20 oz. co2 paintball tank
tire inflators (stainless)
regulator (but im not sure what kind, and i want to keep it cheap)
some 2 liter bottles
thanks so much in advance, im very new to this and dont want to directly get a kegging system cause i dont have the space.
If you want to go cheap first cost...
Genuine Innovations makes a Cornie Keg charger($20) that uses cartridges ($2) The trigger is sensitive enough there is no need for a regulator to charge a PET bottle.
A couple feet of 1/4 ID braided tube, a male to male adapter, and 1/4" threaded hose barb can connect up to a DIY carbonator cap. A couple hose clamps if you want and I made a "chuck" with a valve stem extension.
Combine that with a ss tire stem as you've said and its time to force carb some beer.
