Default Co2 Gas

I know this is a stupid question but i never did it yet. To refill a 10lb bottle of Co2 is that that same co2 that you can get to fill up paintball guns. I know its NOT keg Co2. whatgrade is it?

It is actually the same CO2 one uses for beer.


Generally you will only find two grades available.

One is 99.9% pure and the other is 99.99% pure. That extra 9 will normally triple the cost at a minimum.

Everyone that uses their own money uses the 99.9% CO2.

CO2 is sufficiently different from nitrogen or oxygen or hydrocarbon gases in its properties that getting almost pure CO2 isn't a big deal. So, my CO2 supplier, a fire extinguisher place, only has the one grade, and another place I checked out also had only one grade.
