Lol, ask a very specific question about nat gas vs propane, and you get folks talking you into electric.

I cant speak to efficiency differences, but I would think nat gas is the way to go. You won't have to deal with the PITA and expense of propane tanks.

Yea and someone post a cut and past page about NG vs Propane cost break down!! I was asking hoping to get experience with burner efficiency and heating up 10-20 gallons of wort and which was better.

Lugging those tanks back and forth suck with the BBQ grill and when the grill dies I will get a NG one. But since I am getting new gear to dive into all grain I was looking at all options. Another question I have is how many brew days do you get with a typical tank of propane??

I use natural gas. It's more convenient and cheaper than propane. Although, I've been giving some serious thought to going electric. If nothing else just to eliminate the need for ventilation. I brew in the basement and in the winter it works out great. In the summer, not so much.
