250 x Brewer’s Best Conditioning Carbonating Tablets – $6.95

Brewer's Best Conditioning Tablets 250 Count

Brewer’s Best Conditioning Tablets 250 Count (approximate)


  • Brewer’s best conditioning tablets
  • Add 3 to 5 tablets per 12 oz bottle
  • 250 count

This unique priming sugar is in tablet format and is made from dextrose, dry malt extract, and heading powder. To use, add 3 to 5 tablets per 12 oz. bottle depending on desired carbonation level, and condition for 1 week. Each 4.5 ounce pack contains approximately 250 tablets.


These take the place of traditional priming sugar.  Carbonation tabs are also handy if you keg, but still want to naturally carbonate a few bottled beers.  In that scenario, you would keg the majority of your beer and bottle portion of the batch adding these to each bottle so that you can skip a bottling bucket and traditional priming sugar.

PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.

Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.

Inline Regulator [control each keg separately] – $6.99 via William’s Brewing

william's brewing inline regulatorKeg King Inline Regulator via William’s Brewing.  About: “This in line regulator features 1/4″ hose barbs, and can be adjusted with a flat head screwdriver. It can reduce incoming pressure from 150 PSI to 1 PSI. It is very handy to use when you want to use a single output C02 regulator in a draft system, but supply different kegs with different dispensing pressures. 4.75″ long with included brass hose barbs installed.”

This is basically an inline secondary regulator.  You still need a primary regulator attached to your CO2 tank.  The idea is, you set the primary to the highest pressure you will use (without exceeding specifications of any component of your system) and then use these regulators inline (one per line) to fine tune pressure and carbonation [See: Balancing Your Draft System].  As an example, you could set your primary to 25 PSI for faster force carbonation and set each line to a different pressure based on desired carbonation level.

I think this is brilliant, especially at the current price of $6.99.  We featured these back in September of 2017 and they sold out in relatively short order.  After a long wait, they are finally available again, at least as of this posting.  Check site for current price and availability.

IN LINE REGULATOR

The inline regulator is adjusted by a screwdriver and does not have pressure markings or a gauge.  You could use something like this inline gauge, manually check pressures with something like this keg pressure tester, rig up something with a t-fitting or (my least favorite) use trial and error.

Brand New Universal Replacement Keg Lid [Ball Lock & Pin Lock]

Beverage Factory BLL-N-AUS Replacement Lid for Home brew Keg

Beverage Factory BLL-N-AUS Replacement Lid for Home brew Keg


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Universal replacement lid for home brew/ soda kegs
  • 1 inch
  • Dimensions: 3 3/4″ x 4 3/8″ (with gasket)

This is a universal replacement lid for home brew/soda kegs. BRAND new lid comes with closure O-Ring pressure release Valve with sturdy 1 inch metal ring to relieve pressure out of your keg.


One difference between Pin Lock and Ball Lock kegs is the type of lids that come with each.  Ball Locks, generally, have a manual PRV valve, while Pin Locks do not.  Ball Lock style lids are, in my opinion, superior because the manual PRV allows you to easily vent your keg as needed.  The good news is that, for standard kegs, the lids are the same size and can be interchanged.  That means you can use a Ball Lock style lid in a Pin Lock Keg.  See: What’s the Difference Between Ball Lock Kegs and Pin Lock Kegs?
