uKeg Force Carbonation Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Fill the uKeg with the beverage you want to carbonate.  You want to leave 1-2 inches of head space below the cap.
  2. Charge the cap with CO2.  Using a 16-gram cartridge ensures you’ll have enough CO2 to carbonate and dispense.  Some CO2 will go into the beverage, and the rest will be used to dispense it. Click Here To Purchase Your Box Of CO2
  3. Place the cap on the uKeg and turn the pressure up to 15 psi. Setting to this high pressure drives CO2 into the beverage faster.
  4. Put the uKeg in your refrigerator for 2-3 days
  5. After 3 days, the beverage will be fully carbonated
  6. Turn the dial down to about half-way (7-10 psi)
  7. Pour, sip, repeat
  8. You can adjust the dial to automatically maintain the perfect carbonation
