When I was slinging beer for Backcountry Brewing in Frisco CO

we bottled (against my and the brewers advice, the owner didn't want to move to cans, poor dumb & now out of business bastard.)

Even with a good, new-ish top of the line 6 head Meheen, and a good labeler, there was wasted beer, short fills, double labels or mislabeled bottles, plenty of unsellable but perfectly good beer for us to take home or give to people who did nice things for us. And I've never been on a canning line, just bottling, but what I hear from people who have is that they might feel good about 5% in spillage, much more than we had. I have heard folks that use mobile canning services sometimes lose 10% or more to various machine and operator errors.

My guess is Starr Hill is probably tip-top, but even tip-top systems have short fills. That's a good connection to have, jdub!
