This video would be a good example of what your canning day might look like minus the wonderful automated canning line that this brewer got to use.

I think they were listed at $699.

Wish I could have been there, but it's hard to justify when it's that trip or a pallet of kegs. :-\

They had another one that was $450 shipped with a bunch of cans.  I am pretty sure I remember that correctly.

Here's the price list from the show:  http://imgur.com/a/zRs8H

I picked up the same canner as Drew (the $699 model). 

Give Joel Andrew a call or email if you want to know more.

Might be a good club buy.
