Is this possible?
I bought one of Goliath's little 1.5L bottles in the hope of getting it filled locally but that didn't turn out as I had planned :(
I have a 9L bottle here that I use for my kegs, is there an adapter that can be used to fill the little one?

Ahhh - this might help me a bit - does that mean most gas suppliers won't touch Goliath's bottle?

Thanks!

why do you have to freeze the bottle?

i have the same bootle, and have had it for a few months now, just never got around to getting it filled. Anyone know of a place in geelong or melbs?

Was not cheap MAH

Around $100 perhaps a little more , pays for itself for me as I fill my BOC bottle at work with it as well

You need the 'flexiable cylinder arm filler' and two 'C02 handle assembly'

My problem was that my neighbour, who works for a mob that services fire extinguishers etc, said he should be able to fill it but it turns out his boss wont allow it because they don't have food grade Co2 and I suppose he's scared of liability or something.
Thanks for all the answers so far.

I was told the same thing when I took mine to the fire mob here , should have taken the food grade sticker off the bottle.

Just as an interest here , I did work for BOC in Adelaide in there bottle filling plant , C02 is excactly the same food grade or industrial , same with O2 industrial , food and medical , just different stickers on the bottles and a different price that you pay.

ahh - ok. So does that mean COG or air-liquid will fill the goliath bottles?

I wouldn't want to buy one then ind I can't get it filled!

On an aside, I found that the Brissy mob that do the fire extinguisher conversions now charge $150 + GST + fill. So not quite the bargain it used to be.

BOC or Liquid Air will not fill Goliath bottles
