NEW CO2 GAS CYLINDERS 2.6KG (FULL) [Kegking]
This 2.6kg cylinder is our most popular CO2 cylinder. It's small enough to take with you camping or to a party, put inside a kegerator or hang in the cylinder bracket included with our Keg Masters but large enough to dispense many kegs. Purchasing your own CO2 cylinder is generally cheaper than renting from a gas supplier for periods longer than 12 months.
- Australian Standard Approved
- Hold 2.6kg of gas when full
Dimensions 47cm high x 14cm diameter
- Comes with included carry handle for easy of transport and protection of valve
- Will fit in Keg Master Series 2 and Series 3 Kegerators without reducing the number of kegs it can hold
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 200L or over 10 x 19L kegs. If you are purchasing commercial beer which is already carbonated you should be able to dispense about 400L or 8 x 50L kegs.
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 $25 - $35 for this 2.6kg 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 below 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.
