Has anyone heard of or used dual boilers to accomplish heating both kettle and hot liquor tank? I have the option of buying 2, 550,000 btu boilers, with a net output of 330,000 btu each, for a total of 660,000 btu. I have never seen this done before but it seems like a perfectly sound idea.

I would appreciate any feed back on the pro's and con's of this type of set up. The kettle I am buying requires 509,500 btu/hr to boil 20 bbl of wort with a 7% evaporation rate.

thanks again,
Scott
