Default How much are you paying....

to have a 5lb bottle filled?
This is my first run at barrelling the brew and I just received my bottle. I am assuming (from my MIG experience) that it will run around $20, is this relatively close?

I'm sure he means a 5lb. CO2 tank. I had mine filled at a paintball place and it was 20bux. I think you may be able to get it as low as 10-15 if you find a welding or gas place.

I swap my bottle at a welding shop: $8 and they throw in a new washer.

I bribe one of my local breweries with homebrew, and they swap it out for Free.

11 Bucks at a local AirGas shop, and they swap out the tank too.
