Default CO2 woes...

Last night, Friday night, I had just received my new Perlick to replace a cheap tap that has been mis-behaving. Had a beer that poured really slow. Cleaned my other tap, and....nothing. Ran out of CO2 on a Friday night. Both of the gas distributors that are within driving distance are closed on the weekends.

I was loading the kids in the car this morning to head to the carnival and I noticed my welder in the corner of the garage....500 PSI left in a 20# tank...having beer on Saturday.

CO2 is CO2. I swap my tanks at a welding shop.
