Better bottle capper

Postby MrBoy » Sun Nov 27, 2016 00:58

After a few hundred bottles, my Wilko capper has rapidly deteriorated the last batch I bottled.

Are there better options or should I treat it as semi disposable? I've been thinking about a bench capper but seen mixed reviews. Either way something robust seems a good call, it would probably save a bit of time too.

I've had my bench capper for about 4 years and its still going strong.
And it was a present from a friend. He had just got a couple of cornies, so it was well used before I got it!

Having heard friends stories about capping issues, I wouldn't even consider getting something less robust!

The big Ferrari floor stander bottle capper that Rob sells is unbeatable . . . And most certainly unbreakable!

Generally bench capers are a world better than hand capers and IMHO this is the best :- http://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/index.ph ... ductId=560

it's big n bulky but no fail and does both sizes of bottle cap. I have one (Christmas a couple of years ago) and I like it but almost any bench caper is better than a hand caper.

I enjoy a glass of wine each night for its health benefits. The other glasses are for my witty comebacks and flawless dance moves.

I use this one from The Malt Miller: http://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/index.ph ... ductId=560

Been great so far, no complaints at all.

Planning - An imperial barley wine
Brewing - Nowt
Conditioning - Plum port (and it'll be conditioning for another 9 years or so)
Drinking - many different beers, and plenty of whisky.

Ferrari Emily is the one I have. It's plastic but pretty heavy duty. Cheaper than a bench capper and I've been happy with it up til now for sure.

Bell end was turned on the lathe, trial and error on a new cap, couldn't find the specification measurements for them at the time, but they are not expensive to buy, or you may be lucky and get one from a "belly up" nipper type capper, there are plenty of those about. :lol:

Was a little harder than I thought to get the shape right for some reason, maybe on a bad day, I would buy one.

I have this one for a couple of years. It is great bottler, well made, but not cheap. Have not had any problems with it at all.

Not that I am aware of. I did not pay as much as that at the time mind. I think the current pound/euro exchange makes it look a bit pricey at present. But it is a cracking bottler though.

I have the Grifo Super, which is sold as the "Deluxe Bench Capper" at More Beer and Williams Brewing, among others. I am still happy with the purchase more than a year and many, many batches later despite the dear price. The capper is SS and hardened steel, and will outlast me. I recommend it highly.
