Looking at getting myself set up with a gas burner for brewing. I will need to grab a 50L pot at some stage too, but figured the burner came first.
Having a look around it seems that the best choice for buying here in NZ is either the 3 or 4 ring burner that works with a standard regulator on a BBQ gas bottle.
I can find the 3 ring burners for about $70
I can find the 4 ring burners for about $130.
What I would like to know is if it is worth paying almost double for a 4 ring, or whether the 3 ring does the job just fine??
Are there any other options I could consider? I am quite happy to buy stuff in from overseas if it is cheaper and works better. Also not adverse to having to do some assembly or source some parts to make stuff work.
Right! I use a 10 tip to do my 55L boil and it keeps up really well. When I am rolling, I have the gas valve only open about a third...
Then I go through a SMM evaporation cycle for 10 mins and open it all the way up!
Then go down to a third open again.
An so on and so forth...

Yeah - it's a big fuckoff Rambo that runs off mains gas.
