Here are the remaining parts I used for the propane connections and what each connects to:
- 1 piece - Bayou Classic High Pressure LPG, 30-PSI Adjustable Regulator, 48" Braided Hose, 3/8" Flare Swivel Fitting
- Hose and regulator that connects the propane tank to the brew stand
- 1 piece - 3/8" x 1/2" Brass/Gas Ball Valve: Flare x Female Thread Connection
- Regulator hose connects to this, screwed onto black nipple pipe
- 1 piece - 1/2" x 12" black pipe nipple
- Connects to tee
- 1 piece - 1/2" x 1/2" x 3/8" Black Reducing Tee
- 1 piece - 1/2" x 4" black pipe nipple
- Connects to 90-degree elbow
- 1 piece - 1/2" x 3/8" Black 90-degree Reducing Elbow
- Connects to one 3/8" Close Black Pipe Nipple and 3/8" Ball Valve
- 2 pieces - Mr. Heater 5-ft Propane Hose Assembly, 3/8" Male Pipe Thread x 3/8" Female Flare Thread
- Connect each to 3/8" ball valve
- 2 pieces - 3/8" Brass/Gas Ball Valve: Female Thread x Female Thread Connection
- 2 pieces - 3/8" Close Black Pipe Nipple
- Yellow gas tape
Finding the right propane hoses was the hardest part. The Banjo burners each come with a brass orifice that screws into the air shutter plate. This orifice requires a 3/8" female flare connection from the propane hose. However, most of the hoses I could actually find in stores were for a female pipe connection - not a tight seal. After going through a slew of adapters with minor propane leaks - and learning the difference between multiple connections - I opted to just return everything and buy the hoses from Amazon. Received them quickly, hooked them up, checked for leaks, and once I confirmed that I wasn't about to touch-off an explosion, fired the stand up. FLAME ON!
Everything worked like a charm.
Depending on how often I brew out in the open - as opposed to the garage with the door open - I may attach wind guards around each burned to help prevent the flame from being blown out and to help focus the heat on the kettle.
I will probably cover the top center of the stand with some sheet metal to act as a table top for utensils.
