Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer

The Royal® Crown Bottle Capper is the first and last capper you’ll ever need, designed to be invincible. We took the traditional double-lever capper, reinforced every joint, used stronger plastic, and tossed, tested, twisted, trampled and literally walked all over our prototypes to deliver you a soldier who will stand reliably by your side whether your homebrewing career will bear 5 batches or 5,000.

Intuitive handling, robust spring-loaded arms and a handy cap-grabbing magnet ensure your best bottling days are ahead of you, while the standard bell can be easily swapped out with a 29mm bell to enable use of the Royal® capper with 29mm European caps.

Works Well But Rivets Rusting After First Batch

I'm a newbie brewer. On my first batch, it says "sanitize everything that will come in contact with the beer". I wasn't sure about the capper so I soaked it in the sanitizing solution to be on the safe side. A few days after my beer was safely bottled, all of the metal rivets on the capper started rusting. Seems like this is either a design oversight or the capper doesn't need to be sanitized. Regardless, I think better instructions are needed so other people don't experience this.

Put a cap on it
Just used it to bottle 2 brews. Worked fine. I hope it lasts better than the one I originally got with my kit. The cap holding area rusted up and the magnet broke off. This one did the trick. Stay calm and brew on my friends. Life is too short for less than stellar beer. :)

The first one I used malfunctioned. I notified Northern and they replaced it and it works like a charm. Thank you.

The concept and application is great. Calling is simple and straightforward but the craftsmanship has a lot to be desired. I managed to cap seven bottles before the little magnet that holds the cap in place while you pull down the levers fell out. This resulted in my having to try to manually center them while trying to pull the levers down at the same time. The result is two bottles didn't seal properly and sent bad. I tossed it and purchased the Corona capper and bottler. I also make BlackBerry wine and it does both corks and caps and so far it's been great.

Oh No!
After reading the promo of this capper I was sold. And it worked great for almost a year and probably 6 or 7 batches of beer. Then halfway through bottling my last batch............."Crack" the plastic broke that supports one of the shafts.. Now what? I can make do without a siphon, but not a capper. I'm going to a metal variety. My recommendation would be to buy this if you're just starting out and are unsure if you will stick with it, but be prepared with a back-up.

Once I figured it out...
My fear was of breaking the bottles' necks, but once I figured out how it worked, it's been great.

Does this work for shorter bottles, like Sierra Nevada and Founders?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Some short squat bottles have wider necks and these can prove difficult to cap. You can get it done, but could risk breaking the capper or bottle if the lock arms, which do grip around the bottle neck, contact the neck. So, if having trouble with short squat bottles, this capper may not be the answer for your bottle source.
Is normal for the capper to press a ring into the top of each cap?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: agree with the previous answer. Happens, but has not affected the beer in any discernible way as far as I can tell. I usually put the cap on the capper then apply to the bottle. I seem to have better control this way.
unbreakable? i received one with my starter kit and it broke while bottling my 2nd batch. just order another, hopefully with better caps and less pressure the new one will last
Thomas T on Jan 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought this to use, primarily, to bottle Belgian bottles that use 29-mm caps. I was able to get a 29-mm bell for it (No. Brewer does not carry them) locally. However, since I just received this and got your question, I used it to bottle a few old ales. My feeling is that it does feel cheap and like it could break. I?d recommend getting a metal one; that?s what I use. It must be 20 years old (a friend gave it to me; it was his dad?s).
Does the Royal Crown Capper include the 29mm bell?
E J on Dec 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The capper does not include a 29 mm bell.
Does Northern Brewer carry the 29-mm bell?
Michael S on Dec 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The royal crown bottle capper is great I have an all metal bottle capper but this one works a hundred times better and smoother without any force.
Where can I get a 29-mm bell for this?
Michael S on Dec 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not sure, but they are out there! We do not carry it, unfortunately.
This capper came in my home brew kit I received as a Christmas gift. I used it for the first time the other day and the plastic cracked after about the 10th bottle. Does It have a warranty?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All products we carry come with a 1 year warranty against defect.
Can you buy a replacement magnet--mine came off somehow, somewhere?
J I on Jan 25, 2016

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! We do not sell replacement parts for those, but a possible alternative would be cutting a bit off of a refrigerator magnet and glue that up in the bell. I wish I had a better solution for you! Have a great day!
I had the red capper for many years and it worked fine. About six months ago I had hard time compressing the cap om the bottle. Went to Milwaukee store and they gave me a new blue capper. The last batch I made I had a difficult time compressing the cap straight on the bottle and broke the neck on four bottles. What's going on?
R O on Jan 2, 2016

I'm sorry that you're having trouble with the capper. The red and blue cappers should function identically. If you would like to bring your capper in, we can take a look at it and try to troubleshoot some of the issues.
