Description

No one likes waiting, and the QuickCarb keg carbonator by Blichmann Engineering is the way to eliminate the wait from carbonating your homebrew.  This high-pressure co2-injection system from Blichmann Engineering™ will carbonate a keg in 30 minutes, with no chance of over carbonating your beer.  All connectors are included, and the unit hangs from the front of your keg.

Use is simple,  just sanitize the unit using the built in pump, and connect hoses to your Keg and CO2 system.  Turn on the gas, plug in the unit, and 30-40 minutes later, your beer will be perfectly carbonated.  Cleanup is just as easy, as you can run cleaner and sanitizer through the system using the pump as well.

NEED TO CARB QUICK

Looking to quickly set the correct carbonation level.

My first time buying a Blicchmann product and hope it’s cuts my carbonation time in half. And see if it’s a quality company.

Nice
I am still waiting for my lager to finish up to use this. I was impressed with how it showed up. In its own little case. I was impressed with how everything was inside. I can't wait to use this. Only have a few more weeks left to keg.

Great piece of gear.
This is a pretty good piece of brew gear once you get the hang of it. I find that it needs a slightly longer time (1 hour) and a few extra psi to get the carbonation right, otherwise it seems a bit low (flat). It's really great for it's purpose.

Great way to carbonate
I have a small brewery ~100 bbl/yr and we previously krausened the sixtels and 1/2 barrels from the pilot system which is very hit or miss. Been using this for the past 4 months and it works great on both ball lock and sanke kegs. Cleanup is easy - just finish with StarSan and it will be ready to go for the next round. I appreciate the large storage case as it has plenty of room for the extra sanke fittings so they can all be in the same place. As previously stated, you do need to watch the clamps at the pump but I haven't lost any beer, just small drips. overall this was a good investment that works better than any alternative I've tried.

Works After You Plug All The Leaks
Highly recommend using this with water first instead of your next prized batch of home brew.

Three of my fittings leaked where the hoses go into the barbs - both plastic barbs and metal barbs; didn't matter if they had thumb screw hose clamps or factory crimp hose clamps as securing mechanism. The only thing that stopped the leaking were multiple small tie wraps after removing original clamps.

Two out of the three large o rings inside the screw-on fittings (the ones with the with rubber grips) slow leaked regardless of how tight or loose they were set. Replacing those o rings with same sized flat washers stopped those leaks.

Lastly, Blichmann should include the 1/4" male x 1/4" male flare fitting that goes into your CO2 regulator.

One additional piece of advice: always release all pressure from keg before turning on the motor. Turn on the CO2 last, once the motor gets going and is pumping liquid back into the keg.

In summary, all the main parts like air stone and liquid pump are high quality and should last a long time. The Blichmann "engineer" in charge of making this thing water tight should be fired.

My most favorite gadget ever!
This thing really saves time getting beer ready to drink and is super easy to clean and sanitize. There are a few things to watch out for however. First, it tends to leak at the pump so make sure that your clamps are as tight as possible and double check for leaks before walking away. The next version of this product really does need a better solution for connecting hoses to the pump, but I don't care, I love this thing! Second, the system hangs on the keg so I try to run it in my kegerator to keep the beer at a steady temperature which gives much more consistent results.

The bottom line is that after cold crashing for a few days, I can carbonate to a specific level and be ready to bottle fill or serve on tap within an hour. Obviously, if you have sediment in your keg it will be stirred up so realistically I usually wait a day to allow it to clear again before serving it to others. If I'm feeling fancy, I filter the beer first if I have an extra clean keg.

Game Changer!
Just used the quick carb for the first time, and after 60 minutes my pumpkin ale poured at perfect carb level... A game changer in that it makes "set it and forget it" a simple hour process rather than a week!

cool product
it works very well....... but here it is. many of the factory clamps leak, and pretty bad.
once you replace all the clamps with your own, it works perfect, I'm normally not for gadgets but this one works well and is easy to clean.
