Keg King 6 Kilo Gas Cylinders are a great way to put the pressure on your carbonated beverages and not on your pocket book. All our gas bottles are Australian certified and hydro tested to ensure performance for 10 years from the manufacturing date*.
As of February 2019, Keg King 6 Kilo Gas Cylinders feature our new improved handle design that makes them easier to orient and/or remove. These new handles screw directly onto the metal threads that are manufactured on the cylinder top.
This 6kg cylinder is ideal if you're carbonating and/or dispensing large amounts of beer or live far away from a filling station. Purchasing your own CO2 cylinder is generally cheaper than renting from a gas supplier for periods longer than 12 months.
- Australian Standard Approved
- Holds 6.0kg of gas when full
- Dimensions 75cm high x 16cm diameter
- Comes with included carry handle for easy of transport and protection of valve
Typically you will use about 6g per litre of CO2 for carbonating and/or 6g per liter to dispense from a kegerator. If you are brewing and carbonating your own beer, without accounting for any wastage you should be able to carbonate and dispense about 500L or over 25 x 19L kegs. If you are purchasing commercial beer which is already carbonated you should be able to dispense about 1000L or 20 x 50L kegs.
These calculations are for use when the kegs are cold like a kegerator. If you are dispening the beer and the keg is at room temperature like with a jockey box you will need a higher dispense pressure and use more gas.
Once the cylinder is empty there are many places around Australia where it can be filled or exchanged for a full one. Click the "Stockists" link up the top of the page (or at the bottom of the side menu for mobile) to see a map of these locations. This will usually cost about $50 - $70 for this 6.0kg cylinder.
To prevent prematurely emptying your cylinder it is highly recommended to thoroughly check for leaks and preform a pressure check. Check out the video to see how to do this.
These cylinders should never be operated inverted. The valve must always be upright.
