Haven't used it, but why bother spending 60 bucks on something that can be done without any extra gadgets? Force carbing works whether you use a fancy carbing lid or not.

i just picked one up from these guys. http://www.tomsbrewshop.com/prod/210...ATION-LID.html

he set me up with a pin lock style. i should be able to keg a new batch in the next week or so. if it works as fast as they say, i will be a happy man. it will be better than fussing with shaking, etc, in my opinion.

I don't see the point. If you're trying to carbonate in 24 hours, there's an easier way. Set 40 psi on the regulator. Let sit 24 hours. Back off to serving pressure, vent the keg, and you're good to go. I don't see any advantage from spending this $60.

Rather than either spending $60 or something on a lid or messing with jacking pressure up and down (I see posts practically everyday by people with foaming or other issues as a result). Drop about $17 and get a CO2 stone and a 2' piece of hose. Attach one end of the hose to your gas IN tube, the stone to the other. Stone sill sit on the bottom of the keg, you can carb your beer in 48 hours at serving pressure. No issues, ZERO chance of over carbonation. Simplest method to carbonate beer quickly.

This is exactly what I was thinking too, but fussing with getting the tube off after it's carbonated was what I was worried about. Leave the tube on?

btw, force carbing never gets me those nice tiny bubbles. The idea of this method and using a stone in general is for the nice tiny bubbles like the pros get... no?
