Would a $30 propane burner be sufficient to boil a 10 gallon batch? My biggest cost would be a proper sized kettle. How about a pH meter? I have read about the importance of pH and mash. Luckily the water here in Bend, OR is clean and soft (which allows for adjustment I guess).
Dude, I paid 10$ at Target for my burner. Keep your eyes out, and you will score a good deal. And, when you get a turkey fryer, it comes with a 7.5 kettle, perfect for 5 gal batches, till you decide to upgrade your burner. And yes, a turkey fryer burner, typically 55k BTU, if plenty for 10 gal batches. It's how I roll. Now go brew something!!!!
