    Great price but delivery is a killer… C&C?

      I would assume the option for delivery is an error, because its a price for gas only.

    • +2 votes

      Estimated delivery is $8.99 for a total of $22.29. If this means you get the entire bottle without having to do a swap then this is quite good as the Sodastream bottle on it's own is ~$35 from memory.

        if i order 6 gases ……. what will happen ?

      •  

        Looks like on the website, they are selling the Stand alone gas botles separately for a discounted price of $24.50 and so I assume that you technically need to swap your gas cylinder in for that $13 deal.

        That being said, I think you can try to order it online and pay the $8.99 delivery and let us know if they complain that it was not a canister swap type deal.

        I forgot that I already have a spare Sodastream one so I not need a third canister at my home.

    if you use your soda stream a lot then this large gas bottle is worth considering

    currently $93.29 delivered for 2.6kg CO2 Gas Cylinder Filled with Gas

    equivalent to 6.5 refills.

    At $13 a refill, thats $84.50 for the gas alone. Where this really saves money is on the second refill. To refill a 2.6KG tank, most places charge $25-$30.

    you will need to be the bottle adapter for $15 as well.

    please note - all the above info comes from the original gas bottle deal by outlander - kudos

      How do you get it delivered filled with gas?

      The listing you linked says "Our 2.6Kg gas bottles come ready to fill. "

        It comes full.

        I've been using mine fairly solidly since July and it's been great. The quick release valve was a bit dodgy but Kegland were great to deal with and sent me fixed connectors to replace it with.

        Highly recommended

          Ok Thanks. The URL does say "co2-gas-cylinders-2-6kg-full.html"

          But the description on the page says "ready to fill" so I wasn't sure.

          I wonder if it can be used to refill a Sodastream gas bottle or if it can only be used piped up to a Sodastream/Sodaking machine?

            @seb:

            I wonder if it can be used to refill a Sodastream gas bottle or if it can only be used piped up to a Sodastream/Sodaking machine?

            Yes, it can do both. You'll need this adapter to refill the standard Sodastream-compatiable bottle.

              @Lorindor: I have one of these and adaptors that can
              - pipe straight to sodastream (I dont really use it as can fill the existing sodastream bottle)
              - Connector to refill Sodastram bottle.
              - Connector to Carbonate your own drink contained in a soda bottle eg. A coke bottle.
              They are Handy.
              Hardest part is finding a place in Sydney (close to CBD) to refill the 2.6kg bottle (rather than swap out)

            •  

              @Lorindor: Thanks for sharing this, I knew about this but all tubes that went from the large bottle directly to th soda stream were around $100, this is far more attractive.

                @RandomFox: If you do head down this path.
                Tip: Stick your soda stream bottle in the freezer for a couple of hours before filling. You will get more CO2 into it. I never have a problem in getting it full. If empty, weight it and then weigh it after the fill. This way you know how much CO2 went in.
                Its cold so use a towel to hold it :-)

      Great tip, thanks! I just had a look at their website and they have the 6kg bottle on sale for $84.95 plus shipping ($23.67 to Brisbane). I just bought one. That'll keep an average punter like me going for some years, I'd say. Link here.

      There are more CO2 molecules in that cylinder than there are grains of sand on Earth

      you've got my attention.

      how and where do you get the 2.6kg tank filled?

      I have a sodaking machine - so if you're saying it's 6.5 refills - then that means my tank must be aroun 400g (sounds about right, i'll check tonight)

      I currently pay $18.95 for every refill

        Typically beer brewing stores. The big guys like BOC gases really start with 6 kg, and industrial places don't typically do hospital/food grade CO2.

        I gave up on the 2.6 kg bottle in the end - I go through 4 litres a day and like it much fizzier than Sodastream can do (50 psi vs their 30 psi). First fill lasted me 4 months. Went to a 6 kg bottle which I'll get about 10 months out of. If you drink much less than I do, go for the 2.6 kg though, as the 6 kg bottle is huge.

        If anyone from Sydney wants to buy a 2.6 kg bottle - perfect condition, bought new, emptied once, never refilled, you can have it for $40. Was going to keep it around for the period when I empty the 6 kg and haven't swapped it over, but I can just have a few bottles from the supermarket ready.

        •  

          Or you could top up you 2.6 kg bottle from your 6kg one. This way you have a decent size bottle on hand when 6kg runs out :-)

          •  

            @Borg: Not a bad idea - I do recall that there was a more expensive 6 kg bottle with an eductor tube to allow liquid withdrawal of CO2 - not sure if I would need that. Knowing me though, I'd put the 2.6 kg away somewhere, spend a day looking for it and give up.

    •  

      I did this 6 months ago - I use a lot of soda water, I bought the bottle and a hose that connects straight to my machine. $90 for hose, $90 for 2.6kg cylinder and fill

    Does anyone know if Spotlight accept the empty Sodastream branded CO2 bottles and swap with the filled Sodaking bottles?

    • +3 votes

      If I wasn't so lazy I'd ring them and ask myself. Although my Sodastream bottle is still more than half full.

      Someone posted in another ObG post that they just stripped off the plastic wrapping and got it done as the staff had no clues.

  •  

    This is just a refill isn't it……..not a bottle with gas as I need a 2nd bottle?

  •  

    What's a 'cylinder excahnge point'?

  •  

    I dont have a soda stream system,but this price is a bargain compares to woolies. Selling air is kind of genius, IMHO.

    Very healthy buy now at a low price!
