The wiesbaden FD is no good. They apparently only fill chemicals there. The linde gas place in kostheim will rent bottles for .30 cents a day and a fill is 67 euro...that's for a 10kg bottle. Madness. I'm starting to think ill just bottle beers again for the next couple years. Such a pain in the ass here for something that is so easy in the states.

I'm not sure on the price to fill a 3kg bottle (thats what i have), but i paid 160.00 Euro for the bottle (filled) and a new regulator. I'm headed off to Italy next so i figured it would be worth the cost since I'll be in Europe until late 2017. In Kaiserslautern there is a bar supply company called Walter Busch & Söhne. They have a website, but its useless. I went down there and they ordered one for me. As for refilling the bottle, I know you can fill it at Drumm. Its a welding supply shop in K-town, and they will fill small CO2 bottles. The bottles have to be EU bottles as they cant fill the USA ones.

On a side note, I'll be headed to the US next week and I plan on bringing back a bunch of hops and yeast. On my way back from Frankfurt I'm going to try and stop and pick up some grains from the Best Malz in Wallertheim. I Plan on brewing next weekend (16th or 17th) if anyone in the area is interested.

For the grains, make sure you call the Heidelberg office ahead so they can prepare an invoice and schedule your pick up in Wallertheim. They were really helpful there though.

The local brewery here is gonna help with the gas I think, they are basically going to float me a free 10kg bottle (with a pfand) and just have me pay for the gas, 35 euro a fill. I brought my regulator over there and it seems like it will work with a different nut, in going to try and fin a place that sells the nuts tomorrow and finish it all, seems like that is the best answer. I was having a bad (American stuck in Germany trying to get stuff done) day yesterday and needed to vent a little. Not sure why I never thought to turn to a local small pro brewer for help...

Also, I don't mind making pickups for you guys if its hard for you to get to Wallertheim during the weeks. You can work out the invoice, I'll go pick it up and float the cash/store the grain until you can get up here to get it, or I head that way... Open offer for any of y'all.
