Hi All,

 

 

 

Can anyone recommend a CO2 cylinder at a reasonable price for a kegerator? - (3 x 19L kegs/taps)

 

 

 

Nick

Bunnings have a cylinder swap system, similar to what you'd do for a BBQ cylinder. You pay a one-off price to buy a full cylinder, which you can then swap when empty for another full cylinder for just the gas price. There are no ongoing rental fees like other providers.

They have a wide range of gasses, including CO2. It's backed by Core Gas, you can get more details on their website.

While maybe not so applicable for your situation, you can swap your empty cylinder for any gas they have - doesn't have to be the same as your empty.

Unfortunately not available in Christchurch - Anyone else sourcing CO2 in CHCH, what options are there?

I would try BOC Gas & Welding Christchurch.

 

If they can't help you, they would likely know who can.

If you want to buy in and then swap Eziswap gas is what you are after.  I guess you want to check they specifically stock the size and type (hospitality) of CO2 you are after. - Under pressure testing looks like the likely place in CCH

 

Boc do rental plans which are annual, or the third option is to own a bottle and just pay for refills.  With that option it will need to be tested every 5 years I believe.  You can work out your miliege and decide which way foward is best for you.

I bought a 5kg cylinder when I set up, but wish I'd gone with Eziswap now.

 

You've still got to buy the cylinder, but you own it and can sell it on if you don't need it any longer.  The beauty is no waiting to fill with the swap, and most importantly no re certifying your cylinder.

Yep (providing you don't get a leak!).

I use CO2 for all my cleaning as well so I'm not trying to make it last either.

Easily run six 19l kegs on that, maybe more, plus cleaning of lines etc.

I've never really measured the use I get out of one full cylinder.
