I'm considering switching to nat. gas as we have it at the house but haven't thought to use it for brewing.
I've heard it's way cheaper (not sure what it would cost to get a plumber to hook up a QD). Perhaps I can do this myself.
Anyone made the switch? Any noticeable difference in getting your water up to temp?
Do it! Have a plumber install a (lockable, so curious kids don't blow your house up) shut off valve and a QD for you. Water boils just as fast and it's wonderful to not have to worry/gamble with partially full propane tanks.
Out of curiosity what type of line do you run from your valve to the burner? In my case, I think it would be at least a 10' run from the nearest possible valve to where I set my burner up.
I apologize, I don't know the technical term for the type of hose I have. But, it is ~15',flexible, 3/4", insulated, reinforced NG line for outdoor grills. Check with a high end gas grill dealer and they should be able to point you toward the right product and folks that can get the plumbing set up safely for you.
Should have said my 3/4" line supplies NG to three wok burners. I can easily run two at a time.
