They're really new on the market. I've been in contests where they've been among the prizes, they're a Michigan based company. But they're just at the stage where folks are just getting their hands on them.

Where did you get this one? It looks awesome. What do you use for CO2?

I scored one off of ebay, and then two more from a local guy (he had four, the other two went to another HBT member). I use my Leland regulator and paintball CO2 bottle with it. I've also got one connected to a manifold in the basement, carbonating up (it's cool enough down there to do it up without much pressure).

Only thing you need to do is add the gas fitting on the lid. Simply remove the threaded fitting that it comes with, install a 1/8 NPT to 1/4" MFL fitting, then the corny post adapter and then post and poppet. Done.

2 liter soda pop bottles work too, they just don't filter out UV so you have to protect them from light. Super easy.
