Empty cylinders can be refilled by most local homebrew stores around Australia.
Most places can fill on the spot for you, or they offer a swap and go type service. Typically this will cost between $20-35 for a 2.6kg Cylinder and $40-60 for a 6kg Cylinder.
These cylinders come with a 10 year approved life span. After this time for CO2 fillers to be able to fill your bottle, you will need to get it hydro statically tested for your safety and theirs while filling it for you.
This can easily be done at a local fire station or a certified gas mechanic/supplier.
Warning: Only use in the upright position. Or you run the risk of breaking your regulator with liquid CO2
Need a bigger tank?
If you are looking for a CO2 with a higher capacity, please see our 6kg CO2 Gas Bottle - Full.
The 6kg can dispense up to 1000L and carbonate and dispense up to 500L of beer.
(Typically 6g of CO2 used per L to dispense. Or 12g of CO2 to carbonate and dispense)
Prior to use
We strongly suggest testing your connections prior to leaving the cylinder on.
To do this watch our video here OR read below
Disconnect the gas side of your set up from your kegs.
Turn on the gas at the black valve
Turn the grey regulator clockwise until the low pressure side reaches 40psi
Turn off the black valve at the top of the bottle.
Wait 2+ Hours (or leave overnight)
If the left and right pressure gauge on the regulator has dropped or is showing 0psi. Then it is safe to say you have a leak somewhere in the line. You will need to check all connections with soapy detergent water to locate the leak.
We recommend checking all clamped sections, or if you’re using push in fittings, to ensure they’re not bending or being stretched as this will cause a micro leak.
Please note this item cannot be sent with Australia Post.
Unlike some other alloy steel cylinders, the kingcave gas cylinders are made with a RPV fitting into the valve opening. As a result our cylinders only require 10 years periodic hydro testing not 5 year like other silimare cylinders. This can be seen in the AS2030 standard here: 10 Year Periodic Testing Interval. When this cylinder eventually requires a hydro test you can swap it with another cylinder in our exchange program in which case we absorb the hydro test cost at our premesis in Springvale or alternatively take it into a hydro testing facility to get the test done.
