    CO2

    I picked up a pair of 20# steel tanks today from Airgas. The cost of purchasing a tank from Matheson would have been about the same, but Matheson refills would be about 50% more expensive than Airgas, where I'm located. Instead of purchasing, I'm leasing the tanks for $30 each per year. Purchase...

    Kegco Mill?

    No, I wouldn't spend $300 to get the same mill without the blue film on it, and I understand why they machine the aluminum with the blue film on it, but this this isn't a complicated piece of machinery to assembly, yet that blue plastic added roughly 2 hours to the process, unless I had just...

    Kegco Mill?

    Now that I have the parts cleaned up, I imagine that I will be very happy with it in the end, but what a PITA it was removing the blue film and adhesive. The blue film on mine looked just like that in previous photos, but maybe mine sat in a scorching hot warehouse for weeks? I don't know. I...

    Kegco Mill?

    I got mine today. I ordered it from Beverage Factory. As far as I can tell, the components haven't changed from when you got yours. What was radically different from your description, was that the blue protective film was a royal PITA to remove from the aluminum, it left lots of sticky adhesive...

    Anvil foundry vs Robobrew?

    I'll second Short Circuited Brewers as fairly comparing the pros and cons of different models. Another that I would recommend are these guys Genus Brewing who have reviewed both, and can be entertaining to watch at times. I chose to go with the 6.5 gallon Anvil Foundry, but from all of my...

    CO2

    I looked at refurbished tanks online as well. Some were as cheap as $59, not including shipping, although that would probably end up being more than the $89 you paid. I didn't check out eBay yet. The guy at Maine Oxy said that the tanks needed to be DOT certified and have stickers showing what...

    CO2

    I was planning on calling Airgas this morning, and just did. Their prices were a bit more reasonable than Maine Oxy. For 20# tanks, you can lease a tank for $30 per year or purchase for around $150. Either way, they do a tank swap when you need a refill, which is about $22. A 5# tank can be...

    CO2

    I called a local welding supply place (Maine Oxy) today to ask about the price of 20# CO2 tanks and the refill cost. I was told $89+/- for the cylinder and $22+/- for the CO2 and refills. So I drove there to pick up two 20# tanks. When the guy at the counter said that it would be $400+, I said...

    Dual RoboBrew HERMS idea. Feedback welcomed!

    Thanks for sharing the diagram. I haven't homebrewed in 30 years, but I'm thinking about getting back into it. I've looked at most of the all grain all-in-one systems and user reviews for them. Some people seem to have great success with them, while other people seem to have problems with overly...
