Thread: CO2 cylinders

  1. #31

    Intrigued, do they come in pin lock or only ball lock?

    What does it cost new bottle included as I have nothing at the moment.
    Ocean fire in Springfield. It's R35 for a refill not a cylinder so you need to bring them an empty to fill.

    I've only ever seen them in the ball-lock version

    I'm thinking this could also be just the thing for the occasional bottle fill from keg.
    Just a tube (Altho the tube only helps when counter-filling from keg so it fills from the bottom but I have it connected permanently to the adapter)...
    Leave a little head space in bottle when filling with water ...
    Squeeze out air before tightening adapter ...
    Connect the gas at ±40psi and shake the shit out of the bottle for ±25sec .... so I have fresh soda water with a minute.

    Like this, but I keep the line connected while shaking ...

    The connect-disconnect-reconnect disconnect does seem a bit pointless. Also, I prefer a S/S carb cap like yours for the same price as that plastic one.

    I was quite keen on this as a counter pressure filler option, but I think I will try make one first, and see how that turns out. And then get one of these if that doesnt work out.

    Yip, the price on that plastic version is a bit high and it also doesn't feature the counter fill option (no barb)

    Well, going by all the other stuff you've designed so far, Im sure you'll come up with something worthwhile

    Have both the carbonation cap and one of these;
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/304-Stainle...oAAOSwFGNcUXCY

    Well not, the exact item, but this sort of thing. Mounted it on a hinged wooden block and it works a treat for bottling from a keg. Use this anytime I want beer to last longer than a week.

    Less than a week I fill my growlers with a piece of silicon tubing straight on the tap - just make sure you keep your empty, sterilised growler in the fridge and pour a helf pint to drink first. Almost no foam if everything is cold.

    Yea Im kind of a bit anxious to get some of my kegged beer in bottles. Im not really finding them amazing, and think they will age well though. Also want to be able to give people some beers in bottles. So I have just thrown together a cheapy, that will do the job, just waiting for some push fit fittings.

    I think with most of the commercial fillers and spundings you are just paying for a lot of adaptors from this thread to that thread to another thread, and it becomes bulky and expensive.

    I do want a carb cap one day when im big though.

    clever idea

    Close both taps, open gas for purge, close gas, open beer tap for fill?

    Cool. I take it the section with the yellow sticker seal against the top of the bottle .... how are you letting air out the bottle so liquid can flow in?

    Would also be better if you could get that center tube ID smaller because beer flowing from a small to large diameter could force COČ out of the beer causing you to have more foam than wanted ?? ... well thats what I think at least ... the first test would tell

    Yup. Just for simples sake want to see how easily it works just controlling pressure by how hard I push the washer down on the bottle (and let gas escape past the washer as required). It should **really** be like the below image (ms paint photoshop job), with a valve of sorts, but trying to KISS.

    I suspect(ed) the same, but wanted to use standard Builders Whorehouse hardware items. Then I also figured, that wider pipe will have slower flow and might actually be better!? Pouring into the bottom of the bottle is effectively flowing from a small diameter to a large diameter anyway. Those were my thoughts but I guess the proof will be in the pudding. Will let you know when I get the chance to play around with it.

    With a bit of digging, I see commercial can fillers seem to also have quite a large filler spout (Though I cant see the inside of the 'tube'):
