Gift Guide: CO2 Keg Charger

Sometimes you want to dispense your beer and not have to lug around your CO2 tank, regulator and hoses to do it. That’s where the CO2 Keg Charger comes in. It fits in your pocket and uses CO2 cartridges to dispense CO2. Let’s talk about what this little gadget can do. It screws into the threaded end of your keg’s gas line disconnect and lets you serve your delicious homebrew anywhere. Press the trigger to release CO2 into the keg, then release the trigger to stop flow. Save the remaining CO2 for later use. It’s like a mobile CO2 tank.

However… it will not force carbonate your beer. It can’t make whipped cream. It will not inflate your tires or blow dry your hair. It’s just for dispensing beer.

CO2 Keg Charger

Basically, this is a simple convenience item. Very few people want to bring their entire keg set up to a party, so they will force carbonate at home and then bring a cobra tap and this device and avoid the hassle of needing to bring their CO2 tank, regulator, etc. Also, the CO2 cartridges that this uses are available at the store, so it’s easy to get more.

This keg charger also comes with a free pack of two CO2 chargers so you can give it a spin right out of the package.

How much do they cost?

They are $20 each.

What do I say when I give this to look super-knowlegdable?

“With this little gadget, you can bring your keg to a party and serve homebrew from your keg without needing your CO2 tank or regulator.”

Why will the person I give it to think I’m awesome?

This gift is the perfect stocking stuffer for a homebrewer who kegs their beer. They’ll be able to easily serve their homebrew from a keg anywhere because of this gift you gave them. And that’s awesome.
