SQ14 Burner and Installing a Weldless Ball Valve on The Keggle

25 July 2010 2 Comments

Just wanted to give a quick update here on the blog about my latest ventures in home brewing.  In my last post, The New All Grain Brewing Equipment for Home Brewing, I showed you the new mash tun and keg converted to keggle.  Since that video I've also purchased a new Bayou Classic SQ14 55,000 btu burner to use along with the keggle for all grain brewing.

In this first video I'm using the new burner with the converted keg to heat up my strike water so I can get a feel for how much heat my mash tun will absorb and how much heat loss I have after an hour.  I've learned so much about All Grain Brewing since I've purchased this equipment and I'm still learning something every day seems like!  LOVE this hobby!

Also, I ordered and installed a weldless ball valve for the keggle. I ordered the ball valve kit from Bargain Fittings and I HIGHLY recommend those folks! Great products, great prices and fast shipping!

The install was very easy and it's been tested out and no leaks!  Works like a charm!  AND, I've actually done my first all grain brew outdoors using my new equipment!  I'll try and get that video up soon!

    Just ordered my SQ-14 through your link. Should have my mash tun built by the time it arrives.

    Good video(s) Jake thanks for making & posting them looking forward to more of them. I’m right where you are at. Have brewed several batches of extract recipes and am now moving to all grain. What kind of saw did you use to cut the top of the keg off?
