DetailsThe Counter Pressure Bottle Filler allows you to bottle beer after it has been chilled and carbonated in the keg. This device creates a pressurized atmosphere eliminating nearly all of the foam created by the bottling process, allowing you to bottle with ease. It connects easily to most keg systems, and requires the hose and fittings, sold separately.

3.6 / 5.08 ReviewsIt works.Although I have been putting all of my beer into kegs for years now, I decided to give 6-pack assortments to family members for late Christmas, celebrated yesterday, 1/20. Research told me that the job would not be easy, but this was my best bet. To make a long story short, this counter pressure bottle filler does work. Plan on purchasing the tubing kit and adding a few more fittings for gas, keg in, and keg out. Allow plenty of time, but it is fun. Follow directions carefully or you will experience unintended consequences. For example, do not ignore step #1: Close all valves. Failure to do so could possible result in a few cups of beer unexpectedlyspraying onto the counter top, back wall, and floor before one figures out how to turn it off. Just an example.January 21, 2018Purchased
1 year agomine worksI've used a buddies before so I know how to use it correctly. I've had no problems with mine. Just to be safe I did disassemble and reassemble it, but I didn't find anything.January 3, 2014Took some work to get it rightI replaced the stopper and it's now working as intended.November 27, 2013takes some work but in the end its goodI completely disassembled it, thoroughly cleaned it out, and reassembled it. It now works ok, provided I use compatible bottles. Not all the empties from the recycling center work. With the right bottles its good.October 27, 2013Works well with EZ top bottlesI use my counter pressure filler with EZ top bottles and it's fine with them. It doesn't work with regular beer bottles, but that's not a problem for me. When I first got it there were problems so I disassembled it, cleaned it, and it's been working well.July 8, 2013Mixed ReviewFirst and foremost, if you buy one of these please ensure you examine it thoroughly! When I rec'd this item I did just that and saw what I thought was a hair inside the top of the tee (You can see through the top where the ball valves are). No matter what I ran through there to clean it I couldn't remove it. Turns out I had to complete disassemble the device. More disturbing than that was the fact I didn't see a hair, it was metal shavings!! Swarf from the milling process of the brass tee. It was easy to pull out, but I had to disassemble, and reassemble which I REALLY shouldn't have had to do!_x000D__x000D_Also of a MAJOR concern is that the rubber stopper does not fit some bottles. It fits my flip top bottles, but many of my regular 12oz bottles, the stopper just drops right in!! In fact, the first time I experienced that it dropped INTO the bottle and off the filler! What a pain to get that back out of the bottle!_x000D__x000D_I will say that after I got the metal shavings removed and when using it on a bottle that the stopper actually fits, it works like a champ with no foaming (just fill with chilled beer and go slow)!! If I had not experienced the two problems that I did, I would have rated it 5 stars. However, the shavings and stopper issues make me want to rate it 1 star! So I went with a middle of the road, w/3 stars.April 22, 2013Stopper issue has been resolvedThe bottle filler now works as it was intended. They replaced the stoppers with a larger size. Works great!March 29, 2013JunkThe stopper doesn't fit the 12 oz bottles that Midwest sells. Every time you fill a bottle the stopper ends up in the bottle neck. _x000D__x000D_Going to try the Blichman gun instead.February 13, 2013

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 7 answersWhere can I get a copy of the instructions for use of this counterpressure bottle filler?BEST ANSWER: I recommend the internet for some good videos. Try to do a search on how-to counter pressure bottle filler
Basic concepts are:
Blow the air out with CO2, then pressurize the bottle.
Close air in. Open liquid in. Bleed out CO2 and let beer in. Fill bottle, keeping foam to a minimum.(Go slow)
Shut off bleed valve and liquid valve.
Open Bleed valve and wait a few seconds, then remove filler and cap the bottle.
Practice with water or old beer first.Does counter pressure bottle filler come with different size stoppers?BEST ANSWER: It does not. The size stoppers my 3 came with were all the same and didn't fit my empties properly. I was able to find replacements at my local home brew store for like 50 cents a piece. The filler works great though. 1000x better than a beer gun. Just mount it to something if you can.
