BD,

Don't forget about the guys at Lonsdale, (All Pressure Testing). It might be a bit quicker for you.

I've used them too and they are great. It depends on the day as to what is quicker

I use both All Pressure Testing and Ceasefire. Both $10 cash per kg. Would recommend both, but tend to go to Ceasefire more purely because its closer for me.

Do Ceasefire still get you to drop your bottle off and come back a few days later to pick it up? I ended up going to Brewcraft for convenience when I was brewing.
I have nothing interesting to add here.

Depends a bit on how busy they are and whether yours is the only cylinder to fill or not.  I usually ring first to see if Ken is in or out in the field and he suggests a good time to come in.  I live about 5 mins away so it works well for me.

Yeah, ring ahead and they fill on the spot. Ken or his off-sider (Steve I think?) does it.

TBQH, BB are very reasonable and fill on the spot, only if they're super busy will you have to wait.

Tried that. They said my third party bottle had weird fittings and they couldn't fill it. I mentioned this to my regular guy and he didn't know what they were on about...
