How much propane? by Alex S
If I am firing stoneware in a propane kiln of 8 cubic feet (something I am thinking about) does anyone have a ball park idea of how much propane might be required per firing? Sort of related to this, and apologies for going over old ground, I am interested in the idea of the "greenest" approach...
