Description

The easiest way to carbonate beer. This is a Cornelius keg lid with built-in carbonation stone! Move the lid from keg to keg to carbonate as needed. Allows you to force carbonate quickly using the attached .5 micron stone with the portability of being able to move the lid from keg to keg. No more hassles of trying to attach and unattach line from the "gas in" dip tube. Simply connect your gas quick disconnect to the included fitting on the lid and allow carbonation to begin. Sometimes also called a carbonater.  

We constructed the lid by welding on a 1/4" barb to the underside of the lid. To that we attached 2' of 1/4" ID tubing that attaches to a .5 micron carbonation stone on the other end. The flexible tubing, as opposed to rigid tubing, allows the lid inserted into any cornelius style keg. The top of the lid has a "gas in" ball lock body connect welded in place that works with the KEG710 and KEG730 gas quick disconnects.

How to use this product:
Beer must be stored cold 34–40°F
1. Preboil the stone for 2–3 minutes before using. This assures you that your stone is sterile and any residual oils have been boiled off.
2. Sanitize the whole keg lid before submersing into your keg filled with beer.
3. Set your PSI on your regulator to 3–4psi and attach your gas in fitting to the body connect on the lid. Leave keg at this pressure for 1 hour.
4. Raise your pressure 2PSI per hour until you reach 10–12psi. Leave it at 10–12psi for 24 hours. Pour a pint and test the carbonation. If you think your beer needs more CO2 leave for another 4–6 hours and have another pint.
5. Remove carbonation lid after carbonation level is satisfactory. Return original keg lid for long term storage.

I’d rather not roll the kegs on the floor to force carbonate them!

Will this work on smaller kegs? Is tubing connection barbed?
Ryan Bender on Mar 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes, the fitting is barbed. you can shorten it as much as you like. You could also just let the slack coil up in the keg, it will still work 100% the same.
Does this carbonating lid fit torpedo kegs?
MARK DANIELS on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this carbonating lid for the 2.5 gallon Torpedo keg that I bought two years back; so, yes, it does fit. It is much more efficient and worth the money.

had higher expectations
Did not really change the pour, in fact, its not as creamy as before. We tried adjusting PSI, no real difference.

How long did you carbonate with the lid?
June 12, 2018
Zach R Staff
If you just can’t wait to drink it and get it just right
I m pretty new to kegging but this seems to do a good job. After quick force carbing a batch I ended up over carbonating it and that was enough to make me want to buy this. Set the psi at the regular amount and just give it a couple days. Seems to work well so far.

No seal
Would give more stars but lid did not seal on my 5gal homebrew keg. Used hose on co2 inlet and worked.

Used it for nitro coffee and it did help getting the nitrogen to absorb better in solution.

great for carbing
This lid works on everything I want to carbonate. I have had about a dozen of them for a few years now and they hold up to constant use. We use them for Co-worker side projects here at Dogfish Head Brewery.

Makes carbonation even easier
It used to take 3 days and shaking the keg in order to carbonate my beer. There are posts on the internet that talk about shaking your keg and using high pressure to get 24 hour results but I have found that the CO2 just falls out of suspension. With this carb lid, it works just like a bright tank and I get good carbonation that "sticks" in 24 hours. Love this because I hated waiting for my beer.

Poorly manufactured
Purchased so I could carbonate overnight for bottling with a bottling wand the following day. Per other reviews, yes this does appear to be a cheap Chinese made lid. And just as Jay H commented, I didn't have a problem with the lid sealing, but the CO2 port leaked terribly. I used a generous amount of Teflon tape and still can't get a good seal. In fact, the port leak was so bad it's likely there was never enough psi in the keg for me to know if the lid was sealing or not. I can usually get to 80-90% of the carbonation level I'm looking for in 2-3 days so just going to write this purchase off as another "patience is a virtue" lesson. Another issue was that the tube that the stone is attached to is pretty rigid, and too long. It pushed against the bottom of the keg, and made removing the lid difficult.
Curious that there are so many good reviews...Guess that shows how inconsistent the manufacturing process is with this product.
Fantastic idea, (1 star for that) but unable to recommend.

Flat beer to full carbonation within about 12 hours
I've had this for years, and I've never had problems with the lid not sealing properly. If you follow the instructions you will have fully carbonated beer much faster than any other method that I've tried.
