I have the chance to buy this full for 30 usd. Is that a good deal and the right type of bottle?

i dont know much about it but that looks like it takes the medical type regulator. if its a medical tank you might have trouble finding someone to fill it, you generally need a prescription.

So you can't take that tank to a drive shop, fire shop or Praxair to get it filled?

Just got off the phone with Praxair, the guy told me that they will exchange any tank, but they cannot refill this one with out a R/X. So then told me that the med tank is worth around 150usd and they can change it out for any tank that I want. SOLD

Now thinking about it, I've seen alot of tanks go on CL, non CO2 tanks cheap, wish I would have bought them now.

You can get a regulator for that for $19 shipped on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Medical-Oxyg...item35beca8fd7

I use a med bottle for my setup and I like it because I set the exact amount of O2 I want because the regulator is marked in liters per minute.

OK I got this tonight, what setting do you set yours at? Plus I got a 5# Co2 tank off the guy when I was there, all for 50usd.

In Chris White's book Yeast he recommends 2 liters per 5 gallons of 1.050 and below. Add 1 liter for every increase of ten points. So that is 1 liter per minute for two minutes or 2 liters per minute for 1 minute.

Nice deal buy the way.

That 4 lpm gauge has a .5 lpm setting I think. So you can trickle it in for 5-6 minutes
