    Well the unthinkable happend
    Just had my Co2 gas bottle filled and 1 week later i have no gas... stupid leak :(
    In 4 years of use its the first for me and couldnt have happend at the worst time
    Just called Kegking in Springvale Melb (great service)but due too end of month cycle have no gas for refilling untill the 11th or 12th next year when they reopen for the new year
    Right now im thinking i might go purchase a new swap and go 1.5-4kg bottle from kegking as i need to get something smaller(currently have a 7kg) and they are still open tomorrow
    Or if somoene knows of a company nearish to berwick dandenong area that are maybe able to fill a bottle tomorrow that would be great

    BTW merry xmas to all that have beer for xmas and New years LOL :(

    KegKing's website has a map/list of resellers who will swap/fill their bottles for you, did you check that out?
    Edit, link here: http://www.kegking.com.au/stores.html

    Do you have a BOC/Air Liquide in your area?

    At a pinch, sign up and hire the smallest bottle you can to get you through.

    Im with BOC (not by choice)....those that have visited my town will know i dont have ANY other options, and i mean ANY.
    Its not the greatest option, but its way better than running out of beer at the festive end of the calendar.

    I use Fire Protection Services in warrigul. They are easy to deal with.
