Default co2 charger

Does anyone know if those 12 gram co2 catridge chargers will work with a sanke keg? and what sort of adapter would I need to get? Thanks

You could get a flare fitting and thread a hose barb onto it for a hose run between the charger and a typical sanke tap. You do know you'll need a sanke tap meant for co2 right?

Note, it's probably going to take about 10 cartridges to dispense a full 1/2BBL.

agree w/ Bobby...it takes 4-5 12gram CO2 bulbs for me to dispense a full 5 gallon corny.

assuming nobody dumps the whole bulb into the keg when I am not supervising.

Yea, I figured I would go through quite a bit of cartridges but I am getting a keg for a party this weekend and I doubt we will drink the whole thing and I dont want it to get wasted from a pump tap... I would love to just get a 5lb tank and reg and save it to use down the road when I keg I cant spare that money until atleast October. So can anyone else think of anything other than the charger setup?

You're looking at about $50 for the sanke tap, charger, case of carts, and misc fittings and it's probably the best you can do in the short term. It's certainly cheapest.

I used to play paintball and still have some old small co2 tanks from that. I have found a reg on craigslist for $10 and if I am able to get it by friday what would I need to hook the paintball tank to the reg? That may very well be the cheapest route.

You'll need a paintball tank to reg converter fitting. I think Williams sells them. In any case, you're still going to need a Sanke tap that accepts a CO2 input. They won't have them for rent at the liquor store (that I know of).

EDIT: Dang, Bobby beat me to it. As he said, you'll still need a new sanke and you will probably want an on/off valve as well...
