The one thing that most people like about soda pop other than the flavor is the carbonation of the beverage. This is something you can do at home with other types of beverages to kick the flavor up a notch. If you want to include carbonation to fruit juice, flavored water, wine, or other types of beverages, then a homemade carbonator will be an ideal item in your home. This is something you can easily set up using the proper equipment.
If you are familiar with a propane gas tank, then you can easily work a homemade carbonator. This is a device that is simple to build when you have the proper supplies and accessories. The most important is the tank for the gas. You can’t use any old tank for this project as a food grade tank will be needed for a homemade carbonator.
A local brew shop should have all the equipment and supplies that will be needed to make a homemade carbonator. Another option is to look for a supplier online as the price may be cheaper, but expect extra costs for shipping. If you find a good deal on equipment, then the total cost of this project will be about $200 or less.
You will be surprised at the amount of liquid you can carbonate with a homemade carbonator. You can easily carbonate about two gallons of your favorite beverage each week for up to a year. All that you will need to do is buy a refill of gas. A refill will typically cost about $15 based on prices in your area.
