Full CO2 Refillable Cylinder 2.6kg/6kg $73/$83 +~$19/$26 Postage (Was $98/$109+p&h) Kegland

190

Need a quicker turn-around on your bottle conditioned home brand extract lager? Sick of paying $19 for a 400g sodastream refill when all you're using it for is carbonating your 3L of cupboard fermented apple juice cider? Look no further than this deal*!

Anyway ~$100 for 6kg of CO2 delivered seemed like enough of a good deal for me to make the jump to kegging instead of bottling home brew, especially when all the local shops were selling them for $150+

Postage cost was what the cart calculated to ship to Brisbane.

Enjoy!

*may also require +$200 of kegs, regulators, adapters, fittings, hoses, fridges etc.

Edit: My 6kg tank just arrived today and it weighs in at 20.0kg according to my xiaomi scales so yes I can confirm they ship full.

    I could use an O2 cylinder though.. and a can of gasoline.. put some payload onto the orbit :D

  •  

    I just bought the 6kg one and had it filled. If you get their sodastream adapter then you can fill the sodastream / sodaking bottles directly and it'll pay for itself within one refill of the 6kg bottle. The $109 bottle including delivery plus the $65 fill, is $174 for 6kg, and is a theoretical equivalent to 15x 400g sodastream bottles at $19 each, costing $285. Happy with my bargain.

    Edit: Note though, it weighs 20kg filled, and you have to hold it upside down while opening the tap to fill it. Some might struggle to do this by themselves, so you could get a friend or make a mount for it.

      Says 6kg Full? What am i missing here?
      Where is the other $65??

      Sorry if this is a stupid question….

      •  

        The description used to say "FULLY CERTIFIED" instead of "FULL" so I asked them on facebook if they were full or not, and they said it was. It appears they have updated the description to make it more clear.

      •  

        My order also said full, and when I cracked the tap, pressurised gas came out. So I initially thought it was full (of CO2), so I tried to fill a sodastream bottle. The pressure was too low to be useful, and the guy at the keg shop where I had it filled said they ship them with a little residual pressure, which might make sense to ensure moisture or bad air doesn't get in there and rust it. Kinda guessing though.

        But apart from the residual pressure, it definitely shipped empty. The $65 was what the local brew shop charged for a 6kg refill.

        •  

          That kinda sucks. The store page does currently state "Comes with 6.0kg of CO2". I suppose the first thing I'll do when it arrives is put it on the scales and check.

        •  

          Did you remove the pressure limiter in the outlet? Requires 5mm hex key. I made this mistake and thought tank was empty. If 6kg tank is 20kg its full. If tank is 14kg its empty.

        •  

          This is a huge gotcha and I'd suggest the deal should be pulled until they clarify. The thing you really are buying is the CO2.

        • +1 vote

          I think you're all right, it should definitely have been shipped with 6kg of CO2. I've emailed them and asked for a partial refund.

        •  

          Any of you lads/ladettes weighed a tank yet or received a refund for the confusion? I need to purchase a (full) cylinder so just curious before I take the plunge.

          I called up a couple weeks ago to check if the 2.6kg/6kg and their soda stream bottle come Empty or Full and was told over the phone that they come FULL straight from their warehouse. Also have placed my order just waiting to have some free time to go pick it up but I emailed them yesterday to confirm again.

          “They come full. If anyone has actually received an empty bottle, it has been emptied by someone during transit.” reply from KegLand.

          Also the refill adapter($15) is currently out of stock if anyone wanted to get the CO2 bottle for refilling that don’t have one yet

          •  

            @babyrexy: Interesting then because the prices are definitely inline with full bottle prices. I wonder if the transport company have emptied them as a precaution? Although, I would imagine items like these get shipped with dangerous goods stickers.

    •  

      You sure you have hold it upside down?
      I have mine sitting on the floor.
      Hmmmm I've only used it three times.

      •  

        I assume the CO2 is liquified at this pressure in which case you’d want to hold it upside down to transfer liquid rather than just gas (either would work, but upside down would last a lot longer).

        That's their video for the refilling process. I believe it depends on whether inside the cylinder there is a tube that means it draw from the bottom of the tank or the top (nozzle). If there is no straw you have to (or should?) hold it upside down, otherwise perhaps you're drawing out the residual air and not the CO2. Maybe once you've drawn the air out, it doesn't matter if you hold it upside down or not.

      Adapter to fill sodastream gas bottles or an adapter to bypass the sodastream gas bottle? Pros/cons?

      •  

        If you've got room around the sodastream machine then bypass adaptor is the way to go, no stuffing around filling bottles. We run a 2.6kg bottle directly attached.

        • -1 vote

          I just checked and the bypass hose is quite pricey. Stingy me might go for the refill option.

      •  

        For me definitely the former, as I have a few bottles and two dispensers (one at work), and I can just keep refilling the bottles when empty. It's only a few seconds to fill the bottle.

    •  

      This was also a question of mine. Rather than retrofit a large bottle in the kitchen somewhere, (I clearly haven't looked into it yet, but) is it possible to refill the standard size sodastream cannisters?

      I'd prefer the flexibility of being able to move my sodastream anywhere within the kitchen rather than having to plum it in or keep it in the garage next to the welding equipment (CO2 bottle).

    Anybody in Melbourne have a price and decent location for where you can refill existing empty bottles (without trekking all the way to Kegland's Springvale HQ).

    Looking at what there may be around the Moonee Ponds, Essendon, Maribyrnong way (or thereabouts).

    Good for Aquariums.

    thanks op
    my current couple of 6kg bottles are less than legit (which makes getting them filled more difficult)
    Effectively 40 bucks for a bottle with a 10 year certification when you include the 6kg gas thats in it

    Love my 6 kg bottle and at $30.00 a refill at UFE, sodastream has never been cheaper (refilling sodastream bottles).

    Essential to have the bottle upside for filling sodastream bottles - I fill 6 at a time. The 6kg bottle balances fine upside down on the neck collar.

  •  

    Hmmm I already have 1x 6kg bottle for the soda stream. Is it excessive to buy a second so I never run out and can refill when it suits me?!?

    • +3 votes

      What about keeping an original 60L refill around to use when your big tank is out getting filled?

  •  

    Also good for planted aquariums!

  •  

    Seeing as the Sodatstream Adapter at Kegland is out of stock until mid-May:
    https://www.kegland.com.au/sodastream-cylinder-filling-adapt...

    Does anyone know if this will work the same way?

    •  

      Did you discover anything for yourself? Any research/googling return an answer. I'm in the same boat.

      •  

        I took the gamble and bought the ebay one - if it doesn't work, there's always ebay returns.

        •  

          If you don't mind can you pm me or check back here when it arrives and you get to use it.

          Cheers. 👍

    Edit: My 6kg tank just arrived today and it weighs in at 20.0kg according to my xiaomi scales so yes I can confirm they ship full.

    same with the one of mine that arrived this week

  •  

    Bought. Thanks OP.

    Got a bit distracted with life and nearly forgot about getting myself a tank! Any idea when it's due to expire?

    I'll be buying a sodastream adapter of sorts (to refill) but at least I have the bottle sorted for now. 👍

    •  

      i think its pretty standard-ish pricing now
      check some of the local homebrew places near you, as if they sell Kegland stuff they could be as long as $90 pickup (cheaper than being shipped if you have one near… my local has them at $90 but i didnt see that until after I'd ordered)

      •  

        Thanks SBOB, Ive see the hoses and I have a kegland close enough by that I could wait until stock arrives. Moreso looking for a refill adapter for the sodastream smaller bottles so that I can retain flexibility of position within the kitchen and not have to be tethered to a large bottle.
