I am in posession of a Coca Cola CO2 cylinder. Is it going to be a major pain in the a$$ to get this thing either filled or swapped out? I got all my other kegging equip. ready and a bitter in the fermenter. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.


Cheers and Fair Winds,
Kevin

It really depends on where you take it. Some shops won't have any problems filling a tank they know is stolen, others wouldn't touch it with a pole.

You might be better off trying a fire extinguisher shop instead of a welding shop.

Last time my welding shop swapped out a 20# tank, the tank they gave me is a Coke CO2 tank, so I would not worry about it.

Fire Extinguisher shop is way more reasonable for gas, and may even have beer gas. Weld shops will generally cost more and be less....lenient.

Some people get real emotional about branded containers.

Others; not so much.

I remember when I tried to get a coke tank refilled in college, they insisted on me showing paperwork with proof of ownership. I ended up buying a 5lb tank then, but I'm supposed to pick up the 20# tank after work today from a local fire extinguisher shop. So as Henry said, it varies from place to place. You really just need to call up a few places and ask.

My experience has been just the opposite.

The Gas shop exchanges my 10 lb. tank for $12 the fire ext. shop charges $18 for a 5 lb. tank refill.

Others seem to share my experience too.

Yeah me too.

Fire safety : $37 for 20lb + tax.
Welding: $28 + tax.
Beverage supply $20 cash out the door.

I think it just depends on where you're at. So far I've found a welding gas place and the fire extinguisher place to be about the same. $27 + tax.
