Default About how many batches per standard propane tank?

That's AG batchs, so heating strike water, sparge water, etc.

I know this is highly variable, but I just need a general idea.

I've had a natural gas grill for the last 4 years, so I've gotten rusty at estimating how full the propae bottle is by lifting it.

Four or five. I purchased an extra tank to avoid hassles. When one runs out, hookup the fresh tank AND stick the empty in the van.
