Brewing With Propane and Burner
 
Depending on tank size of course, but for a typical tank of propane, how many batches can you usually make before you have to refill your tank?

WildGingerBrewing 11-10-2010 05:06 PM

I'm just guessing, but I'm pretty sure I got about 15 batches before I ran out in my tank.

I usually get 4-4.5 60 minute boils with my KAB 5 on a #20 tank.

I usually only get about 5 or 6 all grain batches.

About the same for me.

Although I start with hot water out of my hot water tank.

5 & 10 psi burners

I get like 4 batches, depends if its 60 or 90min boils.. so I'd say 4 on average. For your normal 20# exchange tank at the gas station.

All you guys saying between 4 and 6 batches made me go back and count brews. I have brewed fourteen 5 gal batches this year with my propane burner. I have used one and half 20# tanks. I have done 60 min and 90 min boils. I wonder why I'm getting twice as many brews out of my tank than everyone else????

I'm getting about 6-7 brews out of my tank and that includes heating mash and sparge water and boiling.

Grain uses more water than extract. Which one are you?

Elevation how high are you? Im at +250'

burner PSI

WildGingerBrewing 11-10-2010 06:09 PM

I do all grain. I'm not high, I quit doing drugs years ago :D I'm in Dallas, no clue what the elevation is. And I don't know the btu's. It's a fish/turkey fryer from Bass Pro Shops.
