FORCE CO2 SYSTEM
Force carbonate your favorite recipe and save time. Take up to 7 days off your brewing time and eliminate the yeast sediment you get during natural carbonation. Normally this process is cumbersome and expensive, but in true BrewDemon fashion we have made it simple. This system works with our standard 1 Liter bottles or any previously used plastic soda bottles.
The unit comes with its own built-in pressure regulator, so you can't add more CO2 the bottle can handle. Includes 28mm plastic caps designed for our 1 Liter PET bottles or most over the counter soda bottles. This kit Includes everything you need to carbonate a 1 gallon batch.
- (1) Fizz Giz Hand Carbonation Unit
- (4) Carbonation Caps
- (2) CO2 Bulbs
This can help maintain and preserve your recipe for the short and long term. Use it to pressurize and re-pressurize your head space after pouring a glass. Sanitize your bottles and caps before using.
HOW TO INSTRUCTIONS
Follow the steps outlined in the instructions that came with your brewing system. If you don't have these, download a copy below.
SANITIZE ALL EQUIPMENT THAT COMES IN CONTACT WITH YOUR RECIPE.
Because CO2 doesn’t instantaneously dissolve in liquid. We suggest you follow instructions below then let the bottles sit overnight in the refrigerator for best results. You can always add another shot of CO2 in the morning if more carbonation is needed. First you will need to sanitize your bottles and caps.
- 3.1. Open CO2 dispenser by unscrewing its bottom and inserting provided CO2 cartridge.
- 3.2. Using the tap and fill each sanitized 1 liter PET bottle just above the base of the neck. Now, remove the excess oxygen by gently squeezing each bottle until the liquid works its way up the neck, cap the bottle when it gets to the top (using your sanitized CO2 caps). Securely tightened each cap.
- 3.3. Place bottle in one hand and your CO2 dispenser in the other, Invert your bottle while pressing the tip of your dispenser into center cap hole (barely touching the tip to the seal is sufficient). Careful not to push too deep.
- 3.4. Push down on dispenser’s thumb-button until the bottle becomes firm to the touch (the unit has a built-in pressure regulator, so it will stop filling on its own). Now, shake bottle vigorously for 20-30 seconds (this promotes faster diffusion of CO2 into your recipe). Then add more CO2.
- 3.5. Repeat 3-4 times.

After you’ve had a glass or two, but don’t want to finish the bottle. This step will help maintain and preserve your recipe for the short-term.
