DetailsThis slick unit can be used for bottling both still & sparkling wine. 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.

5 months agoGreat ProductI love this bottle filler. It has speeded up my operation for a home wine maker. If it ever breaks for any reason I would order another immediately. I did have a crack in one that was shipped, but Midwest didn’t ask any questions just shipped me another. Great people gray product. Thanks DennisFebruary 10, 2019Purchased
6 months agoDoes not match the photo !!!This a great unit, but the ones sent to me don't match the selling photo. You only get the one cap that has a tube connecting port on the cap, the photo shows the unit without the tube connecting cap which is for bottling regular wines. I purchased one a couple months ago and then contacted the company and they sent me a new one but the exact same item. There are suppose to be two caps, one for the sparkling wines and one for regular wines. Otherwise this would get 5 stars. I asked the lady at the service dept if the unit comes with both caps, didn't get a very good answer and she was quick to volunteer shipping another to me free.February 8, 2019Purchased
6 months agoVery helpful accessoryI read a lot of the reviews, and agree using this bottle filler can be tricky and my first experience was messy to say the least. My wine seemed to have a lot of CO-2 in it, and wine and gas wanted to escape through the top. I did 2 things that made all the difference, I ran a hose from the top into a empty wine bottle to vent, and I shortened the distance I was siphoning so the wine had less pressure. After doing those things, it has worked really well and speeds up bottling tremendously.April 13, 2018Purchased

1 year agoResponse from Midwest SuppliesThanks for the review. I am sorry that it did not come with instructions as you had hoped. The filler works with a 5/16"-1/2" tubing. One end of the tubing connects to the filler, the other your bottling vessel. Once it is hooked up, open the spigot on the bottling vessel and push down the button on the filler. That will start the flow into the bottle. The filler will automatically stop when the bottle has been filled. Our customer service team is happy to help if you have additional questions.November 7, 2017Todd J StaffWell worth the $15 costProbably reduced my bottling time by a third, allowed me to cork one while filling the next bottle.
Also works as a siphon starter, no bottling bucket required! Place it in a bottle, inhale through the little tube that sticks out the top, and it will start the siphon for you!
(the written Instructions weren't all that great, check youtube for videos demonstrating use.)April 6, 2017Works great from my Fast Fermenter.Works great from my Fast Fermenter. Very little spill now days.January 24, 2017Purchased

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 16 answersCan this be used with a siphon?BEST ANSWER: It is a siphon, and yes it can be used with a siphon. Issue is - using a large tube can siphon faster without the auto bottle filler because the fillers pipe is smaller so it's goes a bit slower, but the fillers benefit is stopping flow in bottle automatically due to loss of air. For siphoning from carboy or barrel, use largest tube / pipe you can find. For bottle filling, get largest tube that fits bottle filler. Hope this helps.Have one of these, it keeps spitting out of the top. I try to adjust it with the top button. Any suggestions. Thanks.BEST ANSWER: I use the Ferrari bottle filer all the time when bottling wine. It does spit out the top sometimes I found that the bottom has to be securely put in neck of bottle if not air has a chance to enter causing updraft.Can this product be used in brewing beer?BEST ANSWER: Yes it can but it would add a lot of oxygen to the beer. We do not recommend it.
