The next step in mastering homebrew quality control is to get your beer into the keg without any oxygen exposure at all. Our series of Pressure Transfer Kits provide two major functions. It starts siphon or pressure transfer using an external source of CO2 pressure. It also backfills the donor vessel's increasing headspace with CO2 so that room air (oxygen and contaminants) is kept from being drawn in.

This kit is specifically crafted for the transfer of your fermented beverage between a PET or glass Carboy and a Corny keg. This version of the kit is considered "premium" in that the gas input uses a ball lock connection and the cane and tubing are stainless steel and silicone respectively. These items can be boiled for heat sterilization.

This kit includes: Carboy Cap, Gas input via stainless steel ball lock to barbfitting, 23" x 3/8" stainless steel racking cane with anti-sediment tip, Six feet of 3/8" silicone racking tubing, and a ball lock beverage QD with 3/8" MFL barb.

Best Practices:
Fill your clean corny keg with starsan solution. Pressurize with CO2 and purge the headspace 3 times in short bursts. Hang the racking cane into a bucket to catch the starsan. Clip the black QD onto your keg's liquid out post. Push all of the starsan out of the keg into the bucket. Disconnect the gas from the keg and pull the vent to remove most of the pressure.
Be sure the entire racking cane and underside of the carboy cap has recently been in the starsan bucket before inserting on top of your carboy.
Secure the carboy cap on top of your fermenter. Lower your CO2 regulator until the gauge reads zero. Hook up the gas line to the MFL fitting on the carboy cap.
Pull up the vent on your corny keg and turn it 90 degrees to lock it open.
Slowly increase regulator pressure while checking for liquid flow. You only need 1 PSI or so to get it to start flowing. You may need to hold one hand around the carboy cap on the initial pressurized start to keep it from popping off. Once you have flow and the siphon is running, you can lower the pressure just a touch to keep excess pressure from building in the carboy. Use good judgement and don't do anything that would allow more than 1psi to build in a glass carboy.

Tip: While the transfer is occurring, the best way to steal a sample for your hydrometer is to disconnect the black QD from the keg, pinch the tubing right near the barb and remove it from barb. Fill the hydrometer test jar by relaxing your pinch on the tube, then quickly replace onto the QD barb when finished. When you reattach it to the keg, the transfer will continue.
