    I just got my second CO2 FE from www.firesupermarket.co.uk. The first one went from 55 bar to 50 bar in about eight weeks. Then I fitted a needle valve and apparently I had a leak so it went from 50 bar to 0 bar in just over a week. :( and I had to get another FE. I also got some CO2 tubing from AE as the old soft tubing from my previous Nutrafin yeast setup couldn't cope with the pressure. I now have a non-leaking CO2 setup and hopefully BBA won't take over the tank as it did with my inconsistent yeast based one. I'm now left with a spare CO2 cylinder and have been trying to find a place that would refill it for less than £25. All the webpages I look at say that it would be cheaper to buy a new one (gotta love London), but people here (I know, they're northerners) claim they can get a refill for £15. Does anyone know of a place?

    BTW: I do not have a car, so it has to be accessible through public transport (I can't drink beer on the tube but I can bring a pressurised cylinder that would take the head off a bloke if it broke? - Thank you Boris. We all love you...)

    Try Wholesale Tropicals in Bethnal Green, they do refills but you have to wait a week for it, don't know about prices.

    this is genius - had no idea you could use a pub CO2 cylinder. much better value than even fire extinguishers....

    Does the regulator from a FE fit neatly onto these bottles? assume it's the same?
