How to carbonate your beverages
Getting started with bubliq drink carbonator
1. Find a drink
Find a drink that you would like to carbonate and pour it in the bottle. Try white wine, apple juice or water with fresh mint leaves for instance. TIP: Cold beverages at a temperature around 4-5° C will absorb the carbon dioxide best.
2. Carbonate your drink
The degree of carbonation greatly depends on personal taste. Hence, experimenting to find the right amount might be a good idea. For best results, we do however recommend the following procedure: Press the carbonator key 3-4 times at 1-2 seconds intervals. Stop when you hear a whistling sound. This means the pressure relief valve is letting gas out, and the bottle has reached its max.
3. Flip the bottle
After carbonation, we recommend to lightly flip the bottle upside down a couple of times to mix the liquiq and gas. Do not shake the bottle!
4. Open the bottle
After carbonation, remove the gas tube from the bottle and enjoy your sparkling water.
5. Other beverages
When carbonating beverages like juice, lemonade, drinks or other beverages containing sugar, please follow this procedure: After carbonation, wait till the foam drops to the max level line. Slowly screw the gas tube 15° counterclockwise to release pressure. When the foam reaches the gas relief mark, close the cap and wait for the foam to drop to the max. level line again. Repeat the procedure until it is safe to open the bottle. Please note, that sugary drinks tend to create more foam. Hence, it may be necessary to repeat the procedure three times before the bottle can be opened safely.
Below you find a list of frequently asked questions.
You can carbonate almost any drink.
However, there are a few exceptions:
- Juice containing fruit pulp, like orange juice with pulp.
- Liquids with high thickness such as undiluted cordial.
Liquids with high thickness can cause the pressure relief valve to clog, resulting in gas building up inside the bottle. This may cause the carbonator to malfunction, which will invalidate the warranty.

You know it is time to stop carbonating your drink, when you hear a whistling sound from the top of the bottle. This means the pressure relief valve is letting gas out, and the bottle has reached its max.
No, it is not necessary to fill the bottle to the max level line. Nor does the gas tube has to be covered by liquid. For better mixing of the gas and drink, we recommend flipping the bottle a few times after carbonation.
