Rated 3 out of 5 by Ferg from Too Expensive For the cost you could do dozens of batches with regular sugar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kokomatiko from Like the Carbonation drops No problems with the carbonation drops. They are convenient and easy to remember and to detect how many of them you've added to the bottles. However, I haven't found a way to cut them into halves for the 12 oz bottles. Does anyone have a good idea?

Rated 5 out of 5 by AZNHB from Great for the new brewer People have said "Oh they are too expensive", but I would wholly recommend them for their simplicity in building your brewing skills. Once you have perfected the foundation, then you can get into batch priming etc. I think these really help new brewers see how much carbonation affects the end product, so as they progress they can use online calculators to change carbonation expectations between different styles of beer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Andrew12 from Carb Drops Got my kit for Christmas last year and brewed a batch of nicely conditioned ale. Drops didn't work. Not even a little bit. No carbonation whatsoever. Changed temps, experimented with different lagering times and even got new bottles/caps on case they weren't air tight. Nothing. Super disappointed and a waste of a good batch of brew/4 months of my life. Do yourself a favor and toss these bad boys in the garbage and use measured sugar for your fizz needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoff from Much better instead of sugar! I bought these in hope that they would be better at carbonating my batches instead of adding sugar, and they turned out to be excellent! My beer didn't taste flat anymore, and the drops worked very well with carbonating my batch. I highly recommend using instead of sugar.

If I’m using a 2 gallon container, how many drops do I use?
It may be easier at that volume to use a calculator like Brewer's Friend (https://www.brewersfriend.com/beer-priming-calculator/). You can use their calculator to find your style of beer and how much sugar (of your choice) it will take to carbonate your batch. Feel free to call or email if you have more questions. Cheers.

Are carbonation drops and brewmax booster used for the same purpose?
Hello, They are not. Carb drops are only for carbonation and Booster is used during fermentation to boost alcohol. Cheers!

Crazy question. I got one of your kits a few years back but don't drink much beer. I am getting into making home brewed soda pop with small amounts of champagne yeast Would your drops help increase my carbonation?
Hello, carb drops are just sugar so they will work in nearly any natural carbonation process. Cheers!

Can you use honey instead of sugar for carbination
You sure can, it's even the same ratio; 2x tsp for each 740ml bottle.

my American Lager kit did not come with carbonation pack. can i buy these when i get bottles and use them with the Lager beer?
Hello, Not all kits come with carb drops but you can purchase them separately or you can use sugar to prime your bottles with this chart here: https://www.mrbeer.com/media/wysiwyg/Misc/sugar.png Cheers!

I'm going to be using these in my cider, which is being racked in the fridge. Does it matter at what temp my cider is for the drops?
If the yeast you are using is still active at your priming/conditioning temps, carb drops will work! Cheers!
