    CO2 cylinder with turn valve


    Hey guys, looking for a CO2 cylinder with a turn valve. I got myself a kegging setup (keg, lines, regulator, disconnects) and I need a CO2 cylinder now. On a super tight budget so the cheaper the better.

    I saw a while ago someone said something about buying refurbished cylinders, and that kinda sounds like my jam. Otherwise - someone have a spare cylinder lying around somewhere I can pick up for a song? I can also pay in fresh wort kits...

    I'm going to get a 2kg for now. I asked here before calling around, and I just got a 2kg one (without turn valve, but I'll use the lever for now), filled, for R400. That's not bad pricing, I believe. I'll add more later on, but I don't drink too much so 2kg of more than enough for now for me. I've also only got one keg (wanted to buy another off the forum here but I just can't right now), and one regulator, so I don't want to buy too much right now.

    yea, i used the lever for quite a while, they do leak eventually. also, that's a damn good price. 2kg lasts me around 6 months, the second one is usually filled in this time so i dont run out, but it's not a must have - it's a convenience, i'd ratherget another keg before another cylinder

    Damn that is long. Do you use it when cleaning lines/kegs? I need to approach that a bit differently

    For quantifying some...
    I use a sodastream cylinder and I currently use one charge of 400g to carbonate and dispense bubble water from 2 x 19L corneys at about 3.5 to 4 volumes, then its kinda done. [Both coupled together]

    2kg will last you well while you still have a single corney (so, until next week when you get another one)
    Cheers,
    Lang

    I do yes, but you need very little pressure(gas) to do that

    Maybe I should check how long my 5kg one lasts, the 2kg went a bit quick, but I think it also had to do with my learning curve and setting up everything in the keezer etc.

    I have a 2kg hooked up to 4x19l kegs for beer and 1x9l keg for soda water.
    I don't go through beer that quick (maybe a keg lasts 2 months) but we refill the sofa water every 2nd week.

    I last filled that 2kg just as the level 5 lockdown stopped and it is still showing no signs of dropping.

    I have 2x5kg which I use for force carbing, cleaning etc ...
