Cheap useless and expensive
I ordered it to try to fix the issues I was having with foam on the last straw bottle filler and it is a total piece of junk. It is cheap plastic which is easy to break, and the seal around the wand doesn't close properly so it doesn't keep any pressure in the bottle. Overly expensive and doesn't work as advertised. Save yourself the time and money and buy something else.

Works well but a slight flaw in the design.
When we 1st got the straw it worked alright but we had issues with too much foam. So we decided to try the foamless finisher. We also now chill the bottles to put the odds in our favor. Those things combined with a little learning curve and we no longer have any issues. I would give it 5 stars but I do feel it's kinda pricey. Also after several uses the tiny pressure release vale easily pops off. The 1st several uses I didn't even know it came off. I feel like it's only a matter of time before you lose it. I now have to hold my thumb over the hole to hold some pressure because the valve is lost. For the money a couple extras would be nice! Maybe NB could provide me a couple, hint hint.

A little finicky to keep seal around steel pipes but still keeps pressure on the bottles once you figure out the proper Height from depressed filler.

Sorry Not for me
Call me a nub but honestly this was very difficult to work with. I wasted probably half a case before I got a few bottles to finally fill properly. What I hate the most is the pressure clamp, it's SO hard to work with. I struggled with it for a LONG time before I finally gave up and decided to use the finisher without it. It seemed to perform OKAY but again, not without a great amont of struggle on my part. I also found that I had to lowering the serving pressure despite all that I have read not to. That was the only way I could get it to fill properly. Hopefully someone will post more videos on how to use it.

Good idea. Poor engineering.
I reviewed this item recently but wasn't logged in to my account so it didn't show up. I've used this three times. The first time was a learning curve but OK. I knocked the tiny pressure valve out and it is very difficult to find. Nothing holds it in place except friction. It is very easily dislodged. The second problem is keeping the valve in the right location. After filling only a few bottles, it slides up on the Last Straw thus loosing its seal on the bottle neck. When setting it up for use last night, the plastic ring that clamps the pieces together bent near the distal end near the locking notch and now doesn't seal tightly. I'm afraid after less than 3 cases of bottles, it is toast. Not the quality I expected for the $50 price tag.

difficult to assemble
very difficult to assemble correctly, tends to warp out of shape when attaching clamp that holds it together. not worth $50, It does do a decent job once you manage to get it together.

Works with practice. Relief valve comes loose to easily.

Not super happy with this.
The valve popped off. I was able to just push it back in. Not sure if that's why I can't seem to get a good seal. Might be user error, but I made a huge mess, lost a ton of beer, and only got three bottles filled that I'm praying maintained good carb level for the competition I'm sending them too. Maybe there's a learners curve, but after first use, I'm not happy at all with this product.

Not too bad
It doesnt seal perfectly, but had a lot of foaming with the bottle filler alone, this definitely helped a bit

Will this work to fill a growler?

With this will I still need to overcarb my kegs to maintain bottle carbonation?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You do not want to over carb the beer. When properly balanced, the units will maintain close to the exact volumes of CO2 initially carbonated. This foamless finish just makes that even easier to obtain and reduce any gas lost during filling by turning the purging bottle filler into a true counter pressure filler.
$50?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yea, $50 paper weight. Totally worthless, I gave it every chance and could not get it to seal. The slit that goes over the liqiud tube does not seal in multiple places. Leaking = no counterpressure. Wish I could turn the $ into a batch of beer.
I just watched the video. Now show me filling a bottle from a keg with an over-carb'd beer. How well does that work?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Adjust the carbonation in the keg before bottling. You could bottle from an over carbed keg but you would waste a lot of beer as it foams. Also chill the bottles before using this product. It will help reduce foaming.
Why is the bottle in the video full with foam if it's called the "formless" finish?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've bottled several beers with this tool. Hefeweizen will always foam, Belgians and other high carbonation beers tend to as well. My light lagers and other more "normal" beers are ok. Work quick, the longer it goes the foamier it gets. I haven't used the additional attachment yet, but my previous comment about that got deleted. I paid for the bottling tool because it was "foamless" but my beers foamed like crazy with certain styles.
Was the cut in the main body supposed to already be there, or are we supposed to cut it ourselves to get it around the liquid line?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your foamless finish will already have a slice to slip over the metal tubing. You should not need to cut anything to make the foamless finish work.
Why isn't this included standard with the last straw?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not automatically include the Foamless Finish because it is not necessary for the Last Straw's function as a bottle filler- it converts the Last Straw into a counter pressure filler.
Will the Last Straw be modified (lengthened) in the future to accommodate 750 ml bottles and the Foamless Finish?
