I'm starting to get setup with kegging and am going to use a 3.5 kg CO2 fire extinguisher. Was just reading this on the KK website.
Should I be worried having this cylinder in my single garage with internal door into the house? Or is this just a sales pitch?SHOULD I GET A LARGER CYLINDER?
No, a 2.6kg is the largest recommended safe size to be used in domestic environments. CO2 is DEADLY in concentrations above 18% in the atmosphere. A 2.6kg cylinder is the maximum recommended size cylinder you should be using without proper extraction fans and CO2 detecting equipment installed in your cellar or closed bar area. A 3kg CO2 cylinder is enough to make a 50cumic meter room a deadly environment. Only ever use a larger cylnder if you are outside or in an area which is well ventilated.
