Thanks Dave. I guessing that I would probably use a 5 liter jug in less than
5 years (especially if I ever get that 120 I've always dreamed of having),
but still I see your point.

Another person said they thought there may be some microbial breakdown of
TMG after a time, unless it is kept refrigerated.  My wife won't allow that,
I'm pretty sure. :) Then again, even if half of it went bad I'd still be
breaking even.
