Copper Tun carbonation drop review

Recommended Posts

Tried Copper Tun carbonation drops for the first time.

They are kind of expensive. But I have to say. Definitely worth it, they are so convenient.
We have opened 16 bottles so far. Carbonation has been VERY consistant.

The package calls for 1 drop per 12oz. bottle, and 2 drops per 22oz. bottle.
I bottle most of my stuff in 16oz. bottles. The guy at my LHBS said to just use 2 for the 16oz. bottles also. Worked great. Although, I think that I will use 1 drop per 16oz. bottle for my porters, and stouts.

I will definitely be using these from now on.

Never tried these but I don't bottle much anymore. But, stouts and porters are always less carbonated.

There are other brands of drops that aren't as expensive but nothing is as cheap as plain old table sugar or corn sugar. You pay for convenience and ease.
But, it's good to know these are golden.

That's why he said he'd only use 1 dot for those and not 2. :silly:

Glad you found something that works bni.
A lot of people have had success with domino's dots as well.

I will have to look for that at my LHBS. I've only bottled one batch so far but I found it to be a pain in the butt adding table sugar to 12oz bottles. Thanks for the heads up on that! :popbeer:

This may be a stupid questions but when you use the term "generic" what do you mean? Just getting use to all this home brew lingo.

Meaning not specific to a style.

For example, stouts are less carbed than 2.5 volumes.

Wheats are more crabed than 2.5 volumes.

Yeah, I'd use the Dominos Dots over these, you get 198 Dots (instead of 60 of these) for half the price, and they will do the same thing.
