Great beer starts with premium ingredients and reliable brewery equipment. Great brewers start with Edelmetall Brü®, because it uses raw materials that surpass even the highest German quality standards—from brushed stainless steel to genuine copper finishes. And every feature is custom-designed for a specific brew-day task, incorporating details only a die-hard brewer can appreciate. This is what sets Edelmetall Brü® apart from other propane burners.
Designed to complement the stunning exterior of the Edelmetall Brü® Burner, the optional leg extensions raise your kettle to a comfortable 27” while providing the structural rigidity required to support even the heaviest kettles and biggest batches. Equipped with a reinforcing triangle at its base, these copper-clad steel extensions offer unmatched stability even on rough terrain. The additional height is perfect for draining wort directly into your fermenter or a gravity feed wort chiller setup. Take your Edelmetall Brü® to new heights and never lift a full, hot brewpot again.

4.5 / 5.061 ReviewsWater trembles at the sight of the Bru BurnerCould not be happier with this new set up. The very solid design and weight of the burner allows for piece of mind while boiling gallons of sticky deliciousness at an ergonomically satisfying height. The power of this brute is heard and felt when she is at full bore, we’re talkin’ some f@*kin’ muscle. A double batch day was easy with this supercharged addition to the garage. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is not happy with their Geo-Metro-of-a-burner.September 16, 2016OK Burner vs BlichmannI purchased this Edelmetall Burner a few years ago. It has been a major upgrade from my jet burner for sure. Then I purchased a second setup (Kettle, burner) used from a friend which included a Blichmann burner. The Blichmann seems to heat up twice as fast and use less propane.May 24, 2016Great BurnerThis is my first burner and will probably be my last. It is built well and heats water/wort very fast. A friend who uses a regular turkey fryer burner is very impressed with how fast this burner heats. Also, I have not had one spot of soot on the bottom of my kettle... clean burn, nice blue flames all the time. Efficient too, 10 gallon batch used about 9 lb of propane.November 9, 2015Beautiful & Very Well BuiltOrdered this with the optional legs extentions which really complete it.this set-up took all of 5 minutes to assemble.Its VERY WELL MADE..!! and looks great.I have not had the time to brew on it yet,but hey,its a burned and dont see why it wouldnt work as great as it looks.Will update once I get time to use.Customer Service at NB is fantastic and very competive prices.Picked this up on sale at 20% off and free shipping,so was a great deal.April 24, 2016Wow! why have I waited so longI picked up my last burner 8 yrs ago in a big box store and although it work OK, it left a black film on the bottom of my pot no matter how hard I tried to dial in the air gas mix. This Edelmetal Bru Burner was awesome! Heated quickly and no more black on the bottom. The leg extensions really helped as I don't have to bend down to stir the pot.September 28, 2016A must have for home brewers!I would agree with past comments, this thing is a BEAST! This was my first burner ever so i cant compare it with other products, but this burner is amazing. It's sturdy and quiet and does achieve boil at a very fast rate. If your thinking of buying a lower priced burner, dont do it, treat yourself to this model, you wont regret it! The copper on the upper ring does fade after your first brew, but that is strictly cosmetic. Also I would recommend using a 10 gallon kettle with this. Ive had no issues using this combo. Your future brews will thank you for buying this burner. Cheers!June 4, 2015BurnerThe best boil 15 gal of water fast lots of btu's can't wait to boil crabJune 10, 2016Hot stuffThis thing puts out some serious heat! I love it.July 27, 2016Outstanding burnerHigh quality and very efficient. I loved using the additional legs you can purchase...not quite as high as I would like, but very useful.December 20, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoEdelmetall review...Love the looks of this burner. It was the best overall height (with the leg extensions) for my current 3 tier brewing set up. Was disappointed with the following things: Not all of the burner holes would ignite when I fired it up for the first time. What I had to do was use a drill to remove some casting sand. That worked out alright but there was a single hole that just didn't get formed right during casting. I spent some time trying to drill out that last burner hole but gave up...I had to ability and tools necessary to deal with this sort of thing but if you're not a DIY'er then it might be a deal breaker. Once I started using the burner I found the needle valve to be very finicky to adjust. It's so touchy that I've just started leaving the needle valve wide open and then using the regulator to adjust burner size. I may try replacing the needle valve with something else because maintaining a steady burner temp does require constant adjustments to the regulator during a boil. I just couldn't recommend this burner to a friend after my experience... If I had this to do all over again I would purchase a Camp Chef of a similar BTU range to save some $$$ or purchase a Blichmann if price were no concern.November 8, 2015
Browse 21 questions Browse 21 questions and 42 answersI'm trying to decide between this and the Blichmann. My main concern is I want to use Natural Gas and don't see anyway this can be converted. I guess I could just change the orifice that connects to the burner with a 1/8" hole vs the usually 1/16" hole or smaller that is usually set up for propane. Maybe the Blichmann NG conversion kit would work?BEST ANSWER: The Blichmann Natural gas conversion kit will not work with the Edelmetall burner.Can this be used with a 30lb or 40lb propane tank?BEST ANSWER: As long as the propane tank has the same (US spec) valve as the standard 20 lb tank you can pick up at grocery stores/hardware stores/gas stations, then it should work.I am having trouble lighting my burner. It flashes and then there is a small flame inside the burner at the end of the needle valve only. then you have to shut the gas off until it goes out and start all over. It has only been used probably 5 times or less. It seems to work pretty good after you are able to get it lit. Any thoughts about what the problem may be?BEST ANSWER: I had this problem initially, but now I just completely shut off the needle valve....leave it closed all the time. Then light the burner by opening the larger in-line valve. Works fine every time, especially with a small propane lighter that puts the starter flame right near the burner.Will the legs support a 20 gallon brew?BEST ANSWER: Yep, use it on my 20 gal Stout boil kettle all the time.Can the burner be fitted to use a natural gas quick connect line? Is that all that is necessary to "convert" it, or is there more to the "conversion kit"?BEST ANSWER: At this time, the Edelmetall Bru Burner can only be used with propane. We do not have a conversion kit for natural gas, but hopefully we get one in the future. Cheers! -Deanna, staffHeight of burner?BEST ANSWER: The burner is about 10.5" tall. Cheers!Can an Edelmetall Bru burner be added to the Center of Gravity® Brew Sculpture?Edelmetall Brü® BurnerBEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. I understand you would like to use an Edelmetall Bru Burner with the Center of Gravity. I wouldn't recommend it, as that could pose some serious safety issues and you would have to make some serious customizing to the product to even use it with this product, which would invalidate the warranty on both products. Cheers! -Deanna, StaffMy hose fitting broke during a move. How do I get a new hose assembly?BEST ANSWER: I had one that broke once and I went to my local propane hvac dealer and they were able to hook me up with a new setup.Maybe can fit & boil a 30G kettle, but can the legs hold up a 30G kettle with a full hi-gravity mash approx. 230 lbs? (45 lb pot + 50 lb grain + 135 lbs water) I don't see a weight spec. What is weight limit for extension legs as well?BEST ANSWER: We put boards on the burner to see how many brewmasters it could hold. Held roughly 1000 lbs of brew masters. That was without leg extensions but who needs extensions if you have a 30 gallon pot. Andre? Cheers!Is there a natural gas conversion? Can this burner on propane be used indoors?BEST ANSWER: Hey Brad
Burners can be converted to natural gas
but we do not sell a conversion kit. Realistically anything that runs on propane can be converted
its just a matter of finding the right components. If the corn dryer on my farm can be converted
I think the Bru burner can
where there's a will there's a way. Unfortunately
we don't sell the way... As far as running propane indoors
it is not advised.Can this boil 12 gallons of wort?BEST ANSWER: Yes. It sure can. However, if you value your life, spend the extra $10 on the blichman. I have had this edelmetall replaced because it's cheaply made and shoots flames toward the propane tank.I have had mine for about a year now and I love it, but I'm over getting tanks refilled..I want to convert to natural gas. I can't seem to locate my manual and can't recall if it came with a conversion kit. If it did and I can't locate it, can one be purchased?BEST ANSWER: There currently isn't a conversion kit to switch the Edelmetall from propane to natural gas.First off thanks Aaron F for answering my question!
In your opinion, would a 21 inch diameter be ok for this burner?BEST ANSWER: Just install the kettle stays upside down and it will have no problem handling a kettle with a 21" diameter.
Aaron F.I've done the typical Google search and haven't easily come up with a definite answer. I see the reviews for quick boil time, and I'm just not getting those results. I finished a steep and got called away for about 30 mins, and then came back to continue the brew. My steep water was at 125+ deg (3 gallons) and it took me nearly 60 mins to bring it to a boil. I'm convinced it's not the burner, but the operator. What is the best looking flame to get max heat out of this burner?
Assumptions: 5 gallon brew pot, 3 gallon wort. Adjusting to highest blue flame without going yellow on the tip of the flames.
How do you all use the regulator adjusters and the needle valve adjuster to get the best/hottest flame? Fresh air intake adjustment?
Opinions and criticism much appreciated.BEST ANSWER: The Blichmann burner appears to be similar to our Edelmaetall. This is from their instructions:
"Fine tuning the flame: Once the burner has ignited, you will adjust the regulator and air damper to reach the desired heat setting and air/fuel mixture. Looking through the flame inspection hole at the flame, turn the air damper until the flame is slightly yellow. Then slowly turn it back until the flame turns pale blue (the yellow will be gone) and is still touching the nozzles in the burner casting. If the flame lifts off of the nozzles, or you hear a low grumbling from the flame it is getting too much air through the damper and you will need to close it slightly. If it is yellow, there is not adequate air and you will need to increase the air flow. As you increase the gas flow via the regulator, it may be necessary to readjust the air damper. Note that optimum heating speed and efficiency can only be achieved with a properly adjusted flame."Does this product have a manufacturer's warranty? Our valve stopped working.BEST ANSWER: NB offers a one year warranty on our products. There are exceptions but we are happy to help ensure the products are in good working order when used properly
under that one year warranty. Customer service is contacting you now.How much is shipping?BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. The Edelmetall Bru Burner does not qualify for the $7.99 flat-rate shipping. It would be standard shipping which is based off of weight and distance. To find out the shipping price, put the item in the shopping cart and then add your zip code to estimate the shipping rates. Cheers!Hi. Based on individual reviews on this product and their use deep cooking turkeys we purchased one for christmas however we are looking at the manual which came with our burner and it says we cant use to cook turkeys and cant use oil....do you know why??? If we cant we need to return the unit
SueBEST ANSWER: All propane burners are not recommended for heating oil. This is a safety concern and is included in instructions to protect retailers and manufacturers. If used safely, it would work the same as any other propane burner - but it also recommends not using with 10 feet of any structure and with nothing directly over head.Can the burner be hooked up to a propane line inside ?BEST ANSWER: Hello George,
Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! One could most definitely hook the burner up to a direct propane line inside, but you aren't going to want to run those burners indoors. That is unless you have an exhaust hood, and or a return air system. The burners work on a level of combustion that will deplete the oxygen from a room or home quite rapidly, and can thus cause asphyxiation/suffocation/death. Let me know if you have any further questions!Any recommendations on what to use to clean the outside copper as well as the burner? I had a boilover and don't want to use a cleaner that's too abrasive. Thanks!BEST ANSWER: I would avoid Ajax/Comet type things, and use no-scratch cleansers like Bon Ami for that copper part; with some soaking and a bit of elbow grease, it should come right off. The burner itself, you could use a "tougher" cleanser, and a scrubbing pad. -Mike W, Northern BrewerOn the brochure, it claims that the burner surface diameter is adjustable to fit "any" diameter...what is the MAX diameter this can hold?BEST ANSWER: With the kettle stays in the up position it can fit a kettle up to 19" in diameter. If you flip those over it can fit any diameter kettle.
Aaron F.It worries me a bit that NB sells a replacement needle valve for this burner. Why would that be needed?
