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

Awesome burner!!!
This burner is the best. The control is very precise and has a lot of adjustment. It burns really hot. Brings temp of my 20 gallon Spike boil kettle up in no time. Less wait time equals faster brew day!!! Loving it!!

well worth the money
Just brewed with this burner for the first time since it arrived. I was very surprised on how quiet and efficent this was compared to my previous turkey fryer burner. Construction and ease of use is what you would expect with any Blchmann product.

Super nice! Very well built, this will last a lifetime. I have used it, and the two things I noticed the most is how well it heats up the water but also how incredibly quiet it is. What a bonus !

Worth every penny
This was a huge upgrade for me, and one I should have made a long time ago. I had been using a cheap burner from a home improvement store and it worked ok, but I didn’t realize what I was missing until I bought the Hellfire. Yes, it’s crazy powerful, but more impressive is the control of that power. I’m able to hold really low flames consistently, without needing to keep a close eye on it to make sure it doesn’t go out. The air damper adjustment works well, and you can really fine tune the air/gas mix. Then there is the power factor. I was able to take 1 gallon of 60 deg F tap water to a boil in 3 minutes, and that wasn’t at full power. While I would recommend this to anyone looking for more power and control, I would warn those with 5 gallon brew pots that the burner is only slightly smaller than my 5 gallon pot, which leaves a ton of heat spilling up the sides when it’s turned up. The full stainless construction is awesome. It’s nice to not buy a burner and have the nice new paint peel off on the first use.

Love it. I am using it to boil maple sap to make maple syrup. Very fast boil and maintains consistent heat even in the wind.

Really quick to heat strike water and wort
This things burns hot. That’s a good and bad thing. Good in the sense that it heated up my strike water and wort quickly, but bad that it did it too fast! Have to learn my process timing again. Only problem I had with this was I didn’t have my boil kettle set properly and melted the plastic cover on my valve handle.

Love it, it puts out the BTU to boil my 10gal batches in my keg boiler fast, and then will turn down low when I need it. I added a BBQ e-start to mine to make it easy start.

Great Burner. A bit tough to control gas flow.
The burner is great. Very well built. I added the natural gas conversion kit so I can use my home gas supply. It is challenging to effectively throttle the gas flow. It seems to be either "on" or "off." There is a bit of control when the valve is nearly completely closed, but the rest of the range does not seem to adjust much. Perhaps it is adjusting the flow without a lot of visual indication. Either way, it is tough to throttle.
