Anything further on this? I was hoping to find a place near Palm Harbor, but everyone I call only wants to do a tank exchange. Crumpton's said they would fill it for $16, so I'm prolly gonna head over there in a few minutes after traffic dies down.

Somehow everyone started talking about propane refills when the OP was about CO2.

For CO2, I go to Tackleshack Watersports at 7801 66th Street North in Pinellas Park. It's about a mile south of the Beer and Winemaker's Pantry LHBS on 66th, so it's convenient to get the CO2 at the same time I go buy grain.

It is about $16 for a 5lb CO2 refill, which seems to be about average pricing.

16 bucks is about as good as it gets. I get mine from Tackleshack as well.

So am I the only one who connects the airlock on a fermenting carboy to a cornie through a check valve, and "naturally" carbonates?

As mentioned, B21 on US19. They fill your tank (no exchange) while you wait. $10.

You're joking right? I mean it would work on theory but in practice I think the glass carboy would burst. You could do it if you were fermenting in a keg though. Of course you could just naturally carb in the keg using a spunding valve, there's a lengthy thread around here to that effect which I am sure you've seen.

Really interesting though, using the primary to carb a corny would save you the hassle of transferring carbed beer (that is if you were doing the pressure fermentation thing).

So many experiments, so little time.

Anyone know of a place that'll do exchanges? Just picked up a kegerator over the weekend. Not sure what shape the tank is in (seems kinda old and beatup) so I'd rather just swap it for a new one.
