Product Details

Counter-pressure bottling allows you to transfer chilled, carbonated beer from a keg to a bottle with minimal foaming and CO2 loss. This CPF has three valves - one to purge an empty beer bottle with CO2, one to control gas flow to push the beer, and one to control liquid flow of beer from keg to bottle. Includes complete instructions.

Needed but not included is the tubing kit (#7207) which connects the filler to any draft system with 1/4-inch MFL threaded connections.

beats the blichmann beer gun
I've been using the beer gun for the past few years, with lots of foam and lost beer, especially when that darn rubber tip falls off. This counterpressure filler is great. I bottled two corny kegs and probably lost a cup of beer. Wasn't the fasted time I've ever bottled two kegs but was much easier with much less mess and waste.

Love it!
Not for bottling one or two bottles. Plan on wasting a little the first bottle while you dial in your technique. Think of this as your beverage to sip on while you bottle the rest. Otherwise great! Can't wait to use a separate set of lines and use this for all of my buggy beers!

Works great
Like everyone says, takes a few bottles to figure it out, but then it works like a dream.

Great stuff!
If you want to compete this is a must have piece of equipment. If you bottle condition your beer you know the stewards or the person that inventories your beer on judge day is gonna be busy and will be rough handling all the beers. Then resulting in cloudy beer with yeast floaties. Not usually a big deal for a homebrewer but it is a competition. You want every point. A counterpressure filler is a little tricky to use but once you have the techique down it's no problem. I always plan on messing up the first two bottles. So I always plan on drinking my first two beers on bottling day. There is a video on morebeer.com that goes step by step and really shows how easy it is after a little practice. Not only is this good for competition but it is good for guys who prefer kegging and just want to take a couple bottles camping or to a friends house where a growler isn't best suited. In short if the above situations apply to you need this filler.

18,000 Bottles and counting
A lot of the reviews about this filler are negative, if you want to fill carbonated beer into bottles, you should know how carbonated beer works first. It is a poor craftsman who blames his tools. I've bottled over 18,000 (yes, eighteen thousand) bottles of a variety of beers with this exact filler. I'll admit, the first day I bathed in porter, but I didn't give up. I slowed down and started from very low psi and worked up. I can do roughly 120 bottles per hour but, I know my beer and I am patient with my filler. I do know that it will run for ever. I now use Meheen fillers but I would not have them if it weren't for my CPF. Cheers!

Rubber Stopper
This works great except for the rubber stopper. Just go ahead and buy a new stopper before you use this even once. The stopper is to small and will fall into any size bottle.

Not bad but tricky to use
It's awesome to have but the rubber stopper gets stuck and lost inside the mouth of 22 oz bombers. Luckily the rubber stopper from my fermenator fit perfectly. The tricky part is pulling the device off of the bottle and getting the cap crimped before the pressure release catches up to you and sprays sticky beer all over the place. I'm still happy I have the filler.

Works great, a little slow though
Was debating between this filler of a beer gun and went with this one since it will have the least amount of carbonation lost.There is a learning curve with this as you figure out your pattern of which valves to open and close and when.My first mistake was not tightening the sliding portion onto the filling tube resulting in gas leaking out from the top but it still worked ok. After I figured that out everything was as advertised.Next the two main errors were leaving the co2 valve open while trying to fill which results in bubbles and then leaving the beer flow on when pulling the stopper out which results in a beer shower. By then end of two cases my wife and I had it down though.

Is there a pressure regulator and pressure gauge available for the counterpressure filler?
F O on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is not specifically. You could probably set up something DIY with any pressure gauges, but we do not find such a modification necessary for proper use.
Hi,
Can you ship a counter pressure filer to Germany? What would the shipping be?
Thanks,
Lance

BEST ANSWER: I am sorry. We are only able to ship to addresses in the United States. ��There are a few forwarding companies out there though

that provide you with a U.S. address and we can ship to that. From there

they will be responsible for the package and any necessary documents required for shipping it to you. ��An online search should give you some options

if that is something you would like to pursue.
