace the orifice with a natural gas orifice you can use this burner with natural gas. Make sure to check with your local building codes if you plan on running natural gas piping.
Q: What regulator should be used with this burner?
A: You can use a 10psi regulator ( Item Number 35-1677 ) for standard brewing purposes, or a 30psi assembly ( Item Number 35-4295 ) to get the maximum BTUs out of this burner.
Q: These burners look exactly like the 55,000 btu burners commonly found elsewhere. How are these differernt. Also, are these really Over 3x the banjo burner BTU rating?
A: The burners themselves don't affect BTU's much. It's the flow rate and/or the psi rating of the regulator. These burners with the tank and needle valve wide open, are rate at 220,000 BTU's.
Q: Do you sell NATURAL GAS burners?
A: You can use this burner for natural gas. You would need to purchase the natural gas orifice (item 99-1677).
Q: Hello, im building a gravity brew stand with 2 burners. What's the btu's on Part number 35-1674, it's not listed. Also what's the regulator I will need for that burner. I'm looking for the most btu possible, is this burner the highest? Thanks!
A: The, BTU's in a burner system are determined by the propane regulator but also you need to have a burner capable of a high pressure regulator. Most people use the 10 PSI regulator to deliver up to 220,000 BTU's and is certainly adequate for any 15-20 gallon system.
