    Ugh. Why can't I figure out who PMs work here? I use a ton of other vBulletin forums and have no problems there...

    No worries. It may be because your post count is too low. I'll make some treks downtown to see if I can hunt them up.

    Yeah, I was thinking it must be post count. But, at least, you have it narrowed to downtown Louisville. Enjoying a little WL12 right now!

    Still quite a bit of W12 in the Jax FL area. Picked up a handle yesterday on sale $45.

    Here is another take on the "situation"

    Just gossip. Just as others have said it's regional and sproradic. This region is flush and has been consistently. Some regions aren't so lucky.

    Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    "You heard it here first" except I've herd this scenario multiple times, although the other versions were devoid of the snickering conspiracy. as chuck cowdery has pointed out countless times VW is a drop in the bucket compared to weller. I think the entire production of VW last year was like 8,000 bottles (I think). You could grow that 5 fold before it even registered with weller. It's just simple supply and demand. Weller will return soon. likely with a mild price increase

    And disclaimer, I am not endorsing the theories in that blog post just linking for your reading pleasure. With that said its easy to see how people would connect the dots if W12 is scarce where they are AND there happens to be more ORVW10/107 and Lot B this fall. The first may be true and the second remains to be seen. Makes for good message board talk. And BTW there seems to be plenty of W12 in my neck of the woods.

    Not really. Julian said late last year that that there would be much more available this fall (2013) than in previous years. So, that's nothing new nor is it speculation (unless something unforseen by Julian happens.) Let's say that they release 4 or 5 times as much as they had in the past. That would still probably make up less than 1% of BT's wheater output. The shortages in certain areas is clearly a direct result of supply and demand.
