Hmm, shame, did it matter if the cylinder was upright or horizontal?

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

Did you get some CO2 from Bablake and how much was the deposit from Whites?

I picked up a couple last Wednesday, prices have changed a little; 14lb CO2 cylinder (ex VAT) £16.76 + £5 deposit, so its £26.11 Inc VAT for the first one and then £20.11 when you swap out the empty one.

Just waiting for my other bits and pieces to come through so I can set up with kegs.

I have been hunting round Bristol trying to find a small co2 bottle and I have finally found somewhere. "Runrite Ltd"
Has anyone used this company before or know a cheaper place to get a 3.15kg bottle?

Runrite Ltd
3.15kg - deposit £55, fill £15
2L - deposit £25, fill £12


Larger bottles work out cheaper:

Bablake wines
14lb, £6 deposit, £20.32 to fill

Whites
14lb, £24 deposit, £22.79 to fill

I've always used whites but i don't think i payed £24 deposit. A larger cyllinder will last ages, i think i get through about one a year.

I need a small bottle as I don't have the room for a larger one. Unfortunately the smaller bottles are very hard to find.
