Tetenal decided to stop shipping this to us, despite the fact that it sold well. I don't know why. </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
Notice he said they stopped shipping it to them. Now to me that means it might still be available. It might mean a trip to Europe or at least a European website. With the shipping restrictions now in place wouldn't suprise me if alot of stuff stops being sold.
I know you said a nitrogen tank costs alot but was that just the gas or was that including the tank cost? If it includes the tank then that's a one time cost and you need to check the refill cost. I've got a CO2 tank for draft and the tank cost me something like $100 years ago. The refill is maybe $20 and it's a big tank that goes years between fills. Some bars use nitrogen for pumping wine [or they did] and others use a nitrogen tank for Guiness. I'm guessing beverage grade would be good enough?
I'm suprised he mentioned the torch idea. You know some genius is going to check his fill level with a match.
It's still on this website:
