Potential Uses:

  • 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 – make sure your chose SS carb cap works with liquid ball lock QDs

Ball Lock Keg QD Jumper Post [Clean Draft Lines + Draft Line Cleaning Pump Build] – $5.99

BALL LOCK KEG QD JUMPER POST FOR CLEANING

via Brew Hardware.  This custom fitting is designed to allow you to connect two ball lock QDs together for the purpose of cleaning your draft lines more quickly and easily.


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

New and improved version of this fitting is much easier to connect than previous stock. We’ve moved the locking groove closer to the ends so the poppet in your QD doesn’t have to compress as much.

Maybe this is a strange idea but that’s how we roll. This custom made fitting allows you to connect a liquid or gas ball lock coupler/disconnect to both sides. It’s made so that the poppet is depressed to get full flow through both lines. Why?
If you’ve got a multiple faucet kegerator, you’re probably used to cleaning your lines one tap at a time. There are a lot of different ways to run cleaner through the lines whether it be pumping, or maybe even dispensing BLC or other cleaners through by pressurizing a spare keg. The BEST way to clean lines is to use a pump because cleaner in motion works better than static. Here’s how we do it. We use a chugger pump fed from a spare pot or cooler and the output of the pump goes into the first faucet (simply clamp the hose on to the nozzle). The serving line goes to this ball lock jumper fitting, then into the serving line of the next faucet. On the outside of this faucet you can either run it back into your cleaner reservoir or continue to daisy chain to as many faucets as you have. Please note that if you have the faucet style where the piston sticks out of the front of the faucet, you can’t do this because it will leak at that spot.

The beauty of this method is that you don’t have to take your disconnects off the lines or take them apart for cleaning. The cleaner goes through everything. You can also use it with only one QD attached which would then just hold the poppet open for you.

This item is JUST the doubled ended jumper post fitting with two included ORINGS as seen in the picture (may be red or black). We only show the ball lock QD in the second picture to show application at a glance.”


HBF Reader [8 Ways to Connect with HBF] Josh Says: “I use two of these, along with my Mark II Keg Washer, and silicone tubing between my Perlick faucets, to make a loop through all three of my taps in order to recirculate BLC for a good 30 – 60 minutes. Works great!”

Availability of these is touch and go.  Brew Hardware gets a supply in stock and then they sell our in relatively short order.  This is usually followed by a long period of unavailability.  As of this posting, they’re back in stock and marked down to $5.99  Shipping is a Flat $7.99 with a $150 order or free with a $299 order.  Check product page for current availability.

MoreBeer’s Plastic Coated Cleaning Brush for PET Carboys – $3.99, Limited Availability

Carboy Cleaning Brush for PET Carboys CE42

Carboy Cleaning Brush for PET Carboys via MoreBeer

More Info

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

This L-shaped brush is the perfect tool for scrubbing every inch on the inside of carboys, and thanks to the plastic coating, they’re also safe to use with plastic fermenters and PET carboys. Normal carboy brushes like our CE40 are great for cleaning glass carboys, but can be a risky choice for using on plastic. The metal rod where the bristles attach can scratch plastic, creating hide outs for bacteria. You won’t have those worries with this carboy brush!

Bristles made from Food Grade nylon
Long enough to reach deep inside large carboys
L-shaped bend allows you to easily scrub off leftover krausen residue
Height from end of handle to 90° bend – 21.5″
Brush section with bristles is 8.5″ long
Bristles are 2.75″ in diameter
Temperature rated to 140°F (60°C)
