See this thread for factory dropship pricing in volume. Comes in increments of 1000' roll.
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/grou...r-line-257625/

For small quantities some of the online vendors have started to carry it, 100' increments. To pay for costs and add a fair profit margin they seem to add about $10. Much easier to deal with and you're not stuck with a giant roll. Birdman brewing is one, some of the others have said they'd carry it too.

Yep. I got 250' of the stuff and I think I was the only Canadian in the group buy (out of over 50 people).

Birdman decided to pick some up after seeing the huge popularity of the group buy, but he sold out a few days ago. But apparently I sparked some interest with a few HBT members the day afterwards (someone had obvious transferring of a disgusting off-flavor from a previous batch), and apparently they then showed enough interest for Birdman to commit to another order of the stuff...

He should be getting it in about a week, but depending on how much he bought, I wouldn't be surprised if he sells out entirely from pre-orders. So I'd act quick if you're interested

I bought 150 feet and I am a Canadian. But I had my drop shipped to a friend of mine in Washington and picked it there. Now I can get started on my Keezer

Further update on the Tygon Silver: Disconnected beer lines a month ago, and unplugged keezer (went on vacation... didn't want drunk neighbor pilfering beer). Keezer plugged back in a cold a week later, and I just hooked the lines back up.

Beer sat in the disconnected, warm line for 3-4 weeks, and still tasted perfect when I drew off a pint just now.

I just installed the bev-seal ultra. I picked up 50 ft from Farmhousebrewingsupply.com for 16 bucks (real cheap!) and so far it is working well, but I will run it through it's paces in my outdoors tower kegerator. The lines I pulled out were almost black from staining and grossness.

I just wanted to say that those people who are having trouble with getting this tubing to fit on 1/4 inch barbs must not be using a heat gun. I was able to stretch (melt) 3/16" it over my 1/4 barbs in a couple of minutes, but I see that if you didn't have a heat gun it wouldn't happen at all.

And how would you say the resistance is compared to your old lines? ie what PSI and length do you find works for you?

I run 20 feet per line. This has given great pours from 12-15 psi so far.

I have a dorm fridge with a warm tower, with taps about 1.5 ft above my kegs. Each line is 12.5 ft and I serve at 12 or so psi with great results, quick pour and no foaming issues. Again it is with 3/16 size tubing which I think helps. If It was 1/4 I'd need a much longer line at those pressures.

*edit* The resistence is about the same as my old lines, both the same ID. It is weird change though is that since these lines are ridged you can feel a "knock" as you close the faucet.
