The Brewing Process

Recipe: Extract With Grains

Blichmann “Quick Carb” Carbonator


For carbonating beer an hour or less before drinkability


Lines: (1) line from tank connected to carbonation stone; (2) uncarbonated beer being drawn from the keg into the carbonator; (3) newly carbonated beer being returned to the keg


The standard CO2 cylinder. The left gauge indicates amount of CO2  in the cylinder; the top gauge indicates the amount of pressure supplied to the keg.


This quick carbonation process may require up to an hour's duration. It's a good alternative to two or three days in the keg with high CO2 pressure applied via a hose.
