Having seen your setup, I have a minikeg the same size. I use mine with " ready " beer on awaydays.
I have fitted a mini regulator and adapter to use a sodastream cylinder. This is much more controllable and a little cheaper. As others mention large CO2 cylinder is cheapest gas and you can get an adapter that allows you to refill your sodastream cylinders.
My keg only a dull silver not racing black.
Glad it all worked out for you.

I used to have an adaptor for sodastream to use paintball canisters. I bet you can do the same for these

Those cartridges are crazy expensive for the tiny bit of CO2 they provide...
Look on Craigslist, Amazon's Marketplace, etc. for any (local) offerings of a real CO2 tank.

damn, and i didn't want to say a 1 gallon keg is only a day's worth.....thought a buck or so for a keg was alright for a keg of beer?

this regulator looks like it would fit the adapter you show. I think it's a kegland product.


4 dollars US so about 8 NZ dollars is a bargain to fill. Here a sodastream refill 60 litre the larger one costs US 13 to 14 dollars.

Rip off!

Thanks again everyone. I'm going to work on getting a proper kegging system. I'll start a new thread with THOSE questions that I'm sure have been answered plenty of times lol

Involves 2.5 gallon kegs, 5lb co2 tank and the hose party tap things. Once I have a plan I'll post for advice..

Thanks to all of you again
