Default Kansas City Beer gas?

Any tips for a Beer Gas connection in Kansas City? New to the area and wanting to fill my Nitro bottle (25-75). Don't have any connections yet. Any good tips are welcome!

Sorry I don't have the answer for you. I just started kegging and haven't gotten into the whole nitrogen thing yet. I do live in the KC area (northland near Liberty Missouri). I am not even sure if you get nitrogen from an LHBS or a welding supply shop?? There is Linweld off of front street (that handles welding supplies). Also Clark's tools handles welding gases. The only LHBS I can find around here are EC Kraus in independance... they suck and prices are high. There is Bacchus and Barleycorn in shawnee kansas (the store I frequent most often). There is also Homebrew pro shoppe in Olathe (very nice people, just farther from my home). St joe Missouri has one also but I have never been there.

If you can't find nitro through this forum I am sure that one of these stores could help out. We also have a homebrewers club in town so hope to see you around, or maybe share a brew.

I can't believe there is only two people from the Kansas city area here... :-)

How about regular co2? Any tips for getting those bottles filled and/or tested?

Linweld (or Matheson) Gas
6000 E Front St, Kansas City, MO

This is where I go. I live in the Leavenworth, KS area and it is quite a drive, but it is one of the only places I know that will fill the tank you bring them while you wait. Around $9.00 for a 5 lb tank.

Have any local bars near you? You could probably just ask a manager where they get there tanks filled.

I actually live within 10 miles of front street. I had called them and asked, they mentioned several times that they wouldn't fill a bottle out of date but never mentioned what it would cost to swap bottles or to have a bottle tested.

I never thought of that. I just assumed that a truck would deliver/swap out their bottles vs. sending an employee with the tanks to be swapped.

Even if they get tanks delivered its probably from a local place.
