Ask Wine Wizard
Would a welding supply company be a good source of argon gas for winemaking?

Dear Wine Wizard,
In the Spring 2000 issue of WineMaker, there was a question about a source of argon. It is a very common welding supply used for inert gas welding. I have not priced it but on a cubic foot basis, the welding supply/compressed gas has got to be cheaper than a specialty house doesn’t it?
