2.2 / 5.05 Reviewsparts fall offThe first time I tried it a small piece fell of the valve popped off and was lost.
I was sent a new foamless finish and had the same issue. Lost the same piece when it fell off.February 3, 2017Not worth itIt just doesn't work. At first, I had a bad seal on the gas line tube which caused beer to leak out of joint on the valve. I fixed that with some Teflon tape, but even after that it still didn't produce results that were worth spending the $50. The main problem is stability. If the Last Straw tubes were solidly locked into place then perhaps this would work, but the tubes twist occasionally, changing the angle and widening the gap that is cut into the stopper. So the air would leak out of the gap or anywhere except the valve where it was supposed to. The construction of the compression ring is designed so that you as you hold the bottle filler normally, with the lines down, you cannot see the grove that is supposed to catch a rim. VERY ANNOYING. And it doesn't compress much at all; it is still able to slide up and down which means even the pressure of the bottle will cause it to slide so you have to hold it, but unless you push down perfectly strait it will break the seal against the tubes. The foam will form and then when you let go you get a nice splash of foam EVERYWHERE, including your face. NOT WORTH THE BUY.December 21, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesWe are sorry to hear that you do not love the Foamless Finish Counterpressure Filler for the Last Straw. We would like to see if there is something that we can help with because of how much we like this thing. This was designed with some flex to allow the valve to open. The tubes shouldn't be moving /twisting under normal operation. One quick tip is to make sure that the bottles are not over-filled. That could be the cause of beer coming through the Foamless Finish and also could the cause of the foam splash. We will be reaching out to you to help us better understand the issues you are describing. If you would rather call us, you can do so at 1-888-449-2739.January 30, 2017Todd J StaffI don't see any differenceAfter fussing with this darn thing I still don't see a single difference, I have no idea what the pressure is supposed to be but it's VERY LOW from what I can feel coming out of the valve. I had high hopes for this little device.January 25, 2017Response from Midwest SuppliesThanks for the review. It sounds like we have an appointment set-up to see if we can successfully troubleshoot the Foamless Finish. We hope that the product meets your expectations and hopes once that happens.January 30, 2017Todd J StaffGood itemI used it two times since I bought it and work fine

1 year agofoamless finish is a bit of a stretchit definitely cut down on the foam when filling, however, calling it a "foamless finish" is a bit of a stretch. I'll definitely continue to use it though.March 27, 2018Purchased

Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 3 answersdo you have a video showing how it performs? i was looking on youtube but didn't see one.BEST ANSWER: I'll post one once I get it woking. Midwest has been wonderful in troubleshooting my issues with it.After receiving this I was disassembling it to clean it. Some piece or pieces went flying. I later found a piece of the pressure relief valve but I feel that something else is missing. Maybe a spring. Anyone have any info as to what the valve pieces consist of?So, has this thing been trouble shot, and as a result, redesigned to actually work yet?BEST ANSWER: Although you still get some foaming it is a vast improvement. A little tricky to install but it definitely helps the beer hold carbonation when bottling.Is it big enough to fit growler bottles?BEST ANSWER: Yup, fits my smaller and larger growlers.could you please add a video?, looks like good thing, but we need to believe it,
