Ferrari Automatic Bottle Filler
The filler has a tapered fitting that accommodates 5/16, 3/8 & 1/2 siphon hoses. To use, simply attach the siphon hose to the spigot on the bottling bucket & filler unit, turn the spigot on, push the button on the filler & the filling begins! When the bottle is full, the unit automatically shuts off. The rubber piece that goes into the bottle can be moved to adjust the fill level. The nut on the top of the unit allows regulation of the flow.
I found the filler better for me than the pressure plate type filler. While it tended to stop automatically as advertised, it could occasionally overflow. I’ll use it next time I bottle over the pressure plate filler I have.
This piece was not in my 2015 kit so I purchased one, a great time and wine saver.
Really like it.
This worked great. I ran water through it first to adjust the blow off tube and set the fill level then did my first 5 gallon batch. I worked smooth and filled perfect every time to the same level in each bottle. Saved me a lot of time and hassle over the old stick filler type. No mess and easy clean up. I do recommend this.
This filler makes bottling very easy, mess free, and straight forward. While a second bottle is filling, the first can be corked, and by then the second one is full, and while the third one is filling the second one can be corked...goes really fast ! Well worth the very inexpensive cost.
