Payed $40 (after tax) to get them all filled last time or roughly $13 a pop.

They will also fill most any tank size so you can go with a #40 if you happen to brew often.

If your work uses propane see if you can get your tanks refilled under their account. I love volume discount.

Anticipating the moment when swmbo discovers that I just spent $90 on two beer kits at Austin Homebrew Supply...

"But honey...
Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale
54 beers in a 5-gallon kit = $44.46
54 beers in 4-packs at Total Wine ($9.99) + tax and crv = $151.38
Savings = $106.92
and
Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen
54 beers in a 5-gallon kit = $45.96
54 beers in 6-packs at Total Wine ($9.99) + tax and crv = $102.82
Savings = $56.86
so
Total savings for both kits = $163.78 or 64%!"

Good one! That's pretty much what I did back in December 2010.

It also seems like the heavier the box, the more trouble I'm in. Fortunately she loves both beers.

If I buy three cases of swing top bottled pumpkin cider, I get the cider for free...
