Default Blichmann Boilermaker cosmetic defect

Anyone know where to get a boilermaker with a cosmetic defect, I'm looking for a 15 gallon and would love to save a few bucks if I can find one

If I am not mistaken, any retailer that sells Blichmann stuff can order them if they are available. I would call Northern Brewer and see what they say.

Comments like that are the brewing equivalent of me saying "I'm buying a Jeep" and you chiming in with "Why not get a Prius? It has better MPG."

One of our local home brew stores has been trying to get rid of one for a few weeks. I cannot remember if it was a 10 gallon or a 15 gallon. Here is their website.

You will have to call and ask. However, I don't think the discount was all that significant - maybe $20 or $30 at the most.

I Got 3 15 gal cosmetic defects, called s1, from rebel Brewer, they are 10% off retail and I couldn't even find a single scratch on them. Great deal if I ever buy bigger Boilermakers I would buy blemished again

327.99 Those things are built like a tank too, so I'm not worried about any scratch is may have on it.
