Liquid Nitrogen

I want to get my hands on liquid nitrogen for various culinary and science reasons but am having issues finding smaller bottles..basically all the websites I have found consist of basically "bulk" sizes for lab use. Currently living in small town Wisconsin I can't find a local supplier.
Anyone have any information on getting my hands on this stuff?

If you have a local distributor for CO2, the should have what you need, they normally carry dry ice and liquid nitrogen as well.

It you do find it, just be careful with the stuff. Improperly stored it can be explosive enough to blow limbs off, as a young man in Germany found out. And a small amount can drive all the air out of a good sized room, killing anyone trapped in there with it. Check out this primer on the safe use and storage of liquid nitrogen.
