Sure. Set your house thermostat to about 35*F, you'll have lots of cold beer.

6* (I assume *F) is too cold, your beer will freeze.

I just wanted to ask what the difference between beverage grade CO2 and regular CO2 was. Did you have to pay more for it?

I'm very curious about this as well since I'm about to make the "jump." Didn't know there was a beverage grade???

Also, when some of you swap cylinders at a welder's supply, are there ever any issues with cylinders that are "dirty" on the inside?

someone correct me if im wrong, but the difference is with beverage grade they install a "dry filter" in the line when they are filling it. this is to keep any oils and moisture out of your tank.
