No. I meant it for my mead. I don't make large enough batches to justify a keg so now I can try carbing small portions of my sweeter meads.

I looked into getting that. I use screw top bottles for my mead and even thought about getting a couple bags of the rubber nipple things to convert the screw tops into fiz giz caps. But that is as far as I got lol. Let us know how it works.

Do you know where you can order those from? I have yet to find any. Supposedly you can order more caps of varying quality from fizzgiz but I haven't found where

After I posed I did go research and it does look interesting. I have been bottling all my mead and apfelwein with corks, but I bet a modified wine saver cork would also work. I will also be interested in your results.

Well as I have no idea about what this "device" or whatever is, is

How about posting a link as it'd be interesting to see if there's any local equivalent.....

Www.fizzgiz.com

They offer the upgraded version on amazon which uses a bulk co2 tank.

The guy who makes them offers DIY instructions too on his site
