CO2 Refills

In PA and perhaps other areas, CO2 tanks have to be inspected for condition and pressure-worthiness every five years. The date of manufacture, or the last inspection date, is on the crown of the tank.

My 5# tank has never been inspected as I have only had it since 2003. So lo and behold on trying to get it refilled, I discovered it needed an inspection which required it be sent off-prem from Beer Solutions. :O(

Should have it for the weekend though! :O)

It turns out that each inspection date is engraved anew into the crown of the tank.
