Inexpensive 5lb aluminum CO2 tank


Good deal? 5 lb aluminum CO2 tank for $45 + shipping (depends on location) available from NYBrewSupply after coupon c02for45. Not sure for how long this code will be valid. You will need to add some other small item to your cart to make the code work. Sourced from slickdeals.

Those are nice prices but I still prefer to shell out a little extra and buy from a welding company for one reason. There are regulations to tanks so they keep the tanks up to date and its free to us for the most part. At least until they have us pay a little extra for refills to compensate.

those co2 tanks from online store are normally stamped within the same month, or fresh tested and stamped before it is box up and ship.

Eventually they will get out dated is what I was getting at. I let the welding company maintenance the tank. I always get great conditioned tanks on my refill without worries. If I damage one of their tanks, they fix it without charges coming out of my pocket.

Thanks Bettatail, this is the one I got from there, cost was $61 after shipping I believe, not bad - and this one is aluminum! Should go nicely with the CO2 rig I bought from you, hehe.
