A full wort boil is an easy way to improve any extract batch and it is essential when moving to all-grain. But it can be hard to do indoors. The Dark Star® propane burner makes the move outdoors easy.

Upgrade your homebrewery and get some fire under that kettle for the lowest price around. Look at that - you have some cash left over to make more beer!


The Dark Star® Burner features include:
  • 54,000 BTU output
  • 17" wide, 12" tall
  • Boil 5 gallons in about 15 minutes
  • Supports kettles up to 10 gallons in capacity

Product Details

Who are we kidding? The low price sets the Dark Star® Burner and Stand apart from the pack of propane burners. This desirably priced torch-style burner and stand makes your brew day easier and shorter, allowing you to do a full-volume boil which improves the quality of your ingredients and finished beer.

You'll be amazed at the heat this 54,000 BTU burner puts out. So much that in our Brew Cave tests, the Dark Star® Burner heated 5 gallons of water from 67°F to boiling in 17 minutes while using only 0.8 lb of propane. The burner's stand has a diameter of 17 inches, stands about 12 inches off the ground and has a built-in wind guard with ignition port for a long-stemmed lighter. It can support a boil kettle up to 10 gallons in capacity.

This burner works great with both our Tall Boy® Kettles and the MegaPot 1.2™. An immersion wort chiller, like our Silver Serpent™, makes chilling a full boil much quicker than an ice bath.

I have read some of the reviews and it talks about scorching on the outside of the pots (which I do not care about ) but do you aslo get any scorching on the inside of the pot ?
Bill M on May 15, 2015
Best Answer: It is possible to get some "scorching" marks on the outside of the pot when the blend of air and gas is not quite right. You should be able to adjust this with the damper plate to achieve a nice blue flame to avoid that. Most people do not have issues scorching on the inside of the kettle, but this is fairly dependent on how high you have the gas, and what type of kettle you are using (thinner walled kettles may not spread heat over as large of a surface area).

How do I make this burner less sooty?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2014
Best Answer: Increase the gap between the center casting and the main casting by using a 1mm shim, or a fully threaded bolt and locknut to allow the casting to stand off the main casting. This will improve air flow and result in a more lean air/fuel mixture.

Is this burner big enough to support a converted sankey keg?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2014
Best Answer: No. While the burner itself is strong enough to support that weight, the heat output is not optimal for a batch of that size.
