Hey guys. I was just wondering if anyone kept track of how many all grain brews they get from a tank of propane. I realize it will vary depending on your setup and but I simply use a 190K BTU turkey setup. Just wondering for cost analysis for my future setup. Trying to decide if I should stick with propane, plumb into my houses natural gas or use electric. Thanks!
I bet I could easily get three. So far I've got two and then it feels really low and i fill it up to make damn sure i dont run out mid-boil. Last time I got two 120 minute boils (counting the 30 minutes or so to boil water for mash and sparge and then 90 minute boils) and had about 1/3rd left of the tank.
I would plumb into the house if i could. I know my burner really seems to use ALOT of propane.
I get 2-3 on 90 min boils. I just refilled my tank before my most recent brew and decided to keep track of the weight. Canister says tare weight is 17 lb, I started with 34 lb, and after the brew had 29 lb. So that's consistent with my results.
