I know this is a very old thread, but Robert asked a question that I am trying to find the answer to.
"roughly how much propane is used per hour of roasting?"
Say I'm roasting 3 batches an hour, what is the weight of propane used on average.
I'm just looking for a ball park figure to do some initial costings. If anyone can give me any idea that would be great.

depends on how much you are trying to roast and also the different roaster would require different propane output.... Some of the roaster use different heating system.....
Ah, I thought I said, the roaster is an L5 Probat.
I'm trying to work out the cost of running the machine, so the hourly propane usage based on 3 batches of 11kg per hour would be perfect.
The hourly usage might not be a figure people have to hand, so if anyone roasts on an L5 and can give me the typical propane usage in a week, that would be really useful to me.
Any help appreciated...
