    No contest, only downside to cornies is the cost or issues sourcing Co2 depending where you live and decent regulator. Pressure barrels will work ok and are a bit more portable, downside to them (for me) is, prone to leak from the cap, the valve and the outlet, afaik quite a few folk have had them split due to excess pressure, as there white HDPE they can't be left in sunlight for any length of time without something starting to grow inside them.

    Totally agree. Pressure barrels suck for all these reasons. Not worth it. Go bottles or proper corny keg setup.

    I bought 10 full Sodastream bottles cheap as chips because they don't wanted to post them. Will sell half of them when they are empty. Refill is 12.-

    There is a guy on eBay who sells empty bottles and refills quite a bit cheaper than SodaStream

    Went into Range today and asked if they exchanged and was told yes but as my current cylinder isn't empty yet couldn't test it. Their website says OOS.

    I'm sure that Argos price has gone up considerably since I used them a few years ago.
