Based on my experience today I STRONGLY recommend thorough internal cleaning of this or any other non "food grade" paintball tank prior to use with SodaStream or other food use CO application (brewing, etc). I'm not recommending this tank be used other than intended, just sharing my experience.
After reading various reviews (and CO2Doctor site stuff), I opened mine to clean prior to use for SodaStream for cleaning. I used a large pipe wrench to hold the bottle while removing the valve - it's retained with thread locking compound. The tank indeed smelled terrible, I think the biggest culprit is the blue threadlocker compound itself. I used alcohol, a toothbrush with shortened bristles and a safety pin to clean thread locker completely off valve AND internal tank treads, then cleaned tank with alcohol several times (first dump had some junk in it) then soap and hot water. Smells and looks clean now. This process takes a while but I wouldn't use for food applications without doing this first. CO2Doctor has food grade tanks which go through a major cleaning process but they only sell 12 oz and I wanted the larger tank for my new FountainJet dispenser (holds larger SodaStream bottles). My adapter hasn't shown up yet but it looks like there will be just enough room for this 24 oz tank. Local paintball shop says refills are three bucks, tank weighs 1lb 2.7 oz empty so I'll see how much a fill gives me.
The tank seems fine quality wise, the hydro inspection is current (good for 5 years). There is a statement about california cancer causing agents on the bottle which I believe refers to the paint, but possibly the thread locking compound. I'm not concerned about this. I would purchase for same purpose again.
This pressurized CO2 tank must be hydrostatic-tested to 3000 psi (which is 5/3 of its operating pressure of 1800 psi) at a proper testing facility after 5 years and every 5 years thereafter per DOT regulations to ensure that it capable of withstanding working pressure without failure. I bought mine in August 2014, The "born date" stamped on my tank is May 2014, so Amazon has a fairly quick turnaround. Please note that it is illegal (and foolhardy) to fill a tank past its hydrotest date without the test. This tank (as opposed to carbon fiber tanks) has no life limit, which means that it may be refilled after it passes each of its 5 year tests.
I bought my tank with a Sodastream CO2 Adapter for use with the Sodastream beverage carbonation system, and not for paintball use, so the tank weight or bulk was of no concern. If you are using the tank for paintball use, consider a smaller (and hence lighter) tank. For paintball use, a 24 oz tank would give about 1500 shots.
Fires off, the tank is very high quality and perfect for it's intended use.
I bought one of these with the intention of removing the valve, cleaning the tank, and using an adapter for my SodaStream. There are oils and metal flakes in almost every machined item, SO THIS TANK SHOULD BE CLEANED. I read another review about removing the regulator with a pipe wrench. I spend 6 hours with a vice, a monkey-wrench, a oil filter remover, and a hammer. I COULD NOT GET THE REGULATOR OFF. I ended up just marring everything. The thread locker they use in this is ridiculous. Good lucky trying to torque it off.
Get a tank from C02 Doctor. You will spend a little bit more money, but the tanks are pre-cleaned and washed up to beverage grade. I spent 35 dollars shipped to have a 24oz shipped to my door. Giving me some piece of mind that what I am drinking is safe. It is not the C02 grade you need to worry about, you need to worry about the prodcedures used to make a typical tank (which include toxic oils).
