Only answered the adapter question. As for how long Sodastream cylinders last …Hi, how long do sodastream cylinders last (ish) with a corny keg?
Where do you buy the adaptors?
Thanks for the insight here, i have two kegs so i'm planning on pressure fermenting in one and then closed transferring to the other and just using the sodastream for dispensing (plus the transfer).Oooo … the forum elves have been busy in this thread and cut it adrift from the 6 year old thread.

In my pocket is a piece of string. How long is it?
One cylinder will last a year if maintaining a handpump, maybe two if you are a very moderate drinker. If serving up highly carbonated lagers, a cylinder might only last for 2 or 3 20L kegs. And if you insist on force carbonating beer rather than letting the yeast do the job for free, you'll use a cylinder in no time. A "pub cylinder" (6.35kg) holds about 15x a Sodastream cylinder. There is 425gms of CO2 in a new Sodastream cylinder: CO2 is sold by weight because it is liquid and not a compressed gas like many other gases sold in cylinders. All CO2 is sold at the same pressure, whether a tiny "capsule" or a tanker because that is the pressure it has to be.
You should have no trouble getting just about any "adapter" with a Web search (or perhaps limit it to an eBay search?). But you do need to be very specific about what you want. 1/4" MFL is good (don't worry about whether it is male, it would be FFL if female - and this is an American thread designation) … but '1/4" flared brass connector'? That isn't providing useful information. This bit needs a bit of expanding, like what's it connecting to? And for good measure, from?I can't find a 1/4" MFL male to 1/4" flared brass connector , anyone ever bought one and where?
