Now That's A Fire!

I hooked my 32 nozzle burner up just to do a non-brewing test of it.  It seems to work fine as you can see from the photo above, or the video below.  I used some fittings to reduce the 3/4" burner inlet down to 3/8", which is the size of the flexible gas hose.  I'm going to have to take them apart and reconnect them because I used standard teflon tape which is not supposed to be used for gas line.  I have since discovered the error of my ways and bought some tape specifically for gas.  Safety first!

Now I need to build a stand.


  1. What did you use for a regulator? Needle valve, ball valve, or something different?

  2. Johnny, I just use the shut-off valve built into the external gas outlet. I assume it's a ball valve. I didn't install a separate one further down the line because the existing one is so close to where I brew.
