    The gas line was a pun. As far as a business plan goes, help us out here. What made you think of doing this? Have you figured out how much it's gonna cost to set it up, and if there's even a good return on investment? (i.e. you are gonna make more money than you spend?)

    And lastly, why are you asking a theatrical forum for this sort of advice? We use LN for special effects, but as far as I know, no-one makes it in-house. I'm not trying to beat up on you, I'm just curious. It's not an everyday sorta conversation topic! :)

    While this is a nice idea, the reason it’s so expensive is the safety factors, the purity and equipment used to convert it.

    Honestly this isn’t something you can do out of your garage and stay in business long because of explosions or a neighbor thinking you are cooking meth.

    While your idea is an awesome one I don’t think it’s a viable one. As far as selling it to a 14yr old the only way around the age is getting an LLC and having it sold to a company. If I were a Gas salesman I definitely wouldn’t sell to you on a moral/ethical stand point.

    But why did you ask here, on ControlBooth? We deal with LN solely in relation to special F/X, not food grade LN. Also, how do you plan on moving LN from your site to a customer? There are regulations on how LN can be transported safely and even more rules when you start transporting commercially)
