Default Canning beer at home

I know that commercial canning lines are damned expensive and require a minimum run far larger than a home brewer often does. However, I noticed this video for a brew shop in Australia:


Does anyone have any idea what machine that is that they are using to can beers one at a time?

Yeah the same company that made it cost effective for microbrewers to can their beer, by reducing the minimum size of the can runs, ALSO supplies the canning equiptment, both to microbreweries AND to Brew on Premises.

Just sent out an e-mail to try to get a quote on the manual canning system. If anyone is interested, I will post the price on here after I get it.

Yeah, its pretty frickin awesome! IMHO, canning is a better way to go than bottles, at least on a commercial scale.

Based on this thread I found on a forum it's way pricey

Quote:
We are currently exploring the idea of a canning line. We could buy a filler and seamer system that matches the speed of our bottling line (200 bpm) for about $300,000+ but we thought we'd much rather test the market for our beer in cans. I have found Cask Brewing Systems offers a nice 30 cpm system for about $50,000. Does anyone have any experience with them or any other suggestions. Ideal speed would be about 80-100 cpm and cost about $100,000-$150,000. We don't like to buy used equipment. I'm willing to accept any thoughts or suggestions. Also if anyone knows how much cans cost for smaller orders (~20,000 cases at a time) please let me know. Thanks.

P.S.... Since I've found this website it seems like I'm posting way more than anyone else. Am I abusing the system?
