Hey all,

I was just wondering, as the title suggests, where did the people in Canberra who use an extinguisher get theirs from?

Hey Finger,

I cant help you with anyone in Canberra but I just did a ring around to evryone in Brisbane and found a place that did me a shifty cash in hand deal when I told them it was for homebrew :D ended up costing me $100 for a 3.5kg cylinder filled, tested and they removed the dip stick for me.

I hear around $40 to fill a 3.5kg unit.

My guess is they last as long as a regular cylinder of the same capacity...others with experience will have to confirm/correct this statement tho :)

In Canberra - give Tony from Pub Gas a ring - he usually has a deal on CO2 bottles with no rental - but you have to refill from him....

Hope this helps...

Yeah, I remember you telling me that.

Many thanks too, but Hume is soooo far away from where I live...and I drive a rotor...fuel bills :(

Take your reg along to check but you are after a Wormald or Quell extinguisher, these require no modifications.

Tony from Pub Gas will exchange the cylinders at your home or work so you don't need to drive to Hume. He's always out and about and you usually just give him a day or two notice.
