Description

Efficient, fast, and versatile.  The new burner from Blichmann Engineering is appropriately named HellFire™!   This dual mode capability burner is unlike anything else on the market and is sure to satisfy all your heating needs.  No wonder it is patent pending!  This custom made burner is tuned to operate in high efficiency mode, and also in a secondary high power mode.  In the high power mode, you'll be amazed with 140,000 BTU/hr output for blazing fast heating - double the power of the previous design.  Waiting for a boil is now a thing of the past.  In the high efficiency mode, you'll get 80,000 BTU/hr and superb heat transfer to the wort and whisper quiet operation.  Plenty of power to keep a rolling boil on a 20 gal batch of beer.  Even our efficiency mode has significantly more power than the competition!  To top off all that power we include a patent pending heat shield to keep that massive power off your valve and thermometer and direct it to your wort.

Features:

  • Dual mode capacity
    • High Power Mode: 140,000 BTU/hr
    • Efficiency Mode: 80,000/hr
  • Patent Pending Clip-on Heat Shield keeps valves cool
  • Kettle Retaining bars adjust to accommodate kettles up to 20" in diameter
  • Heavy Gauge Rust free Stainless Steel Construction will keep you brewing for years!
  • Designed for outdoor use, the heat shield and body will protect your brew from wind

Can accommodate kettles up to 20" Diameter or 250 lbs. (175 when using leg extensions)

Leg Extensions are expected to be available in Late November.

Would this still function on the ground without the legs?
Peter Geyer on Aug 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, absolutely. I and several of my brew buddies have this burner and none have the legs. However, it is bit more difficult to light and to see whether (or how high) the flame is burning at ground level.
What is the diameter of the heat shield around the burner? ( Not the width with legs just the heat shield.)
Casey schmiett on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 11.5"

Amazing!!!
This thing is amazing. I was able to get 19.5 gallons of wort to a boil in less than 30 minutes. And it wasn’t even at full power.

First class American made burner
I looked at every single available burner system I could find, and found many. From $39 and up, most of the less expensive models were made with some form of painted steel and imported from China. Most reviews complain of quickly peeling paints with nasty smells that followed. And lack of flame control was almost always a top complaint on the less expensive burners. One nicer looking and more expensive unit in particular that had some nice copper colored accents and costs about as much as the HellFire burner had complaints of the copper finish burning off after the first or second use leaving it quite unsightly after the occurrence.

This Blichman HellFire burner is a BEAST; and looking at photos simply don't do it justice. With a solid stainless steel body, a massive proprietary burner, and a high quality regulator and hose, it absolutely blows away any burner I have ever seen and is 100% worth the $150 asking price from morebeer.com. If you want consistent, predictable wort boils and a burner that will last a lifetime, don't hesitate; just buy the HellFire burner because you won't regret it. And, you will save yourself a ton of time and money spend on inferior burners that you end up having to replace anyway. And for me, the biggest bonus of all is that it's made in America which helps preserve the jobs of fellow Americans.

This is, without question, one of the best purchase I have ever made.

Happy Brewing!

Awesome burner!
Impressive out of the box - so glad I bought it over the Bayou burner I was also considering. Worked great in a recent boil - no pint to burn and deal with, just good clean efficient - and incredible out - to handle the brew day tasks.

Looks good, burns good, brews good!
This burner is absolutely fantastic. I bought it bearing in mind I would be immediately converting to natural gas rather than using propane. I purchased the conversion kit that Blichmann sells separately. It burns clean and HOT with no putzing around with adjustments. I couldn't be happier with this product. Top quality!

Great Burner!
Great burner really does the job when you are brewing and cuts the time in half when you need to get that water temperature to rise.
