Low Pro Bayou Classic Modification

http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/brew ... stand.html

Anyone have issues with this burner. I find with my keggle it is SLOOOOOOOW to boil and is deeply affected by breeze. Has anyone moved the burner closer or modified their setup?

hows the flame, nice and blue? or is it yellow. are the flames just dancing off the burner a little ? might just need adjusted.

I go it dialed in nice and blue… But as soon as a breeze hits it it dances. If its in the garage im okay. It CHEWS through LP…

i don’t have that burner but what i did is build a shield around my stand so the wind doesn’t affect it

Yep, you guessed it. On a keggle setup, you have to move the burner up. I did and it works much, much, much better.

Any tips on how ya did it?

You can also just go down to the hardware store and buy a roll of tin flashing and make a wind guard.

Thasts funny cuz that was my other thought… looks bad ass!

I have two of these burners plumbed into my system, I brew inside of my garage since the wind affects them so much.

I have the KAB-6, but I think it’s the same body, just with wider arms for holding keggles. What I did was to remove the bolts holding the burner in place, flip the stand over, place two 12"-long steel strips on top (under the arms), and then put the burner on top of those, which put it just under the arms. The keggle skirt is now about an inch or two from the burner, making it possible to keep a rolling boil with a medium-low flame. When it’s windy, I use a couple of boards for a windscreen.

I cut the welds, slid the wind shield up as high as I could and re-welded.

Shadetree… Could you email me a photo at your convenience? I sure would appreciate it!
