You took me too seriously, I took you too seriously. My initial post was intended to be a bit of a throwaway, a silly jibe at a discussion I assumed to be over. You leaped in immediately with a rebuttal, which I read to mean that you were more invested in the discussion than I thought, and responded in kind.

Canning equipment is a much more expensive investment than bottling equipment, so I think that's seriously doubtful. There's a reason only the larger and more established brands are doing it, you have to have a certain economy of scale to make it work financially.
