Someone once said that the harder you work (wait) for something the more you will appreciate it when you obtain it. A belated Merry Christmas to you. Enjoy your gift. If it is any consolation I got my first 30L unit before they went on back order @MoreBeer and got it fairly soon there after. But my second one took just shy of a year to arrive in stock and finally at my home. That must be some kinda slow boat LOL.
