but it's cheaper than buying your own canning/bottling line.

You are correct sir. I just place PO for manual canning line. I am exited and scared at the same time. Nothing is cheap in brewing.

I look forward to getting your beer in cans.  Probably won't be up your way until the spring, but I'll definitely grab a case when I'm there.

we got quotes on automated Meheen that started at 52K for 4 head filler. That includes training at the facility (but you gotta pay to fly out there). Bottler, not canner, but there you go.
About the same but our cans will be printed and we do not need labeler.

I say look for bigger you will only be plugging a hole with a 3 bbl system.You have enough experience here that can get you into a 10 bbl (ghetto) system at that price. If you are pressed for time,money and size, Iwill help and the others will help you also.
