Ur right. Ignore the manual. Don't be careful with your co2 tank. Accidents don't happen and it won't affect any family members or dogs. Plus we never really store out kegs in tight spaces so that co2 will NEVER be concentrated.

Thanks man. I needed to be brought back down to earth.

Good luck.

I can't understand why anyone would choose not to spend the three minutes it takes to tether a tank of compressed air. As an army medic, that was seocnd nature and common sense to tether or otherwise secure all oxygen tanks, because bad things can happen when compressed air tanks fall down, however unlikely it is. An ounce of prevention...

I went all fancy and spent seven minutes putting a wood frame around mine.

The bigger problem than the gas leak is the torpedo you would create if the valve were to break off. 1200psi can get a compressed air tank moving pretty quick in a hurry. I wouldn't want to be standing in its way.

I went one step further and had one of my guys build a base for mine....all varnished and everything.

It fits snugly and has a broad base. This way I can still easily move the tank as needed, but its stable. I've never managed to accidentally knock the tank over. And, I live in an earthquake prone area....it has passed the test of two strong quakes and lots of smaller tremors.

Thanks everyone for your help! My first kegged beer tastes good (no Pepsi) and seems to have the right amount of carbonation. I brewed the Northern Brewer Sierra Madre pale ale. Nice combo of malt and hops, which is a sweet enough to keep SWMBO happy
