loadtoad00,
Any updates on the CO2? I'm about to keg 2 batches and my 5lb bottle that I brought from the States doesn't have much left in it.

Thanks,

see if you can find an adapter so that i can throw co2 into your tank from my tank...
that way i can fill up my tank... and then fill up your tank with my tank... since mine is bigger... of course it wont really fill up your tank completely it will just give you enough co2 to make it for awhile...

Update to Tank Refils fellas. Sorry for the delay, actually was opening my latest shipment from midwest when I got the email Anyways, one of my buddies with a sankey kegerator went to Okano Gas Co with his 5# bottle, which was brand new, and had the American Inspection Stickers. They filled his tank he said for 3000 yen. No adapters, or Japanese Insp required. This may be a case by case deal, depending on whether or not your tank is good with American inspections. Worse case, you go there to get your tank filled, and get turned away, but while you are there you can pick up the adapter to use Japanese Rental tanks with your reg.

I'm looking forward to getting to Oki and meeting some fellow brewers. I will be there in mid April; however, I'm currently running into the problem of our weight restriction. I have a 3 tap kegerator, 3 15 1/2 gallon keggles, keggle stand, burner, 4 carboys, 7 corney kegs, and 5 CO2 tanks. Obviously I won't be bringing all (or any) of the CO2 tanks and probably not more than 4 of the corneys but I was wondering, based on what's available there, do you see anywhere that I could trim the wieght? Wonder how expensive it you be to mail some of it (or other things) so that I can make weight.

Any problem getting 10 gallon all grain ingredents mailed out there?

Keg 1: Sculpin IPA
Keg 2: Old Gaurdian Barley wine
Keg 3: Hazelnut Brown
Keg 4: Gingerbread Red
Keg 5: Old Gaurdian Barley wine

Primary: Ruby Red Grapefruit / Strawberry Melomel

Did TMO already weight your house hold goods? Did they say it was too much? I would say do not part with any brewing stuff; part with the crap you don't need. I still have boxes from my PCS from England that have not been unpacked. Basically crap that could have been tossed or donated.

I recently went through the PCS nightmare. I brought a 3 keg keezer (5.0cuft Holiday), 2 Sanke kegs, 5 corney kegs, 3 carboys, 10gal mash tun, burner, 2 brew pots, all the misc extra equipment and 5 extract/ all grain kits. The 5# CO2 bottle was an issue but I put in the keezer where it wouldn't be seen and it arrived no problem. We didn't bring much furniture and were still over by a couple hundred pounds. TMO hasn't said anything and I ain't asking. What will kill you is when you get here and learn that the Air Force is allowed full house hold goods move to and from the island.

I regularly order supplies from More Beer and get them in a week to 10 days with no customs issues. Yeast is the only problem. I have been ordering dry yeast to avoid any liquid yeast issues.

Good luck in the move and if you need anything just ask.
