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.

to carb the kegs better.
Corey M on Sep 25, 2020
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.
Can I use this to make soda in my keg? And just leave on with gas attached and outlet on also?
Nathan Ford on Dec 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can.
Agitation really helps for the CO2 to dissolve into liquid.
I would not leave on as the CO2 levels will get high for your soda.
Once carbonate to your desired CO2 level, turn off gas, Use gas only to dispense.
Hope this helps.
What is the wetting pressure of the 0.5 micron stone?
Paul Gillespie on Feb 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There may be some slight variation with different regulators, temps, etc. but I checked mine in a bucket of water and found it to be 6 psi.
Does this carbonating lid fit torpedo kegs?
MARK DANIELS on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe it should work for a torpedo. From what I understand a torpedo uses a standard corny style lid.

Works well, but needs improvement.
All in all this carbonating lid works well. I wish the tube was clear instead of black so I could see that's it's clean and dry for storage. Also wish the tube would screw off the lid like it screws apart from the aerator. For the price it shouldn't lack these features.

Carbonating Keg Lid
Have been kegging my beer for 10 years and going between natural CO2 carbonation by waiting about 7 days to force carbonation by agitation. Neither method was totally satisfactory for initial beer draws. After using the carbonating keg lid, I have to ask myself why I didn't buy this before. Followed the included instructions and it worked like a champ. A relatively inexpensive and seemingly foolproof way to force carbonate my beer. Very happy with the way it works. The only minor complaint was having to work a little bit to get the plastic tube straight before inserting it into the keg.

Works well
Finally pulled the trigger on the carb lid after years of carbing my kegs by hooking the gas up to the "out" side of the keg and increasing the pressure to 30-40 psi for 24 hours. My old method worked fine, but the carbonation was never "just right" and it always took days, or even weeks at serving pressure to get the beer pouring like I wanted it. I have used the new carb lid to carbonate three kegs, and so far I am very happy with the results. Much better results that my previous method. Highly recommended.!

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.
