    Agreed trying to carbonate with a paintball CO2 tank is not a great idea, but you should be
    able to push 2 or 3, 5 gallon kegs with a paintball tank. I was fortunate enough to get my
    hands on a very s...

    I was interested in doing a similar thing, making my own concentrates from fruit. After much
    investigation it seems like freeze concentration is the way to go. Unfortunately there is a lot
    of complica...

    It's been a while since I have been in this thread but I stumbled across this and felt that I

    I just called a local gas supplier here ... the "food-grade" product gets extra filtration
    before going into tanks. The filters are very expensive I guess so not practical for me to buy
    for personal u...

    but not a...
