I'm looking into what size CO2 canister to get.

Sadly I don't have a car, so will probably have to carry it in a rucksack (if needs be I'll buy a 60 litre rucksack - current I have a 30 litre hill walking rucksack and a 25 litre one which is much taller and designed for hillwalking.)

I think my CO2 tank is 2.5lbs which is enough for several 5 gallon kegs (including purging oxygen, carbonating and serving). It's probably 16-18" tall including valve but not regulator and 5-6" diameter.

That's roughly 1.1kg CO2, 400-450mm tall and 125-150mm diameter.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help and converting to metric
