No problem, I too take my propane to ace for refills. I found that the exchange program and me brewing at least once monthly and grilling I was exchanging tanks almost monthly!

Re CO2: yes, there is a difference in CO2 grades, with "lab" being the highest and is also certifiable (think hospital grade oxygen).

And in addition to.....yes the type of tank is also important as well. Food grade will normally have some type of protective layer in case of back flow....
This is the only olace in Atlanta that I've heard sales the "food grade" co2. I live close to barrett pkwy I wonder what "type" of co2 is used for paintball? And how much more harmful is it compared to the food grade?? Hmmmm...

Thanks for all the information!

I would venture to say that most of the folks that get CO2 refills on this forum aren't paying for "food grade". I don't think the differences are enormous, but I guess someone with more knowledge on the subject could prove me wrong, but I get mine filled at a local fire extinguisher place, I know tons of folks who also get them filled at paintball shops (for a lot more money) and I haven't heard of anyone having any problems on here yet. YMMV.

I work in the industrial gas business and typically when co2 is put on a truck, it is food grade. Industrial grade is normally put in a pipeline and sent to an industrial site. Obviously all the co2 places we are talking about here got their co2 off a truck.

I second Beverage Control off Mountain Industrial Blvd
Why pay more to exchange your shiny tank for an ugly one when you can have it refilled for less?

How about Airgas on North St. Downtown. Has anyone tried them? I'm also in the market and I currently send my 5lb bottle home with a coworker that lives near beer necessities. That works but I would like something a little closer and North is right around the corner from the office. Thanks!
