Oh, wow! The irony... Of course, I saw the banner article on the AHA website. I haven't made any investment yet, but rest assured that any transaction will be above board. I'm in San Diego, so there are a number of local breweries; I just don't know about their policies on reselling their tired/old kegs. Thanks for the reminder, though.
Once purchased -- back to the original question: how does the keg fermenter compare???
