After a short period of uncertainty regarding their future, we are please to announce that Widget World Cylinders, used by many homebrewers to carbonate their Cornelius kegs, are now back on the market. The original manufacturers sold the company durign the summer and shortly afterwards, Youngs ceased to be the main UK stockist for the homebrew trade. It has now been announced that Ritchies will become the UK stockist and distributor with immediate effect.
At present, only the CO2 bottles will be generally available, though discussions are apparantly ongoing regarding the supply of the N2/CO2 cylinders. The So-dash handle and cylinder stand will also shortly be available from Ritchies.
The new recommended retail price for these will be increasing to £21.50 for new cylinders and £13.35 for refills so we will unfortunately have to increase our prices once our exisiting stock has run out.
