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 / 5.073 ReviewsWell worth it!Used my Edelmetal burnet for the first time last weekend after replacing my Darkstar burner. It heated the liquid quickly, kept a constant boil sne best of all, didnt coat the bottom of my brew kettle with black soot.....hallelujah!!! Highly recommend it!March 31, 2018Purchased
1 month agoPoor PackagingSaw at least one other review comment. Thought it was worth mentioning again. I have not used the unit yet but hope that everything works. With the condition of the inner box (double boxed due to weight of unit I assume) I have my concerns. It looks like it went through a very rough shipping process. The legs had completely penatrated the inner packing and the inner box. The air damper and screw were free floating in the box. I actually had to totally dismantle the box to find the screw which had worked its way under one of the legs and pushed to the outer box. No washer to be found (from the instructions it looks like there should be one?! After assembly I wasn't too excited about the damper. With the screw its either too tight or too loose. I used blue loctite to hold in place to create a little friction. Also, for those with minimal storage space, when this thing is totally assembled the needle valve and hose protrude far enough out that I will have to be creative about how I store and keep it sufficiently protected.March 1, 2018Purchased
1 month agoAwesome BurnerWhen I first started to boil water on an outdoor BBQ burner it took 45 min. to get up to 170 degrees for 5 gallons of water. This burner had 5 gallons boiling in less than 20min. Easy to setup and easy to maintain a constant slow rolling boil. Great product, very well made.February 20, 2018Purchased
2 months agoNice burner. Bad packaging.I received this burner in the mail and the packaging was a bit busted up. It looks as though, while in transit, the feet of the burner cut their way through the cardboard bottom of the inner box, the inner box, and the feet were about to make their way through the outer box. It looks as though the durability of the burner helped keep it from getting damaged but the boxes it came in were damaged. I also noticed there was no packaging material from keeping the burner from getting knocked around except for 2 folded pieces of cardboard on top and bottom which didn't help much from it moving around. I have pictures but doesn't appear I can upload them with this review.
On the burner itself I noticed that there was some rust at the front of the venturi tube where the gas control assembly connects. I don't think it will cause any issue just surprised to see there was rust on a brand new burner. Overall it feels like a pretty stout (pun intended) burner. Will be using it for the first time next week.February 15, 2018Purchased
2 months agoThis is my second Edelmetall Bru Burner. It is the best burner I've ever used. If you are using propane, I wouldn't waste my time with anything else. I love it.February 9, 2018Purchased
2 months agoFreeNorthern Brewer provided a great way for me to upgrade to all grain brewing by providing this burner free along with my purchase of equipment. It was packaged well and arrived earlier than expected. I will review it further once I've done my first all grain brewing. - Dave VJanuary 30, 2018Purchased
2 months agoIt gets the job done!I got this burner for myself for x-mas. Brewed on the December 26th and January 1st in 20 degree and 5 degree temps. Got my 5 gallons to boil in 20min both times without maxing out the burner. I think I still have enough gas for one more brew before needing to refill. This thing is for real and a huge upgrade over my old turkey fryer. Cheers!January 8, 2018Purchased
4 months agoNew Burner UnitAs I have just received it I can't tell you how it runs, but if it is anything like it looks it will work just fine. The copper accents make it look like a piece of art. Can wait to fire this bad boy up. Thanks for the fast delivery.December 20, 2017Purchased
4 months agoGreat BurnerBurns quiet and efficient with plenty of BTU’s for a 6.5 gallon boil. 4 stars due to the cheap hose and propensity to light inside the air valve and not the burner itself. Much better then my old jet burner and the legs are worth every cent!November 15, 2017Purchased

- Browse 29 questions Browse 29 questions and 52 answersIm considering this for use with a converted 15gallon keg for a brew kettle. Would this be able to do that job?BEST ANSWER: Yes it should handle the job I bought leg extentions also. The 3 base finger supports have a lot on adjustment. Mine are adjusted to a mega pot 10 gallon pot. A lot of btu's of this burner never used a keg so watch scorching.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: 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.Why does the instructions for this burner say to not use it for heating oil/ grease. I would like to cook food with it as well. Any ideas?BEST ANSWER: This burner pumps out a lot of btu's. Oil would easily over heat and catch on fire. I do use mine for boiling corn and boiling crab even cooking down tomato sauce . There is a fine adjustment on burner to help adjust flame. This burner is s beast I can boil 6 gallon of wort starting at 120 degrees to boiling in 20 minutes. I'm not saying you couldn't deep fry but you may end up with a fire ball unless your really carefull.Would this work for running a 6 gallon 10 inch base copper still? I need to be able to keep temps between 175-190 or is this burner over kill?BEST ANSWER: This burner is way far overkill for 6 gallons of just about anything, but if your looking to get the temperature up fast then it would be just what the doctor ordered, you can always turn it down a bit once it gets to temp.Will the legs support a 20 gallon brew?BEST ANSWER: Yep, use it on my 20 gal Stout boil kettle all the time.I already have a cast iron banjo burner. Can the Bru Burner be purchased without the banjo burner?BEST ANSWER: No I don't think it can but your banjo can not compare to the elemental burner spend the 150 and get the whole thing it's a great setupCan 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!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.My needle valve broke. How can I order a replacement part?BEST ANSWER: Sorry to hear that your needle valve broke. Our Customer Service team can help you order that via phone 1-800-681-2739.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 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 can. This burner is rated for up to a 30 gallon kettle.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.Has anyone added wheels to the stand?Where is edelmetall made and are parts readily available?Please please please make a natural gas conversation kit for the edelmetall burner. It’s so beautiful and I want to brew in my basement. Let me know if and when you do?It worries me a bit that NB sells a replacement needle valve for this burner. Why would that be needed?
