Posted in thread: Can you keep the Co2 bottle in the keezer with the corny kegs? on 09-01-2015 at 01:05 PM
Yup, it works fine and many of us do it. The vapor pressure inside the CO2 tank will drop a bit
but this does not affect the capacity. Some regulators can respond a little slower at fridge

I bought a 20 oz paintball tank for ~$30 Dick's Sporting Goods, it's $4.50 to refill it and the
first fill is free. I bought an adapter so that I can use a standard regulator with it. It's
great as a ...

The beer doesn't touch the top of the keg during serving :pAs long as the posts are clean and

If it's rated for the pressure it should be OK.

It was leaking at the swivel end. What I did ended up fixing the problem.I'm confused, you
shoved the tubing around the threaded flare fitting instead of the barb? I guess if it works

Liquid leaks are very easy to find; just follow the beer!If the post was connected it's not the

Thanks! I am going to brew it this weekend. I was going to use my US-05 home strain but am
starting to get worried about it being up to the task. I may suck it up and go straight
US-06/1056.US-05 is t...

So, to further digress into the land of brew science, when I purchase a cylinder of co2, am I

dissolved in a liqu...
