Thx pal..
Just remembered that that party picnic style was a load of crap!

Why not..with the dosh I'm going to spend might do it reet!
That's another project once the fridge get sorted a fridge for holding the corni's...

I've bought the corni kit!
But I'll work out what to do next!...
I.e a better tap...where to buy co2...(thinking second hand was more hassle that owt else!!)
Started looking at force carbonation..now looking at getting the right length of beer line..balancing I think it's said?
It will be a slow process! Coz I don't want to jump in...
TBH if I get the kit set up...(with the party tap) it's a start Anyways!
I mentioned mounting a tap on a fridge eventually...that means a fridge would be a sole fridge for cooling the corni(s) unless I've got no beers/lager fermenting...
A lot to think of with the ferm fridge thread tbh!
Any suggestions and tip I'll be apriciated...coz you know that you'll know obvious things that my tiny brain hasn't thought about!! I don't mind I'll learn and take it slow!! Better to safe n sorry!!
Yes for all I've had a set up before and used co2 in the corni kegs and co2 ingestion for tropical fish years ago...due to faded memories I'm still looking at safely with the tank and regulator etc.
Hence starting slow at each phase and learning the next one...
All good skills...

Hi!
Try here for CO2:
http://www.adamsgas.co.uk/product-category/home-bar/

Looks like £55 deposit on first bottle then about £19 to fill and refill. I suppose there'll be shipping on top of that!

I'm getting mine in Donny for £65, filled, then £20 refill.

There was a post saying Elderberry Home Brew Centre did gas in 2013 - might be worth a phone call.

You dont need a keg fridge, however it will make life easier,
But if you have a spot that you can maintain a constant cool temp, it can be done. I manage most of the year OK needing a shelf chiller for the summer months.
It does involve a bit more active management of the co2 pressure and the natural level of condition can swing somewhat with the seasons meaning i can serve some fizzy bitters mid winter.
You can also use a bit more co2 as its always wise to vent a keg prior to pouring from it to counter any condition loss and overpressurisation of the keg.

shelf chillers cant be enclosed without overheating and can be quite noisy in a quiet home, so if your pockets are deep you could look at a flash chiller like the pygmys http://www.lindr.cz/products/pygmy-25k These connect to a keg and are ready to serve chilled beer at the flick of a switch..

even with a party tap its a good idea to insert a length of restricting 3/16" microline before the tap if you intent to keep kegs at condition maintaining levels of pressure. without it you will need to reduce the keg pressure to nominal to serve foam free..
