CO2 GAS CYLINDERS 6KG (FULL KegKing)
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 ease of transport and protection of the 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 dispensing 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 perform a pressure check. Check out the video to see how to do this.

Prior to use
We strongly suggest testing your connections prior to leaving the cylinder on.
Disconnect the gas side of your set up from your kegs.
Turn on the gas at the black valve
Turn the grey regulator clockwise until the low pressure side reaches 40psi
Turn off the black valve at the top of the bottle.
Wait 2+ Hours (or leave overnight)
If the left and right pressure gauge on the regulator has dropped or is showing psi. Then it is safe to say you have a leak somewhere in the line. You will need to check all connections with soapy detergent water to locate the leak.
We recommend checking all clamped sections, or if you’re using push in fittings, to ensure they’re not bending or being stretched as this will cause a micro leak.
