I am in the process of making/building a keezer and I noticed that I would have some space in front of the refrigeration panel and that triggered the wildest thought. Install the CO2 tank horizontally!
However I do not know the internal guts of a CO2 tank. Would it be an issue to use it...
Just started getting into kegging. My regulator has a range of "Order gas" at or below 500 psi. Assuming a 5 lb co2 tank and brewing a moderately carbonated ale. How low of PSI do you need be able to complete carbonation? Would there be any left to serve with?
I have a 10 gallon SS Brewtech Brite Tank for sale. Only 3 months old and hardly used. It's an awesome vessel that's worked perfectly. Doesn't have any issues, just need a bigger one so I'm selling this. Has a few very small surface scratches (see pics) but you have to look close to see them...
800 Gallon stainless steel dairy tanks with manway for cleanout.
There are 2 available.
Both were decommissioned due to refrigeration fault only.
1 Surge 800 gallon tank
1 Delaval 800 gallon tank
Both are located in southeastern PA
So I'm finishing my set up and I am installing 2 rectangular stainless steel tanks (filled with water) attached with coils to preheat and then pasteurize my semi-sweet cider bottles.
The first tank will be at around 45 degrees Celsius and the second one at around 75C.
Calculating the PUs onces...
I used to have my CO2 tank inside my keezer, but now I moved it outside. So, I'm a little worried that someone will topple it over when accessing my Perlick beer faucets. I have 5, 10 and 15 lb tanks.
Does anyone have plans for building a stand to keep the CO2 tanks upright? Or, can...
Does anyone have any experience sourcing used, good quality, large capacity fermenting tanks? My small orchard (~400 trees) is coming into bearing age, and it's time for me to start thinking about moving away from 5 gallon plastic carboys and put on my big boy pants.

I've been contemplating building my own kegerator out of a mini fridge and a door mounted faucet and shank (to hold one corny). Everything about the project is pretty cheap except for the CO2 tank. Anyone know where a poor college kid could find a cheap tank to get him through grad school...
I still need a 5# Co2 tank for my Keezer setup and it seems like ordering a nice, shiny new aluminum tank is a waste since when I go to get it "filled" it is likely they'll just swap the tank out for a crusty used on that has been pre-filled. So it will probably be cheaper just to buy that...
