I think $150 is a little high, particularly for pick up.
There's a guy in Milwaukee or Madison who had some he'd ship that came in around that price. Last time I checked was maybe a year ago.
For the price, I'm sticking with chips and plan to use some cubes or maybe a spiral as well.
Koval is walking distance from me, but they only have much larger barrels than I could use.
15 gallons is not to much to fill if you try. Double batch it with a concentrated wort and then top up.
