Wow, thats a lot of gas! ;D  To find a regulator, you will have to know the total flow of propane you are going to regulate at a given pressure. With this info, you could purcase one online form any of the many suppliers of gas regulators.

A cheaper and possibly more local solution would be to find an RV parts supplier near you. Perhaps one of the large dual regulators they sell will have the capacity to supply your brew rack.

Good luck

In Fall and Winter, we burn wood in the fireplace and brew beer.
In Spring & Summer, we're on the water or walking the beach!
 Then back at the dock we create a reason to brew!

I would at least use two tanks for the process. If you pull too much gas out of your tank at once it will freeze up. I would also use three high pressure regs (Red with green connectors, the black ones are made for low pressure applications,) with needle valves for control of the flames. If you can determine which burners you are going to be using less gas at the same time (So the tank does not freeze up and you lose pressure) you can use a tee right out of that lp tank to go to two regs. This would give you the greatest control over your each individual burners. RV regualtors only work at 1/2" PSI, 11"wc.
