but most people seem to end up with Ball's two-head filler.

Don't you mean Cask?

Economically, a semi-automated canning setup is actually less expensive than bottling, in both capital and per-unit costs. The two Ball units, gently used, sell for about half a minivan.

The only issue with canning is the amount of cans you have to buy.

Yes! Thanks.

The only issue with canning is the amount of cans you have to buy.

Only if you want them printed. You can get blank cans in basically any quantity, just like bottles.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Curiosity solved. Thanks!
Found another reason to stay the course of cornys and occasionally a few bottles

Very cool, Leos! Did WGE do the on-site setup/training?

Movin' on up Leos!  Very nice can design. :)

So...How many mini-vans away from being able to buy your beer in Delaware? ;)

Congrats!
Ron,
You have to take a road trip to get my beer. I am not planning on shipping out of state. I think I can do quite well within the state. New Glarus is the example.

The next time I travel your way, I will definitely stop in for a tour, and some of your great beer. :)
