I will take without thinking for $400.
What do you think?
Is this up to date?

I wanted to offer this to you guys before I go anywhere else.  I've got a rarely used 22 gallon SS Brewhemoth conical fermenter for sale.   First $500 will take it off my hands.
Thanks everyone. I did let it go, and it came out great! I was hoping to see everyone at the jamboree, but we have a guest coming from France for a week. Bummer!

There are plenty of places around here that charge $20-$25. I called a fire extinguisher place a few years ago and they wanted $35.

I assumed as much.  This is CT. Everything costs much more than it should. Businesses need to cover all the taxes, regulations, real estate, labor, and all the other BS that comes with being in this commie state.

Not to make you feel bad, but with tax, I pay a little over $10 for a 20# swap. I have to drive an extra 5 miles or so, but this welding shop hasn't raised their price in years. Every time I go, I expect to pay more. 
Oh, and the only extra fee is sales tax. I hate addon fees. AirGas is really bad about that. and i refuse to give them any business.
Brewing and Beer Related Stuff / CT CO2 Swap

Looks like most people here use Maine Oxy, so I did that.
They were easy to deal with. They didn't even look at my tanks (which I told them were over 10 years old).  With a hazmat fee and taxes it was $37.78 to swap out a 20# CO2 tank.

I called aero all gas and without taxes and likely fees, it was $43.95 for the swap and recert.

If you need some beer right now, you could force carb a little of it, drink right away and let the rest naturally carb.  I doubt that you'd taste the small amount of sugar you used, but not ever having done this, I could be wrong. One sip would tell.  :-P
Yeah, I'd just let it go.  After it's done naturally carbing, then put it on CO2. 
If you've already added the sugar I would just let the keg sit at room temp for the standard 1-2 weeks. Otherwise you'll end up with a back-sweetend beer. That's basically how they do it in Firkin casks too.
