Product Details

Required accessory for ported Better Bottles™. Use with a SimpleFlo valve (#7898) to transfer beer or wine by draining from a spigot instead of starting a siphon. The internal racking arm can be rotated on its Teflon-encapsulated o-rings and washers inside the Better Bottle™ to minimize the transfer of yeast and sediment. Made of the same PET plastic as the Better Bottles™.

I am a big fan of better bottle carboys however this valve system is way too expensive, slow and stops up easily. Better off with the old auto siphon racking cane.

So much easier
I'll never go back to glass now that I've gotten a couple ported better bottles with these racking adapters. Whether transferring to a secondary or bottling straight from the carboy, these are must haves. Not only does it eliminate the need for a siphon, but I find it stirs up far less sediment when transferring than when using a siphon which results in clearer beer. It also allowed me to get those last drops of beer off the trub much easier than with a siphon.

Why would you not buy one?
Expensive but if you are using a better bottle it is well worth the price. I have 4 better bottles and all of them have this and the brewometer attached to them, never had an issue and will never, ever go back to racking with a cane.However I am not sure how that little stainless cotter pin is suppose to work without completely modifying it. Someone please explain that one...

Great time saver
I used my new BetterBottle with the racking adapter to bottle a 5 gallon batch today. It was really nice to have the racking adapter that I could rotate inside the bottle to get the last drop. I just attached the bottle filler to the BetterFlo output valve (it snaps right in) and hung it over the edge of the counter. It was much easier than attaching the bottle filler to my auto-siphon using tubing. That was a hassle because you have to hold the auto-siphon off the bottom of the bottling bucket and also watch your bottle fill. Usually a 2 person job to fill bottles with the auto-siphon. With the BetterBottle and racking adapter, I easily filled 24 750ml bottles by myself in about an hour. Kind of expensive (the racking adapter and valve cost more than the bottle) but well worth it.

The Racking Adapter makes brewing easier!
I love using the racking adapter. I save time by not having to watch the auto-siphon. Even more importantly, I can rack more more beer without getting any trub or yeast. This makes my brewing process much smoother!

Will the Better Bottle racking arm and fill valve work with the port on this fermentor?

I don't understand how this works. does it stop the floww to move from bottle to bottle? howdoes it hook up to your 5 gallon wine ready to bottle?

BEST ANSWER: Mr Thomas is correct, this is only part of the assembly, you also need the other part ( the SimpleFlo Valve ) to make it work. These are only for the ported Better Bottles, and it provides a way to rack from the carboy to another carboy, or to bottles with a bottle filler.
