connecting black pipe to brass, either tape or dope/putty is fine
But if you use tape, get the yellow tape. It is slightly thicker and less porous and is designed for gaseous use. The white is meant for liquids... It can work, but you're working with an explosive gas so spend the $5 and get the stuff that's safe.
I prefered dope/putty as it fills gaps better. Messy, but it's gas...
