The set and forget. Recommend. Simply use a chart or tool and input the beer temperature and desired volume of CO2. Adjust your regulator to the PSI setting it tells you to and wait. This gives your beer time to mature and the CO2 will stop carbonating once it reaches an equilibrium. This method places a layer of CO2 on top of your beverage, as the beverage absorbs the CO2 carbonation slowly takes region. Fool proof however takes just a few weeks for most styles.
The shake, rattle and roll. Not advised. Crank your gas up. Put the keg on it’s side and roll it round. This pushes colossal bubbles of CO2 into contact with more surface enviornment very aggressively. Problem is, you do not know how lots CO2 you are forcing in and may overshoot your target volume. It can also leave an undesired "green" or "carbonic chunk" taste.
Carbonation lid. Recommended. By installing this lid with stone connected you can achieve a extremely fast carbonation time. Just like the set and forget method regulate your beer temperature and regulator to the desired settings.This method works fast since the stone breaks the CO2 up and injects tiny bubbles with huge quantities of surface enviornment without delay into your beer. Instead of making a blanket on top of it like the set and forget method. It will carbonate a five gallon keg overnight.
For easiest use:
CO2 absorbs greater when cold 34-40°F
Boil your stone for a couple of minutes earlier than use. Carbonation stones are porous
Make bound you follow appropriate sanitation techniques as all the time.
Most beer will carbonate overnight. Results will vary depending on beer styles.
Experiment with settings to find what suits you finest.
After your beer is carbonated replace the carbonation lid with a typical lid. Clean and store carbonation lid.
