I've seen a lot of complaints about Cask on the probrewer forum. People seem to prefer Wild Goose.

I also got a quote from Wild Goose. Their semi-automated machine is 2x the price of Cask's. But I do like that you can easily add automation modules. Does anyone have any personal experience with either Cask or WG?

If your brewery isn't a failure, you'll probably be really glad to have automation in short order.

I am in the process.
Cask is Balls reseller and you have to buy supply ONLY from them.
Minimum for Crowns is 8 pallets
Balls is 12 pallets.
You have to wire money....

I actually emailed back and forth with Roger from WGE last night. Going to meet up with him next week at the CBC. Definitely interested in learning more about their canning lines and other can manufacturers, particularly crown.
