The Carbonator "Draft to Go"
The Carbonator is a patented screw-on cap with an integrated "Pepsi-Style" ball lock fitting. Designed to fit most one and two liter soda or P.E.T bottles, the Carbonator provides a highly effective method to add and maintain carbonation in beverages for extended periods of time. Made of a special high strength plastic known only to Liquid Bread, the Carbonator can provide years of trouble free service.
The Carbonator provides an easy way of carbonating or preserving a carbonated beverage. All you need is a CO2 system, the Carbonator, and an empty plastic soda bottle (P.E.T. bottle).
The Carbonator can be used either to maintain carbonation in already carbonated beverages or to force-carbonate still beverages. This means when a 2-liter bottle of soda goes flat, you can put the fizz back into it. You can make your own flavored water for less or carbonate fruit juices or powdered drinks!
For the home brewer, the Carbonator can be especially valuable. The use of two liter P.E.T. bottles can be a highly effective bottling method that can save time and add convenience. Want to keg but don't have the refrigerator space? Use the Carbonator! Want to force carbonate that new beer for the tasting tonight? Use the Carbonator! Want to take a sample of your finest brew to the tasting without taking a whole keg? Use the Carbonator. Tired of dragging a 5-gallon soda keg and everything else you need to a party or picnic, then home again? Use the Carbonator! All you need to tote are a couple of 2-liter bottles. After you're finished, the Carbonator fits in your pocket.
The Carbonator fits on a standard 2 liter plastic soda bottle in place of the original cap. It uses a standard ball lock keg post fitting (the kind found on Pepsi style soda kegs). This allows for the purging of air, after gently filling from your tap, then injecting up to 30 psi (max), giving you a 100% CO2 head-space. This method gives you a shelf life similar to the beer remaining in your keg.
To simply maintain carbonation in an already carbonated product, set your pressure at between 5 and 10 psi. To carbonate an uncarbonated beverage, set for 30 psi.
