Found this awhile back...

You can also go with a 5L or jam a bung in a drilled 2L cap.

That is what I am going to be using. I think I have heard people say they get about 5 kegs out of a 5lb tank so then you should be able to get a little over a keg out of it.

o yeah, duh. 20oz is just over a pound so if you have a 5 pounder and can get 5-8+ kegs you should be able to get one and a little more keg out of a paintball tank....thanks for talking me through this!

I have two paintball tanks available so this will be good.

This may mean more refilling for some people, but I purely want my keg "system" for portability and infrequent one time uses.

I am going to be using the same thing. You just have to make sure that your tank either has an on/off valve instead of pin valve or a paintball remote line since the reg doesnt have anything to depress the pin in the valve

Most people only dispense with the paintball tank and they dispense and carb with the 5# tank, so you can probably dispense a lot more than one keg with a 20oz tank.
