Anybody use these? I was thinking about buying two of these. It seems like an easy practical way to transport your beer.

So how easy is it to use these? Just fill up from your draft tap and pressureize? These will only be used by me for transporting to partys, and club meetings. Not for long term storage.

They are a bit spendy. $12.00 each. So If you own one of these I would like your input. Are they worth it?

And then some.
I love these things. I always take samples and do a quick force carb, or they are great to take along homebrew pretty much anywhere. I just fille done up with Lake Walk Pale Ale and stuffed it in my suitcase and brought it on a cruise with me.

I'm getting ready to purchase a few more.

Sweet, thanks guys!!

So If my beer is already carbonated, all I do is just screw the top on and just pressurize right? What should your pressure be set at to pressurize? I don't want any exploding two liters in my kitchen.

And how long does it take to force carb from dead flat?

This might come in handy to take camping too! Im sold!!!!

Look what I just found.

I snatched these up pretty quick. I dont have very high expectations. I just wanna see if they work. If they work I'll try to make my own. They look fairly easy to make.

Im still planing on buying two of the brand name Carbonator-Caps after I get off of work today.
