- 4.7 / 5.0116 ReviewsI love that i now have a compact space to dry my empties, and how many I can dry at once. Also being able to dry the bottles upside down is a HUGE plus, as you won't have unexpected surprises in your bottles.
The only thing I'm not too keen on, is the upper rack only sits on top of the lower bottles. It makes it a bit unstable if the location where your bottles dry is prone to getting bumped.
That being said, this is a fantastic product!February 7, 2018Purchased
1 month agoRugged and performsWas surprised by the quality of the product. The plastic is very heavy duty and very durable. Product works as advertised. The only knock I have is the rack legs (4) sit on the bottles, so they don't airdry as fast. But as you can see, I still give this 5 stars.January 6, 2018Purchased

7 months agoGreat systemThis is a great system and I have no complaints. Space-efficient storage. Also good as the drip racks when you are sanitizing bottles with Star San.August 10, 2017Purchased
7 months agoNot for GrolschI found I was unable to use this rack with Grolsch style bottles. Too bad I have a lot of them. Perhaps the company could be interested in making a Grolsch model.August 6, 2017Purchased

With 48 bottles of beer I really wanted something to help me out and this one was just perfect.July 15, 2017Purchased
8 months agodoesn't fit 22 Oz. bottles.a bit disappointed, doesn't fit normal 22 Oz. bottles. That picture is deceptive, probably great for 12 oz. only. . one can only put one every other space, and then you don't have room to stack as several bottles end up in the corner, they rock around, bottles ride high. I guess if you had two trays and just had a lot of table space, not really what is being presented. Should include a second tray. I can only give it one star, even that is pushing it. I will stick with the tree I guess.June 27, 2017Purchased

- Browse 13 questions Browse 13 questions and 24 answersHow stable is the rack that sits on top?BEST ANSWER: Hi Jeff,
It's pretty stable. I wouldn't lean on it or put any extra weight on it, but if you're using it just to dry bottles, you should be fine.Are they dishwasher safe?BEST ANSWER: I?m not sure if they are dishwasher safe, but they sure are handy for sanitizing your bottles!Will fast rack fit 12oz stubbies, not RedStripe but Anchor Steam, Two Roads, and the Newer Ommegang (Nirvana IPA and Beligan Witt) bottles?BEST ANSWER: These are made more for "long-neck" type bottles; the "stubby" bottles would not be held very well in this type of drying rack. A Bottle Tree would be better for short-neck bottles. -Mike W, Northern BrewerCan the racks be used with both 12oz and bomber at same time?BEST ANSWER: You can... but you can't fill every spot with a bomber. I usually can fit about half as many bombers as 12oz bottles.In what configuration does this product hold 36 bomber bottles? I'm assuming you need to skip putting bottles in some of the holes?BEST ANSWER: I'm very certain that the website is incorrect when it mentions how many bomber bottles can load in two trays. 24 is about the best that you can do, placing a bottle in every other spot (12 bottles per tray). I believe that the website is incorrect with how many 22 oz bombers you can load into the two trays. It does not seem safe to stack these (unless it were 12 ounce bottles). If this was meant to hold 36 bombers, FastRack should supply a 'load sheet' on how you are supposed to do this.Can you please show me a configuration where 36 x 22oz. bomber bottles will fit into 2 racks and 1 tray? I can't even get 24 bottles into 2 racks without leaving 2 corners on each rack blank, rendering them unstackable (safely). By the way, only bombers with narrow necks will fit at all. ThBEST ANSWER: I have the same problem. The best case scenario, is to place a bottle in every other spot but that will only let you place 12 bombers per tray. To get the 36 bottles, you would need 3 trays. I believe that the website is incorrect with how many 22 oz bombers you can load into the two trays. I agree, that it does not seem safe to stack these (unless it was 12 ounce bottles) FastRack should supply a 'load sheet' on how you are supposed to load 36 bombers in two racks.Will this system work with the "Beer Bottles 16 oz. - 12 pack" that you sell?BEST ANSWER: This system does work with 16 oz bottles. If you will be using the EZ cap bottles you will need to remove the wire bails from the bottles to fit them in the rack.Will these hold Grolsch-style bottles? If so, do I need to remove the metal clips and ceramic stops?BEST ANSWER: From what I can tell, it'll only hold standard bottles. I haven't tried other bottles, but the slots seem custom fit for regular bottles and not much else.Can 16 oz ez cap bottles be used with thisBEST ANSWER: Not with the swing tops attached but if you detach the swing tops you can fit the bottle into a hole on the fast rack. You could probably only fit like 8-10 bottles per rack that way.Delivery in Brazil?BEST ANSWER: We do not ship internationally. Cheers!I have pint plastic bottles and e-z cap glass pint bottles. How do they work with this ?BEST ANSWER: Hey Wayne
The ez cap or Grolsch style bottles won't work in the Fastrack because of the clunkiness of the swing tops. The plastic pint bottles would work though
just don't over load the top rack with any glass bottles so you don't crush the plastic ones at all.Will it fit the fliptop 16 & 32 OZ. Bottles?BEST ANSWER: Yes it will
but you will need to remove the wire bails from the bottles firstI am using .5 liter Weihenstephaner bottles. will it work ok with them?BEST ANSWER: Yes
the FastRack will work with those bottles.
