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 carb 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.

Can this be left in the keg, for the keg duration, with CO2 attached to it, or should it be removed and replaced with a 'regular' lid when the keg is carbonated?
James M. White on Sep 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just use it for the first three day, then purge and cap so I can use it on the next keg.
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.

A Great Tool
From one who was carbonating with reserved wort, this works so great that I will never go back to that again. Just one day, doesn't use a lot of co2, and you can control the carbonation level. Highly recommend.

works as advertised
My only complaint is the hose is kinda stiff with a curve to it... had to work at it to get it straight enough, but once it is broken in, it is fine. The quality of weld and etc are all very good. Sometimes it takes longer than 24 hours to get a good carbonation, but it depends on the beer and it is very forgiving. You figure it out and make adjustments.

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.
