Product Description

Here's a nifty little device thought up by a couple home brewers and made in the USA. The device will help you carbonate beer, wine, homemade soda, health drinks and even water to your desired fizziness. With the Caracal you can easily perfect any beverage you desire. The Caracal screws to the top of any standard USA 38 mm 500 ml, 1L or 2 Liter PET plastic soda bottle. Squeeze the air out then you attach your Cornelius soda keg ball lock and CO2 rig and give it a shot and shake. You can actually watch the CO2 being absorbed by the liquid.

I think I have carbonated about 1000 liters of water using three of these caps, and they are still working with no trouble. They are very solidly made. Following are a few things I learned that will help achieve better results (i.e., stronger carbonation). (1) Start with refrigerated water because carbon dioxide dissolves better in water at lower temperatures. (2) Fill the bottle leaving a an inch or two of empty space at the top so that you can better shake the bottle. (3) After screwing on the carbonater top, push the valve down with your finger and squeeze the air out of the bottle. When you connect the carbon dioxide tank, the bottle will expand (with a bit of a pop), and all the air space will be filled with carbon dioxide. (4) Shake the bottle for about 45 seconds. You don't have to do it vigorously; just keep the water and gas mixing. (5) Let the bottle sit for at least two minutes before removing the cap. That will let micro-bubbles absorb so you won't lose too much gas when you remove the top. I like to carbonate at least three bottles in a row, using three carbonater caps. That way the the first bottle is ready to be opened by the time I've carbonated the third bottle.

So I don't use The Carbonater for beer like most people probably do. I've rigged up my own carbonation station at home. With the help of this product, I can carbonate any liquid in a 2-liter bottle. I've also used it on the Coke 1.25 lt bottles as well with good results. Product came with good instructions and seems very durable, this isn't a soft cheap plastic. I'll be buying a couple more, as the directions indicate, it's good to leave the cap on overnight or even longer to help the co2 absorption. That's no lie, to me, the soda tastes much better after a couple days of sitting in the fridge before consumption.

The product is also great for rejuvenating flat soda. To be honest, I didn't think I'd ever use this product for that purpose, but I have on a few occasions and it's great to not have to just throw flat soda away.

A little information about my setup: 5 lb co2 tank, regulator set to 40 psi with a hose going to a quick connect for The Carbonater. I recycle used 2-lt bottles and use cold filtered water from my refrigerator. Generally, I use SodaStream syrup (diet cola) to make my sodas, but I've also had good results with Crystal Light and store brand powder mixes.

If you have made the investment to own a co2 tank and regulator for homebrewing (or some other purpose) then this product is a fantastic little gadget that gives you a lot of versatility.

The cap screws on to almost any soda bottle, including 16 oz, 22 oz, 1 quart, and 2 liter bottles. You fill your bottle with cold liquid, leaving a half inch or so, then squeeze the air out, then screw the cap on very, very tight.

Then you put your ball lock gas in quick connect onto to it and turn on the gas. Apply about 30-35 lbs of gas and gently shake the bottle so the gas dissolves in solution. When the gas stops going into solution you have just carbonated the liquid. Its that easy. Want to make home made ginger soda and carbonate instead of using yeast, no problem, want to make club soda, carbonate apple juice, wine, whatever. Instant sparking beverage.

You can leave the cap on the bottle until you are ready to drink the beverage.

Its made out of very sturdy plastic with a spring inside just like the ball lock on the corny keg.

Great product.

This is the second cap I bought. The last one worked for nearly 2 years. I built a simple system to make sparkling beverages, using a CO2 10 liter Keg, a hose with a connector that fits this "Carbonator" cap. Simply screw this cap on a plastic water bottle (suitable for sparkling water), fill it with your own filtered chilled water and pressurize it with CO2. You need to shake because under the pressure the carbon dioxide dissolves. Simply disconnect and leave it with this cap in the refrigerator until you open,once open you can replace it with a normal cap. Note: you can sparkle almost anything. Favorites mix of 50:50, water and apple juice or other fruit juices. I played a trick on one of my friends, told him that he is drinking expensive Champagne, but I carbonated a cheap white wine. (note the cap will not fit on a champagne bottle, so you need to bring glasses..).
I sparkled hundreds of bottles of 1/2L bottles with this 10L keg, which lasted now over 2 years. Refill is cheap. I use CO2 gas for beverages, which is used in bars and restaurant for beer and soda beverage systems. The cap is made out of plastic and will eventually wear out and cannot keep the pressure. I was looking for alternatives but I couldn't find any. This solution is still the best and cheapest. No need to buy these expensive soda makers.

I keep thinking that this company needs a lesson in economies of scale. If the price was dropped to 5-7 dollars a piece I would probably have 10 of these. As it stands I only own 2 and I am not sure if I plan to buy more as they are way too costly. It is making me consider making my own system. I've researched several ways to make my own using various types of connectors like tire stem systems, pneumatic tool quick connect, et cetera. Once the patent expires they are doomed.
