Introduction: 2 Liter Bottle Picnic Tap
Have you ever looked at your fizzy beverage of choice and thought to yourself "Here I am pouring my drink into my cup like an animal. There has to be a better way!" Lucky for you there is!
Step 1: 2 Liter Picnic Tap - Materials
2 1/4 inch ID barb tubing splicer
#2 rubber stoppper
2 liter bottle cap
About 18 inches of 1/4 inch ID stiff tubing
Several feet of 1/4 inch ID clear tubing
23/64, 3/32, 9/32 drill bits
All of the above can be gotten at a Lowes or similar hardware store. Home Depot does not carry the rubber stopper.
Step 2: 2 Liter Bottle Picnic Tap - Drilling Cap Holes
Your bottle cap will need 4 holes:
23/64 x 1
9/32 x 1
3/32 x 2
Check the picture for the configuration
Step 3: 2 Liter Bottle Picnic Tap - Drilling Stopper Holes
Your stopper will need 2 holes:
23/64 x 1
9/32 x 1
Make sure these holes line up with the ones in your cap. Check the picture for the configuration.
Step 4: 2 Liter Bottle Picnic Tap - Assemble the Cap
Align the holes in the cap and the stopper. Secure the cap to the stopper using the screws. Insert the stiff tubing into the 23/64 hole and push until it reaches the top of the cap. Insert a barb splicer into the top of the stiff tubing. Insert another splicer into the 9/32 hole.
Step 5: 2 Liter Bottle Picnic Tap - Final
How do I use this crazy contraption, you say? Simple! Air pressure on the input side forces out liquid from the output side. Ideally you can get a 1/4 inch picnic tap from Amazon to control the flow or you can control it depending on what you pump in. If you have a carbonated drink you can block the input and the CO2 coming out of solution will provide the pressure.
We have a be nice policy.
