Utility usage for packaging micros
Trying to come to grips with electricity and gas usage. Anyone care to share their usage rates with me as a comparison? PM if you like. Mine are as follows:
Electricity is about 3.0-3.5 kWhr/gal beer
Propane use is about 0.03 gal propane/gal beer
Our cast wort volume is a bit less than 10bbl. We have propane-fired kettle only. I suspect that our heating value on propane is low. Using a cereal cooker and double-mash. We are located where its HOT almost always. Thanks for your help!
