CO2 supply in Raleigh

I just wanted to throw this up here, because I see the question asked and answered over time.

Two places that I know of to get CO2:

This place sells CO2, and occasionally tanks. It's call Brewmaster, and they refill a 5lb tank for about $20 while you wait:

This places sells CO2, but you can't pick your tank. As I understand it, you can keep your tank if you ask nicely:

I don't plan to ask to keep my tank there because they still stick a nasty label on it, and it's not that cheap. Also, they are only open during normal business hours, so that may not be convenient for me in the long term.


I forget how much Brewmasters charged me for an Al 5lb tank, but I think it was about $85.

The welding supply company charged a little less than $100 for the first one, and exchanges are also about $20.

I hope this helps someone someday.

Thanks for the referral. I used American Brewmaster today. Staff was friendly and it was pretty quick. The cost is now $25 to fill a 5lb tank.

Just wanted to follow up on this.
I'm looking for a place in Raleigh and Brewmaster was about $36.00 now for 10 lb Co2. Not sure why it's so much??
Called College Beverage on Western Blvd and it's $25 to refill a 10lb tank.

Airgas will not refill
Called National Welder, they were a tank exchange only.. way too expensive.

College Beverage is the best so far??

I use American Brewmaster, but I also brew my own beer so its 2 birds with one stone for me.

Just as an update...
Purchased a 5# Co2 tank from Mike at Simplex Grinnell off 264 in East Raleigh for $40+tax yesterday (filled). Their refill price would be about $19 on this. They can also hydrotest on site and have 10#+ tanks available. They do not sell regulators.
