The only other similar service that I’ve aware of is White Labs “Big QC” Day.  With that got you was two beers tested for $139.  That was marketed as a $500 service.  To be fair it’s been a while since I’ve seen that offered and I don’t know if this is the most recent price.  Also that included more tests than this kit does.  I think… Diacetyl, alcohol content, calories, color, real and apparent attenuation and microbiological contaminants.  Some of those tests are still available with this analysis kit for an additional charge.
