    There's a reason the owner of this shop is going to go out of business - and it's not because of kk/kl, it's because he's a moron.

    Unless he wants to just sell $5 bags of grain all the time, he needs new things to sell to established brewers. kk/kl make new things. If the dude takes his blinders off, he'd realise it's a good thing

    Woe is me he can't make a 400% markup on something anymore, now that the same thing is readily available on the internet for $400 instead of $1600. cry me a fucking river.

    I would go for the KegLand kegerator, it has the tick of approval, it may be the Australian Communications tick of approval, but hey, maybe you get a free phone or something.:)

    Well that's no good to me. I don't have 110V power in my house.

    In regards to your LHBS not filling your bottle. I get mine done at a fire services shop. It only costs $10 per kg.......cheap.

    Well, they are overcharging. I get mine done at my preferred LHBS (not the closest one either) for less than that

    Well it is less than half that of the cheapest price I have found at any brew shop. My closest brew shop wanted $130 for a change over! So I am pretty happy paying $10 per kg.

    Perhaps this is why people are abandoning the LHBS when they're getting ripped like this..

    My local charges $75 for 6kg, $60 is a bargain, as for the moron trying to charge $130 for a change over, he'll be one of the many bankrupt fuckwits that will blame Kegland for his demise.

    I get my 6kg filled by local fire extinguisher mob. They charge me a dozen cans of megaswill.

    It almost kills me to buy VB... But it's worth it for a cheap refill.
