Counterpressure filling involves purging the container, pressurizing it it CO2, and then bleeding off the pressure gradually to make beer flow into the container from another pressurized vessel (typically a keg). I don't see how that would be possible with a carbonation cap. I made my own carbonation cap ages ago (before you could buy them) using some ...

wow 25.83 PSI, that is tight. The real world does not work like that, nor can you measure 100th of a PSI. every beverage beer, larger, ale and bitter and the differences between each home brewed batch, temperature, the length of you gas lines, beer lines and even the mood that your in can all make something taste different and perceived carbonation. The ...

I use corny kegs (picture below), to fully carbonate I pump to 30psi and leave for a week, re-pump (open the bottle valve) to 30psi every so often when the pressure drops through absorption or leave the bottle attached and valve open. Or (I don't really like doing this) lay keg on its side with the gas connector up, then pressurise to 30psi leave the bottle ...

For the Top gauge this is your output pressure, adjusted by the screw Numbers in red = PSI (marked bottom centre in red above the screws in the gauge) Numbers in black = Kg/cm2 (marked bottom centre in black above the screws in the gauge) I think, picture not clear, but makes sense as 10Kg/cm2 = 142.233psi so if you want 8psi it would be approx the first ...

You'll have to take what I say with a grain of salt, I am not very experienced in working with that high of a nitro mix, or serving at that temp. I'm surprised you're able to serve beer at 2.6 bar, that would be like a firehose out of one of my taps. Even for a nitro mix, I would think you'd still be under 2 bar. However, lighter carbonation is going to be a ...

So, the vent hole in the keg lid for the old valve (on the right) was 3/16". The new valve appears to be for a 1/4" hole so ended up drilling out the vent hole in the lid. Maybe this will be helpful to anyone else stumbling across the same thing. Seems to seal OK with the new valve. shrug

Do you use picnic taps? Every time the lid is opened, warm humid air is allowed to enter, cool, and result in condensation on surfaces. If this is the case, the standard mounted shank & faucet type taps should reduce the amount of times that the lid is opened and thus, reduce condensation.
