A BubbaBox is like aJockey Boxexcept even more portable and way less complicated. The aim of this blog post is to list off all the parts that I used in THIS VIDEOto make the 50-Quart Black Coleman cooler with threeBUBBA KEGS.
Here is the exactCOOLER I bought off Amazon, unfortunately they have raised the price about $40 from when I bought it. But, as I say in the video, you can change it up any way you like with various coolers and pop bottles.
Then to secure the carbonation cap to the lid of the cooler you can use thisCOUPLINGfor use with the3mm ID hose. You would use the 3mm hose when extra flow restriction is need to prevent foaming. Mainly an issue when serving beer. In thisPROMO VIDEOthe beer is being served at about 15psi through 4' of the 3mm hose and it worked great all day.
Or use thisREDUCER COUPLINGfor either the4mm ID HOSEor the5mm ID HOSE. You would use the 4mm with less carbonated beers when you want a faster flow than the 3mm. About 6' should be fine. For non carbonated beverages you can use the 5mm to have it pour nice and fast. Leave enough hose to open the lid.
To make it easy you can just buy a full 12M roll of the EVABarrier 4mm hose and it will work for everything, both liquid and gas.
Here is thepart in the videowhere I show this. It doesn't matter at all what size hose you use for the gas.
That's about it, fill up your kegs and bottles and your ready to go. If you would like to fill your own kegs from a commercial 50L Sanke keg check out this video demonstrating the Direct Fill method.
More videos are on the way that will demonstrate how to make large batch cocktails in 2L and 5L batches. Here are a couple videos where I touch on the idea but more are coming soon.
BTW, Here is an old video I made a few years back, that shows one of the early attempts at a BubbaBox. The good news is now it’s way easier to build, and works even better. But you still might find the video interesting or funny, I was a little buzzed while filming.
