I've just moved to Australia and go my home brewery setup. I brewed last week with a new burner but couldn't get a good blue flame. Therefore my kettle was covered in soot, which wasn't ideal (some may have dropped in my wort, orange flame means inefficient boil, etc.)

I'm just wondering what everyone else uses out there? Any recommendations?

Sounds like you need more air to gas ratio, is there no air adjustment?

No, no air adjustment, unfortunately.
Possibly got the wrong size gas jet in it then, (if its got a screw in jet that is). Are you use LPG or Natural gas? Natural gas jets have a slightly larger orifice than LPG jets, so if you are using lpg thru natural gas jets, you will have the wrong air/gas ratio, as lpg is denser than natural gas.
