would anyone know the full and empty weights of a 2.6 keg king, and 540g dieman gas cylinder?

Im going away for the weekend and need enough gas to dispense 3 x 19ltr kegs, and the wife wants me to leave one bottle at home for her.

be careful if you're weighing a cylinder to determine a weight of gas in it and you haven't yourself determined an empty tare weight. I've been told that the tare's on the cylinder, don't include the valve. those valves have got a bit of weight to them.

particularly with your little bottle, the valve could add a hundred or 2 grams,...

from memory, I think the diemen 540g cylinders vary from 820-840g based on the type of valve.

Take it at 900g and you can be sure you have enough gas left for a party ;)
