Got my keg setup from Midwest today
Closest place to fill the co2 is 75 miles 1 way.
The Local Ace has 50# co2 for $35
Must purchase the $205 Bottle with it

I just wasn't meant to keg this week.

That's it. They are like a broker for the LinWeld gas company.
How long would a 50#'er last? measured in kegs....?

There are many factors that will determine this, but I have a 10#er that I got filled in November that is just now fading out on me. I'd say it gave me about 8 - 10 kegs worth of life.

I have about 12 kegs on my 20#er, and its still going strong. I paid $108.00 for my brand new 20#, and I think that a 50# would rock, a good price too.
