Nothing is more refreshing that having your own soda water on tap at home. SodaStream units are great but filling up those tiny 1L bottles is a pain and those small CO2 cylinders run out fast and are expensive to swap. Solve this problem once and for all with the Continuous Soda Carbonator Keg Reactor Solution.
- Position the keg inside your fridge or kegerator (ideally below 40°F).
- Attach your beverage draft line to the soda water out post.
- Attach your gas line to the gas-in post.
- Set your CO2 regulator to 30-50 psi, depending on how highly carbonated you like your soda water. We highly recommend using a check valve on your CO2 line.
- On first use, purge the air from the headspace of the keg.
- Connect the mains water to the water inlet post on the lid of the keg.
We recommend also using a check valve on your mains water line to prevent soda water from going back into your house mains. Depending on your mains water pressure, you may need to reduce it using an in-line regulator. For the Carbonator Keg Lid to work well, the mains water pressure should be 30-40 psi higher than your regulator set pressure (from Step 4).
That's it. This simple unit will give you continuous soda water connected to your mains water.
Please note: if you are using a CO2 regulator that uses a corny-style PRV, you will need to swap out the standard Green PRV with the 0-100 Gray PRV so you can raise the pressure above 60 psi. Always check the pressure rating of your keg(s) before swapping the PRV.
Ordered my first set about 14 years ago when I started kegging instead of bottling my homebrew. Talked to them on the phone and explained to them that my home made kegerator could only accept the shorter Corny Kegs. He put me on hold and went out and measured the shortest ones he had and gave me the measurements. They worked and I ordered them. Got out of homebrewing for 10 years but now back into it. Still have the same kegerator. Called Corny Keg 2 weeks ago and Told them I need the shortest ones they have. I'm pretty sure I spoke with the same person from 14 years ago! He hooked me up with two more kegs that fit. These guys rock! Thanks for taking the time to treat your customers right. I raise my glass.
These aEB Ball Lock Kegs made in Italy are the BEST! Those made by other vendors from India & China are difficult to seal, generally leak, and are unstable.
I'm very pleased with the 3 Universal Lid With Manual Pressure Relief Valve I received, I got a few pinlock kegs converted to ball lock I'm using for pressure fermentation, fits perfectly thanks.
Great kegs, Dave is also so quick to reach out if any issues. An absolute pleasure to work with!
I’ve dealt with these guys for nearly 20 years! They know their stuff!
Product packed well and came in the mail quickly, satisfied with my purchase thanks.
We purchased several 4 packs of these reconditioned ball lock kegs and each one was decent quality, in good shape, had new gaskets, and were ready for use. As a new startup brewery, we need to keep our costs down while building our permanent inventory and this was a great purchase for us.
I have been very impressed with the quality and customer service each time I have purchased from Corny Kegs for my small business (making kombucha). Each keg has held a seal well and Dave has been super kind on the phone to help me with any questions I have as I scale and needed to order more. You won't be disappointed.
These are great kegs, one thing to be aware of, there is no pressure release valve that can be manually controlled. You can release pressure with a tool but not with just your hands
Great product. Good value. Just wish the guy had told me that the keg I would get was not what was pictured. Not a big deal. When I call back they di explain and gave me a discount. Would definitely buy for them again
Kegs work as advertised, no problems. Owner (Dave) is terrific, knowledgeable and responsive.
