If your space isn't equipped with gas yet, then electric is certainly going to be cheaper to set up - adding extra electric capacity and a raised electric bill will almost always cost less than the licensing and permitting, inspections for ventilation/etc., licensed installation of the gas plumbing and connectors, plus a semi-regular delivery of gas! Not to mention that propane tanks - even big 'uns - can run out at inconvenient times! And for semi-commercial open-burner operations, many states and municipalities don't allow a live-feed natural gas line and require the use of storage tanks (expensive to buy and license/install) that are still subject to running empty. Get yourself a good generator and even the worst of Nor'easters can't stop an all-electric brewery!!!
