“The post on this unique carbonation cap has been machined ,so it fit BOTH the liquid and gas ball lock disconnects.”

 

Applications:

  • 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.
  • Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  I have developed two draft line cleaning projects using similar SS Caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion

One of the questions that arises on these type of carb caps, is… does it work with both liquid and gas posts?  Some models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal.  I’m happy to report that the one I received did indeed work with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check the product description for current specs.

Check out my Hands on Review of this great carb cap.

Announcing: Cannular Pro + CROWLER Seamer + related hands on review

Cannular Pro Bench Top Can & Crowler Seamer CAN115

Cannular Pro Bench Top Can & Crowler Seamer via MoreBeer

More Info

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

Everything you need to start seaming 32 oz Crowlers with the Cannular Pro can seamer. This kit includes the Cannular Pro Semi-Auto Canning Machine, 110V Power Supply, Splash Guard Accessory, and Crowler Chuck Adapter. The Cannular Pro is a semi-automatic can seamer that is easy to use, reliable, and beautifully simple.

Please note: the Cannular comes ready for sealing 12 oz and 16 oz cans as standard. The Crowler Chuck Adapter must be installed before seaming 32 oz Crowlers (Ball 300 can/end).

Whether you’re a brewery looking to offer canned beer to go or a homebrewer wanting to keep your creations fresh and fully protected from light, the Cannular is the answer. This bench top unit is one of the most compact and easy to use can seamers you’ll find. The Cannular only requires one person to operate, and each can takes roughly 3 seconds to seam. With a two-person team, one filling and one seaming, the Cannular becomes a suitable option for nano breweries doing small canning production runs.

The Cannular Pro’s table spacer is specially designed to work with all standard 202 cans, including the industry favorite 16 oz (473ml) and 12 oz (355 ml) cans, as well as our 500ml (16.9 oz) and 330ml (11.2 oz) Can Fresh Aluminum Cans. Unlike the manual model that requires a secondary table spacer for use with 330ml cans, the Pro model features an adjustable platform, allowing you to raise or lower the table spacer depending on what size can you’re seaming. It is necessary to adjust the table height to ensure you have the appropriate amount of pressure applied when the can lift is raised.

Operation:
The beauty of the Cannular lies in how truly simple it is to operate, and the semi-automatic pro model makes canning beer even easier. With only three points of operation, it only takes a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the machine. The seaming process is as follows:

Place lid atop the can and place the can on the table spacer
Turn the platform lever clockwise to raise the can to the seamer
Press the seaming operation button then wait for the can to stop spinning
Turn the platform lever counterclockwise to lower the can
That’s all there is to it!

Construction:
The Cannular was designed to be compact, durable, and safe to operate in a wet environment. The platform assembly is made from 304 grade stainless steel, so no matter how messy your canning gets, there’s no need to worry about rusting or degradation. The body of the unit is made from hammered sheet metal and fastened together with stainless steel screws. Rubber feet help keep the unit from slipping and sliding while in use. In addition, the Cannular features built-in brackets near the feet so you have the option to mount the machine to your counter or benchtop. The Cannular runs off of 24V DC power via the Anderson socket located on the back. This lower voltage was chosen specifically to make the unit as safe to use in a wet environment as possible.

Kit Includes:

  • Cannular Pro Can Seamer
  • 110V Power Supply
  • Splash Guard
  • Crowler Chuck Adapter

Cannular Pro Specifications:

  • Power: 250W 24V DC
  • Rated Speed: 3300 RPM
  • Gearbox Ratio: 9.8 : 1
  • Dimensions: 16″ L x 9.5″ W x 21″ H
  • Weight: 40 lbs

Please note: When you receive your cannular the rollers have been set and tested at the factory. They should not need adjustment for 100,000 cans. The table, however, comes unadjusted and getting it set up correctly is very important to getting a proper seal. Cannular’s test show that a .4mm (.015″) actual overlap is all that is needed to seal to 90 PSI. The proper table tension takes a little practice and expect to waste a few cans getting it dialed in. Once you learn the proper tension re-adjusting it is very quick and easy. You want the tension to be tight but not so tight as to dent the can. Use cans at your fill height with water for proper tension adjustment.

250 x Brewer’s Best Conditioning Carbonating Tablets – $8.89 + free prime ship

Brewer's Best Conditioning Tablets 250 Count

Brewer’s Best Conditioning Tablets 250 Count (approximate)

More Info

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

  • 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.

Hands on Review: Blichmann Engineering Beer Gun

Thank you to HBF Contributor Aaron N for this hands on review!  Aaron is an advanced brewer, long time reader and a serial tipster!

Blichmann BeerGun v2

After I quickly realized the benefits of kegging, I was happy to forgo the bottling routine and looked forward to never cleaning, sanitizing, and filling 53 twelve-ounce bottles with caps again. Then I decided I would throw my hat into the ring of homebrew competitions. Back to the bottling world.

The seats are closer together than the standard 45/90 seat trees, when used with wide bottles such as wine bottles, the bottle fit closer to one another and rest on top of the lower bottles. Due to the handle you cannot set a sanitizer injector on top.
