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.

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.

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.

Great product
I like it. Once you figure out the CO2- beer flow it's amazing.

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!

It works. It bends a bit though, so be careful not to kink the tube.

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

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.

Going to buy one
I borrowed one and used it for 3 22oz bottles only. My first bottle foamed too.... realized I forgot to turn co2 valve off. Left it bubbling at the bottom of bottle. A mistake you only make once I suppose. After that it worked great. It's hard for me to give it back to my buddy but I showed the wife how it worked and she liked it too. So I'll buy one prob next payday!!!!!!!!! There are other design out there that look like the would be easier to use but I'll save the money and buy this one. It is pretty easy to use after the second bottle. Hope this helps someone!!!! P.S. thanks Northern Brewer for great products and even better customer service!

Why doesn't beer come out of the relief valve?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will come out of the relief valve if you don't close it once beer reaches the top of the bottle. It is tricky to use, and don't get distracted. When you open the relief valve it reduces the pressure in the bottle so beer will flow in. When you close the relief valve the pressure is equalized and the beer doesn't flow. When the bottle is full close all valves (with all three of your hands) then release the pressure in the bottle by opening the relief valve, then remove and cap.
Are all surfaces that contact the beer stainless? I have heard that brass isn't good for beer.
A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is only a tiny little surface that is brass probably one inch long, the rest is stainless. I doubt it makes a difference.
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.
Can you ship a counter pressure filer to Germany? What would the shipping be?
B R on Oct 28, 2015
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.
