    Glycol recommendation
    by AGB
    I had a glycol leak yesterday. I need to buy about 10-gallons. I am going to Country Malt tomorrow to pick up grain and I see they have two types on their site. One says food grade for $140/5gal and the other says it is for glycol-cooled heat exchangers for about $108/5gal. I need it for my BBTs...

    Nitrogen for purging
    by frenchc
    I rented an N2 generator thinking I could use it for purging/transfers, purging cans. Then tested the DO on it and it's like 400-500ppb. Curious if that's what others are seeing.

    Sourcing bulk CO2 tanks
    by GinoG
    Hey Gang,
    After having dealt with a problematic non responsive CO2 supplier for years, we’d like to purchase our own bulk CO2 tanks and kick them to the curb. We’re searching for 2x 750lb tanks or perhaps a larger single Tank. Web searches tend to only return hits for small 5-50lb...
