I use Airgas and swap. Was really hard the first time letting my nice shiny aluminum (?) tank go but I had no choice as the folks that fill here stopped doing so. I want to say I swap out a 20 for like $16.95 out the door. Food grade too.

I emailed Barron about it and he replied, I don't look for it to happen, too many issues with AFE & logistics. He did say that he's looking to add fill service to their store when they move to a bigger place. When that might be, he didn't say. When I mentioned the idea to Chris a while back, he did say that he drives past AFE every day. You might be able to get him to do the fill legwork for a couple bucks. It would be worth another $5 to me just so I didn't have to take off in the middle of the day and run over there.

Sounds good. Thanks a ton for trying to give the nudge for the Co2 service up there.

Ok, bit the bullet and went over to AFE @ lunch today. Of course my tank was out of date. They had one that was ready to go so I just paid for the exchange. $42

Anyone having issues with the grind at our local LHBS? I bought 16 lbs of grain there this past Thursday for a weizenbock. They did say that they were having trouble with the grinder but I didn't check the results at the time. When I got home I found that most of the grain wasn't crushed at all. Fortunately, I have a corona I usually grind with and I was able to fix the issue. I'm sure they'll get it sorted; the grind there is usually perfect and I get a consistent 80% efficiency with it. I just wanted to give a heads up. Check your grind!

Michael, I apologize. The mill has been temperamental during the past week, and we have a new one (a nice 3-roller mill) on order. In the meantime, I'll remind the rest of the crew to check the crush and double-mill if necessary.

I was certain you guys were on top of it! I just thought to add a suggestion that it is something to look out for in the mean time. Oh, while you're at it can you order some lighter colored bottle caps than those gaudy bright gold ones? I bought some anyway but I much prefer the silver or light gold ones you used to carry. The bright gold ones are too flash for my beer!

I'll order some pre-packaged caps next time.

Edit: We now have the bright gold as well as plain black caps out front. We have silver caps in a box in the back that we haven't started digging into yet. We also have our new mill running now.
