This is a KCAP BETA TEST version and there will be further improvements including but not limited to:
• The delivery of a fully pre-assembled unit
• reduction of pressure tolerances
• a new catalogue of valves with different PMAX headings to choose the right CO2 volumetry for each style or beer or desired carbonation.

KCAP USAGE CONDITIONS
Storage of the bottles capped with KCAP
For KCAP to function correctly, bottles must be stored vertically.
Even when the beverage is in contact with the valve, the excess pressure flows escapes due to the semipermeable membrane which blocks the liquid but allows the gas expulsion.
The one-directionality of the flow is guaranteed by the mechanical system integrated in the Bidule.
Automatic bottling machine
Assemble the caps manually
Insert the KCAPS in the bottling machine cap container and bottle normally
If you encounter issues with the full automatic mode, only insert the crown caps in the bottling machine and cap the bottles manually with the plastic valve.
Please report any issues to us for further improvements.
Cap the bottles as usual.
5 years of guaranteed valve functionality in normal storage conditions. Storing at room temperature, avoiding direct sunlight.
