I've begun thinking about finally putting together a brew rig on a similar platform to the brutus 10 without automization. I was planning on using propane, but would like to know the ups and downs in comparison to natural gas, herms and rims.

Well, if you have access to a natural gas line, it helps a bunch since you can brew all day long and not have to haul the tank back to get it refilled. Instead, you just see your normal monthly gas bill. That is assuming you already have natural gas service already in your home.
