Before you can even taste your home-brewed beer, there are many processes involved in creating one. These processes include mashing, lautering, boiling, and fermenting. All of these processes involve the use of heat. For example, the mashing process requires heat while the malted barley is soaked in hot water. Heat is necessary to release the sugar within the barley and also activate the enzymes within the grains.

Having a reliable heat source in your brewing station is very important. A good burner provides adequate heat and allows home brewers to have good control of the heat. A slight change in the temperature of the mixture can cause a lot of problems. For instance, using extremely high heat can cause the sugar within the liquid wort to burn. Moreover, high heat may also cause some of the enzymes to denature which affects the final flavour of the beer. (more info below)
Here at Ontario Beer Kegs, we have a wide selection of burners that can fit the heating needs of your home brewing station. Getting quality burners can help you hasten the boiling process. When choosing a good burner, make sure that you opt for one that has a big enough surface area to handle your large brew kettles. Providing enough flame coverage can help home brewers boil the mixture evenly.

We carry different brands of burners at Ontario Beer Kegs. Our selections of brands include Anvil, Bayou, and Blichmann. Our burners are powered by different types of fuels that are readily available to you. You can choose from natural gas or propane burners depending on your available source. If you are always on the move but still would love to brew beer, you can always opt for a propane burner. We also have a selection of burner parts such as cast iron fry or banjo burner.

Remember, our burners and brew kettles may be used for so much more than making beer. Our pots and kettles may be used for soups, stocks, lobster pots and more.
