As everyone else said, get a Corny, and a cheap fridge off gumtree, I still use a soda stream co2 tank and mini regulator, only for space issues and it's ideal, carbonator cap and beer tap dissconect are all you need to get going

You mean 10 kg??? For the first go, you'll waste it. Things will leak, you'll use it on purging items you don't need to purge. But you'll soon grasp the concept.
Brew on brother. The the only thing that between you and good beer is your mouth! (Sorry, TM)

That's who I use,you have to write off the £50 cost of the bottle first time but at £10 an exchange and delivered to your door at no extra cost its a brilliant service

+1 on wasting your first tank (and the second in my case) through leaks etc....
On my third tank now and I made sure ALL joints etc are gas tight.
Good move getting it though...

Don't know where you are exactly but the Calor Gas place in Grimsby does food grade CO2.
