Recommendation

– 1 – Only fill these up to half way with hop pellets to release the flavours/oils.
– 2 – By filling it halfway, you can add 2-3 Ping-Pong Balls to the Hop-Dom which will allow it to float in the Wort/Beer making it perfect for Dry Hopping.

– 4 – There may be sharp edges so be careful when cleaning the mesh.
– 5 – As a precaution, hold the top & the bottom firmly when unscrewing & screwing on the lid,
thereby not over exerting & twisting the Hop-Dom out of shape.

The Hop-Dom has the benefit of “All the fun without the Mess”

You are now ready to pour your first brew!

You will need to become familiar & accustomed to pouring your beer to suit the beer, the style & your preference.This does take some trial & error, but you will have a ton of fun doing this, plus, you will be the envy of all your mates at the Barbie!

We recommend a low PSI for pouring, between 3-6PSI to avoid foaming.
Also, for best results, place your minikeg in the fridge before filling. This prevents the beer foaming which occurs when cold liquid is transferred into a warm vessel.

The swivel adaptor will continue to spin & appear to be loose. Don’t be alarmed as this is normal. Ensure that all seals are in place on the components before turning a CO2 cylinder into the regulator.
You can remove the nut on the base of the Regulator & attach to a Soda Stream bottle, by adding a suitable compatible adaptor.
