I was wondering when you are running two burners if you can just spilt of one gas bottle after the reg or do you run 2 regs off the one bottle oooor do you use two bottles.

what to do !

with the low pressure regs i use two bottles.
another handy thing if one runs out you don't have to drive half tanked to the servo.
since ussually only one burner runs at a time.

iv'e never tried running both at the same time off one reg so couldn't comment there but iam sure it would not work that well.
most of the hard core grainers have moved onto the more powerfull burners and high pressure regs now.
but my setup which is similar to what you discribed is doing me fine for now.
by the way the high pressure burners are cheaper than the camping store ring burner types.

you can get the burners in all capital cities.
i'll just have to check the name of the places and get back to you.
the ones i speak of are only $20 each. i think the adelaide strore is called 'go power' or something like that i can't quite remember.

high pressure regs are the same price as low pressure i think.

nice burners bigd. that second one looks great.
i would upgrade but i'd rather spend the bucks on malt, hops and yeast for the moment.

cheers jayse

bearing in mind guys these above burners are from the land of a million plus homebrewers who have every conceivable thing at there finger tips and for good prices also.not like us ozzzie brewers who have to become very resourceful or save the bucks.
my piddly two ring and immersion heater do the trick at the mo.

yeap i'd like to upgrade but i drink too much and need the money for malt and hops.

bigfella i'd look into getting the high pressure job.
after all their cheaper and better i wish i new before i brought my three ring jobs as i bet most people who went the ring burners do.

the people i know who use the powerfull burners also drilled out the inside of the tap a little more too to get even more out of them.

Now all I need to know is where to get them. I've had a look on the web but not to much luck here in Australia.

ANyone know if you can get a good burner that can plug into your plumbed gas. Use the BBQ at the moment but would like to get something a bit better but not deal with bottles.

Bigfella,

Try these guys.

http://www.gameco.com.au/

I went and checked them out on Friday. They're called Mongolian Burners and come in two sizes: 32 point (130 megajoule) and a 23 point(90 megajoule). The 23 point will set you back $96 all up. When I finally get mine, I'm going to need to get the plumber to install three bayonets (one for each of the burners I'll need) and get the regs and the bottles outside upped to cope for 350 megajoules. The guy in the Sydney shop's name is Corin

Bigfella, you must be able to get them over there somewhere. I'm here in Tassie and I have a disposal store named Uncle Sam's. They have those first burners that Jayse showed that are mounted in a steel frame like the yank turkey fryers for $50-$59 (varying heights of stands), they don't have a hose or reg though.

Good luck. JD

Jason,

Did you ever have any progress on this front? I am looking into the same question.
