I use to prime my PET bottles with dextrose and carbonation is usually good. My last batch did not carbonate well (for reasons that I am investigating...), I will fix this, but my question is about other ways to carbonate my PET bottles.
I'm thinking about kegging in the future, but I don't want to buy everything right now. So could I buy the following :
- 5lbs CO2 tank
- a regulator
- PET bottle carbonation cap like this one
Then, I could fill my PET bottle with CO2. But how does it work? Is it reliable? Can you guide me on the process?
