Anyone used gas bottle tops?

Postby NickW » Fri Mar 10, 2017 07:39

Hi all

I'm just about to start the lager phase of a helles. I was intending on bottle conditioning (5 Bottles or so) after the lagering.

I can across these: https://m.tr.aliexpress.com/s/item/3275 ... d#autostay

Had anyone used them? If so, whats your experience with them? I have coopers PET bottles. Are these ok?

How do you go about using them for quick force carbing?

I have five that I use, they are useful for bottling small amounts, line cleaning, using with beer engines (allows you to empty out the beer in the line and easily flush the line with water/sanitiser) and taking any excess after filling a keg to fill a 2L sparkling water bottle(s).

I originally purchased two of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142210453706? ... EBIDX%3AIT Unfortunately they were too small to fit a standard bottle size which was a pain in the arsenal

so I have just ordered two of these instead and fingers crossed they will fit http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302193200864? ... EBIDX%3AIT

I've got one but lost interest as I couldn't get it to work properly. Now I've seen the video showing how it should be done I'm a happy boy. Thanks

This is what I made using these. Great for filling plastic bottles and much better than my Blichmann Beer Gun at a fraction of the price. The Malt Miller sells them.

Here you are.

Edit. You could also use this and it is nearer to home for you.
