Running 2 in a two tier system works great. Could have gotten away with one but on sale convenience is a plus.

A good burner at a great price!
The Dark Star 2.0 is a good entry level, work horse of a burner. Turned up to high, it will bring your wort to a boil quickly. Dial it down and it will boil at a consistent temperature. I have even used this for deep frying turkeys at Thanksgiving. If there is one misgiving with it, I would prefer a longer a gas hose.

Dark Star burner
I like it. My old burner had a 12 min timer on it so I was constantly having to reset it. I could never get my old burner to burn a blue flame and it made the cook pot black and nasty. This burner works great. Burns a blue flame and doesn't mess up the cook pot. I've used it once so far on a windy day and it held its own. I think the heating time was shorter than the old burner and it was pretty easy to adjust the regulator to maintain a boil without boiling over.

Awesome. Cuts brew time by maybe half
This thing is awesome. Seems like it took 2 minutes to get a boil with this where before on my stove it took half an hour with the lid on. Also can brew in the garage where my wife cant complain about the smell. Just make sure you cut the flame when adding hops and stuff or it will boil over. I never had that happen on the stove so you need to watch that as this puts out serious heat. I learned the hard way.

will work with 15 gal. keg?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This thing works great for me, 10 gallon comes up to temp easy, easily maintained nice and easy boil (high simmer) Louisiana talk, lol. I bet this monst would fire 20+ gallon pots .
How do you get water/wort onto/off the burner? The instructions say, "Never lift or move a full kettle of water onto or off of the Dark
Star® 2.0 Burner" I suppose this is safety related. The instructions don't appear to say what to do, just what not to do.
A shopper on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The kettle is never "full" - always room for potential boilovers. I use a 7-8 gallon kettle and it usually has at least a couple of gallons of space unfilled. If it was a full to the brim kettle of boiling water/wort then it would be tricky to safely move it without spilling.
How much propane is required for a typical 2 1/2 gal, 60 minute boil? I don't want to keep the big propane bottles around if I don't need to. Can I use a 1 lb bottle a complete a boil?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A 1lb bottle will probably work for your situation. A 20lb bottle will last me at least 5 brews. That's heating water up for mashing and 60 minute boils. I say give it a whirl, if it takes one bottle it takes one bottle, if it takes two it takes two.
Can you buy leg extensions for this burner?
Richard S on Nov 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, no, we don't have a leg-extension set or kit for this burner. It could be used on a sturdy platform of some kind to raise it, if done safely and carefully.
Could this be used in a basement where I currently brew? Or does it have to be used outside?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't... using this inside would likely cause suffocation (from carbon monoxide)... plus the amount of heat it produces + fire hazard...
if i have a 1/2 barrel keg that i brew in, will this support that?
E M on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will! This can hold a kettle of up to 15 gallons in size, a 1/2 barrel keg would fit that description. - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
Will this burner work with natural gas? We have a natural gas line outside that our grill connects to - is it possible to connect this burner? Is there any additional equipment needed?
M R on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These burners are not meant to be used for natural gas and we do not provide any adapters to convert them to natural gas.
I'm seriously considering a burner to help speed up brew day boils but not sure if I want a gas burner or an electric burner...anyone have thoughts on this subject?
P R on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Priscilla,

Thank you for contacting us. The debate of propane vs natural gas vs electric can a lengthy topic of discussion. The points to consider usually come down initial investment, operating costs, and availability of power source of your choice.

A propane system usually has the lowest initial investment cost, but can cost a small amount more to run over an electric system. A natural gas system has a slightly larger initial investment that often includes taping into your homes natural gas supply, and operating cost can vary based upon the current rate from your local utility company. Electric brewing systems typically has the lowest operating cost, but have the highest initial investment. Most require dedicated 240v outlets in addition to the heating elements, control units, and any other provision needed to run the system. Below are a few links to a few forums that go a bit more in depth on the attributes of each scenario.
