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.

This is the best burner for homebrewers on the market. Works great, has great upgrades to Natural Gas or leg extensions.

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"

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.

Mine as well be a jet engine!
Makes my old 55,000 BTU burner look like a bic lighter. Raised 13.5 gallons of water to mash temps in about 15 min in 40 degree weather in the garage. Brought to a boil from about 150 degrees in about 30 minutes. Amazing. Shaves time off the brew day!
55,000 BTU burner on right. Child's play...

Worked great! Easy to assemble. The leg extensions definitely help with elevation. They are a little uneven, but easily was corrected with support.

Disappointed with the polishing on the welding
Just arrived today, haven't used it yet but I was disappointed to see some sloppy polishing in the welding right on the front of the unit. First place you see. Only cosmetic, but I admittedly purchased this not only because of the function, but I also liked that it was really good looking hardware. My advise is to get the edelmetall instead, better quality for the same price.

Best burner
Burner is amazing I was able to bring six and a half gallons to a boil very fast and then turn it down to a even rolling boil temp. I use a 40 lb propane tank never a frost issue.
