Cold weather in the US mid-south west this winter has created a high propane demand and supply shortage.

But don't worry, it will go back down a few cents once the shortage is over... I mean, right before it goes up again for the summer BBQ season. Next fall there will be a fear of a winter shortage again so they will naturally have to raise prices then too.

Yeah.  Costco.  I can't even imagine what a swap at Irving would cost.  $60?

My only problem with electric brewing is the space.

One approach would be to start the conversation with "dear I think you need more storage space for... " - of course she'll see through it but there's still the alure of getting something substantial out of it...

A garage is on the (distant) horizon.  I'll just need to get water and power down there.  But, I like the way you think.
