SR 4759 Going Away

Production of SR 4759 will cease this year. Last time this happened (early 70s?) I managed to get a keg that lasted me until they started making it again (early 90s?). So.....

Yeah I got one of those large 4lb tins when it was axed. It lasted me until I got one of the 5 lb tins.

I am still working on a 12# keg picked up about 30 yrs ago.
But, as said: 4227 also serves well, along with putzing with some 5744
Re 7 also works well for a lot ofpurposes in straight wall ctges.

It maybe going away but you can find it with some patience.
I got an 8 lb jug from Widener's about 6 weeks ago.
