Sodastream CO2 on a cornie

Using one of these http://www.co2supermarket.co.uk/sodastr ... rs-p1.html a soda stream bottle and regulator from the malt miller, I have a portable gas system for camping!

Just thought I'd share for anyone looking for easy refill systems

That's an excellent price - a few years back I ended up paying at least 3 times that for a similar adaptor so I could have a mobile gassing solution for my cornies!

Works well. I needed a 2nd reg so I didn't need to disconnect my main supply.

Nice. Well done Secla. I'm testing it out this Thursday onwards. I'll let people know how it goes.

16g of CO2 is enough to pressurize a half size cornie to dispense 7l out of a 9l (according to TMM). The 400g in a soda stream should keep you going a while.

having now attached it and checked it was working, I highly recommend http://www.co2supermarket.co.uk/sodastr ... -p171.html

it may be a few more quid, but does stop you from almost blowing up the reg (they have a fairly high pressure - my reg is 4 bar and the valve was open, so I ended up putting the full bottle straight full pressure into the reg) and on disconnection it's much easier for transport.

The other works fine as well, just need to be more careful with it!

I use that system when taking a keg to a party. Lasts for ages too if you only use it as a top up.

Hats off to you.

Anyone who has a seperate gas system so that they can take their kegged homebrew camping with them gets my respect.
Thats pretty hard-core.

:hat: :notworthy: :hat:

I thought I was a bit odd taking by bottled homebrew with me, when staying in a holiday farmhouse. I feel much better now! :thumb:

And if you add a cool brewing bag and some frozen water bottles you can keep the keg cool on a hot day :D

It gets more bonkers by the minute!?!
Absolutely loving your work there!
I see it also has its very own yoga mat for a bit of 'down facing dog' too.....

That has genuinely made me smile on an otherwise uneventful and pretty dull day.

:D And it doesn't stop there. If you need more gas then go for a portable (ish) stand for your 6.5kg gas bottle :lol: :lol:

Knew that scrap BSA B40 sub frame would come in handy :D :D

Worth every bit of effort!

I've got a soda stream with an advanced adapter (with the screw valve on it) and I've also got a secondary reg.

Can I use the advanced adapter to act as a primary reg or am I going to end up blowing up the secondary reg?

Thanks!

I'm guessing the soda stream bottle is different to a S30 bottle? Any idea how to use an S30 for corny camping?

I cannot find any adapter after a Google.

You are probably better off switching to the soda stream bottles and a welding reg. ( make sure you have a working pressure relief valve if using a welding reg!!)

Last time I went camping in Cornwall, we got some very odd looks from other campers after clamping two hand pumps to a picnic bench to make an impromptu bar!

You can buy a replacement cornie lid with an S30 adapter built into it and you can get a ball lock disconnect with a small pressure gauge built in. You use the s30 like you would on any keg, but with the benefit of knowing how much you've actually topped it up by. It does mean you can't leave it unattended.

I did have a problem with my setup. I didn't close the reg off and drain the pressure before spinning the bottle off the regulator adapter. Queue big bang. I assume that's the reason. Everything seems fine after, I assume that's the reason it went a bit pear shaped.

That's exactly what I'm going to do. I can't see why it wouldn't work.

I use the Sodastream cylinders with an adaptor as a reserve. I get my pub-size cylinders from a cash and carry. When the cylinder runs out, the Sodastream stands-in until I can get to the cash and carry. Simples!

These cool bags are the nuts. Thanks for the link!

Kept 2 kegs cold for 12 plus hrs. The ice packs were still only semi defrosted the afternoon after.Image

Will these fit onto the regs from malt Miller? I have one sitting there from Xmas and a 10 litre corny that needs using
