CO2 Gas Cylinders 6kg (FULL)
This 6kg cylinder is ideal if you're carbonating and/or dispensing large amounts of beer or live far away from a filling station. Purchasing your own CO2 cylinder is generally cheaper than renting from a gas supplier for periods longer than 12 months.
- Australian Standard Approved
- Holds 6.0kg of gas when full
- Dimensions 71cm high x 16cm diameter
- Comes with included carry handle for easy of transport and protection of valve
Note: The 2.6kg cylinder (also available) will fit in Keg Master Series 4 Kegerators without reducing the number of kegs it can hold.
Note: In order to ship these larger cylinders they will be received with slightly less than 6kg of CO2.
Typically you will use about 6g per litre of CO2 for carbonating and/or 6g per liter to dispense from a kegerator. If you are brewing and carbonating your own beer, without accounting for any wastage you should be able to carbonate and dispense about 500L or over 25 x 19L kegs. If you are purchasing commercial beer which is already carbonated you should be able to dispense about 1000L or 20 x 50L kegs.
These calculations are for use when the kegs are cold like a kegerator. If you are dispening the beer and the keg is at room temperature like with a jockey box you will need a higher dispense pressure and use more gas.
Once the cylinder is empty there are many places around Australia where it can be filled or exchanged for a full one. Click the "Stockists" link up the top of the page (or at the bottom of the side menu for mobile) to see a map of these locations. This will usually cost about $50 - $70 for this 6.0kg cylinder.
To prevent prematurely emptying your cylinder it is highly recommended to thoroughly check for leaks and preform a pressure check. Check out the video to see how to do this.
