Is a high-output burner required for brewing?
High-output burners are not an absolute requirement when it comes to homebrewing, although it is highly recommended. The reasoning is that doing full boil all-grain batches, you are boiling off a higher volume than you would an extract beer on your kitchen stove. On a stovetop, brewing can be a lengthy process with waiting for your strike water to reach optimal temperature, and again waiting for the wort run off to reach a boil. A high-output burner will allow you to bring that wort to a full boil in only a fraction of the time. Burners also ensure you get a good, vigorous, rolling boil.
Can I use a high-output burner indoors?
Absolutely not. A definite no. We never recommend using any type of burner indoors. Always use a high-output burner in an open and very well ventilated area.
