Its my understanding no. Bad co2 has more to do with a contaminated tank, not the actual co2

You're assuming I didn't google this first? One benefit of this forum is that there is an elimination of noise and suspect advice (things a Google search will give you as it relates to brewing).

Now play nice and contribute or just ignore my constant posting! :)

I swap tanks at AirGas, and I'm pretty sure they have stickers on them that say food grade (I can't check right now though).

Whether or not it really means anything, I can't say.

So do tanks get contaminated over time?  One more thing to obsess about.......

That's why I didn't get anything through to the NHC!

Not as likely if you have check valve installed- preventing back flow of beer in regulator and tank.
