My tank holds 4.5 gallons of propane. I brew on a B3 1550 and use the burners to heat cleanup water to pump thru my SMART and Whirlpool systems so I use a little more propane than others.....

Here's what I found interesting...

When I brew out in the open .....(under my deck) I consistently use 2.3-2.5 gallons.

This winter I've moved some of my brewdays into the garage. (out of the wind and rain) In the garage....I'm only using 1.5 gallons on a brewday.

Wind sure does make a big difference!

Hey Clay, I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how it works out! I just entered two bottles of my last batch into a local competition, my first.

I find that in mild weather or when I'm brewing outdoors in Summer, I can get four batches, even if all four are 90 min. boils. In really cold weather, it drops to three, even though I'm in the garage.
