WAY too many variables. Outside temp, wind, size of pot, batch size, etc.

I would, however, recommend having two propane tanks. That way if you run out mid boil, you can swap and continue. It's also nice if you have a propane grill...I always seem to runout when I've invited friends over for a cook-out.

I heat about 5-8 gallons of strike water to around 168-170, then reheat another 5 gallons of sparge water to 170; then typically do a 60 minute boil on 7.45 gallons of wort. And my tank usually lasts 3 batches. But with BIAB, I would imagine that would stretch (for me) to about 5-6 batches.
