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"

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.

This thing hardly uses any propane
This burner paid for itself with the amount of propane I save.

Blichman Hellfire Burner
This burner is amazing. I wish I had switched to the Hellfire long ago. I will be adjusting my brew day schedule. No more sitting around waiting. This burner took a half to one hour off my brew day.

Hellfire burner
I’ve used several other burners in the past. The hell fire is by far my favorite. The stainless steel construction is meant to last and is easy to clean. The burner is easy to lite and simple to control. The flame is super hot and brought 10 gallons from sparge to boil in around 10 minutes. I was also able to throttle it back and maintain a slow rolling boil. So far I’ve done 4 batches on 1 propane bottle. The hooks at the edge of the burner were easy to adjust to hold my 5,10, and 28 gallon pots. Overall it’s been a great experience.

Pretty good burner, not the best in my opinion though
The flame laps around the sides of the kettle and transmit a significant amount of lateral heat - so careful of things that might be alongside the burner (like your propane tank!). I wish the heat shield went all around, instead of just the front. Also, I'm not a big fan of the flow control being at the end of the hose near the propane connect. For the same money, I also have an Edelmetall burner, which I prefer. Although the listed BTUs are much higher on the Blichmann, I find that if I crank the gas, it sounds like a jet engine, the flames really shoot out from under my kettle, it generates a lot! of ambient heat, and it burns a lot! of propane. When I adjust the Blichmann to a level that seems appropriate, my wort comes to boil in about the same time with Edelmetall (I do big mashes, and split into two boils - parti-gyle style). I like the heat shield and gas valve on the Edelmetall better as well.

Very happy with it
We ran it for about 6 hours straight to boil water for canning sweet corn and it worked great and was not near as loud as I thought it might be on high wide open,actually it was quieter than our old burner that put out only about half as much heat

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!!
