Unless you're looking for something in the hundreds of cans/minute range, I think Cask and Wild Goose are just about your only options.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Stay away from Cask.
That would be my advice to you.

Wild Goose's lines look impressive from their videos - from the standalone models to the fully-automated systems, the core technologies that yield high quality are there (the same purge/fill mechanism is incorporated on each model, as well as the lid plate). I think the only thing missing from the stripped-down version is a rinsing system.

The fully-automated line looks like a smaller/slower version of what I've worked on at Coke/Pepsi. VERY cool stuff, but probably unnecessary unless you're the size of Oskar Blues!

The Wild Goose line is great for many breweries, but is far too small for Oskar Blues. The Wild Goose line fills between 36-40 cans a minute. Oskar Blues uses a KHS line that fills 280 12 oz cans a minute or 210 16 oz cans a minute.

You can add rinser and air brush for small amount compare to whole filler.

Yeah - assumed they sold it as an add on. My point was that its definitely worth it!

May I ask what was the deal with Cask?

They are more interested in selling you supply (cans and lids) and lots of it then listening your needs. If you need more detail PM me.

Anybody have a direct contact they would like to share for Wild Goose, they don't seem to be responding the autoform on their website.  Thanks..
