- Product Details
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.

- 4.6 / 5.052 ReviewsWorth the money no questionJust fired this bad boy up and did 2 batches....... boy does it get the water to a boil fast!!! Best part is the bottom of my kettle stays clean as opposed to my Dark Star burner that left a lot of carbon deposit on the bottom which was more work to clean it, it is also a smaller burner than the dark star. This burner is very sturdy like a rock I can even stand on it and I am 225 and it shows no signs of stress at all. I really like the adjustments to control the flame, it burns hot so I know the good looks wont last but I know the burner will continue to produce excellent results and that is why I bought it. The 3 leg design sits more sturdy on my garage floor than a 4 leg would be so that is why I went with this over the name brand product. I don't expect the prom queen looks to last but I expect the quality result will this is a great product, I am glad I spent my money on it.May 9, 2015Thank Odin, this thing rocks!I've used a banjo burner for years, and for the last few years, I've worn earplugs because it's just. that. LOUD! So I decided to splurge o the the Edalmatall burner and holy smokes ... it's soooo quiet, yet far more efficient than the banjo! The price was worth it! Very happy with the burner!July 25, 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, 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, 2016Solid burnerThe burner works great.

Also, sexy.August 16, 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, 2016The Edelmiester!!I thought had left a review on this when I had purchased about 2 years ago, guess not! Well the burner is the best, as soon as I received it I made a set of legs to get it to a good working height. It's fast and fits the pot and there isn't a brew I do that I am sooooo glad that I bought this burner!April 10, 2016
- Browse 13 questions Browse 13 questions and 28 answersWill the legs support a 20 gallon brew?BEST ANSWER: Yep, use it on my 20 gal Stout boil kettle all the time.My 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.I'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: Do not buy anything from these ripoff people, They lie about those chinese products and say they are german made, they are not, they ship out used damaged products, stay away from northern brewer.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!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 BrewerIs 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.On 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.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.
