1 year agoThe Last Straw® and Foamless Finish™ attachment is a winning combination!After adding the Foamless Finish™ attachment I was finally able to dial in the Last Straw® counter pressure beer bottler. This setup works great and makes bottling carbonated beer from a Cornelis keg a breeze!April 9, 2018Purchased
over 3 years agoWorked very wellThis bottle filler worked very well for us. We filled at 5 PSI and very little foaming. The tip leaked at the outer housing O-ring. It looks as though the O-ring was expired and should have a fresh one. (O-rings do have shelf life) This leads me to the question in regards to the availability of spare parts - spring O-rings and the nylon compression seals in the fittings.January 12, 2018Works fine after a few trial runs. Beer is clear and well carbonated after bottling it.October 16, 2017Purchased
1 year agoExcellentI bottled a lager with the last straw a month ago. The carbonation is perfect. The unit is easy to use. I store the last straw in my keezer, I have zero foam when I bottle. For cleaning I keep a keg of sanitizer and simply flush.
This is an excellent product and well worth the money.February 5, 2017Purchased
over 3 years agoWell constructed and easy to handle works ok after after the initial learning curve.Well constructed and easy to handle and clean. Tips to keep the foam down: make sure your regulator is maintaining a consistant pressure in the keg while purging. I found using two separate regulators was the only way to do this as one of my regulator is kinda finiky. Also freezing bottles before filling will help keep the gas from flashing off and causing foam. Ultimately I ended up putting this back in the box and going with a counter pressure filler with a 3-way valve and pressure relief valve which is much easier to handle than the 3 valve versions. Looking at it from a purely thermodynamics stand point, a counter pressure filler is the only easy way to get a consistent no foam no carb loss fill.January 27, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoAmazing, Clear sediment free beer.This is an extremely fast and easy way to bottle your home brew. This bottle filler is simple to use and works with just one hand and makes bottling a breeze. It allows for consistent carbonation and perfectly clear beer in your bottles as there is no sediment from bottle conditioning. Highly recommend this product.January 22, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoOutstandingI see why its named last straw. It is one nice piece of equipment. It works perfect. You won't have to get anything different.January 6, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoNot a well-designed product.The tip of the 'straw' has three holes that cause the beer to heavily foam as it enters the bottle. Ended up with some beers being flat, most were under-carbonated. Not overly fond of this product, but it has a real nice product box?November 27, 2016It does not workI cannot under any circumstances recommend this product.
I actually hate the last straw. It's taken some joy out of my home brewing.
I've owned my last straw for over a year and it does not work as advertised.
Cold beer, cold bottles, low psi-it does not matter. FOAM, FOAM, FOAM.
I have tried everything. I've attempted to bottle several brews and it does not work. It's either all foam or 1/2 foam 1/2 beer. It never fills the bottle.
It's shoddily made, the instructions suck, but the box it comes in is really nice.
Today is the last straw for my last straw. I gave it one more shot to bottle my Thanksgiving brew and once again it failed. I give up. I'm just dragging my keg to my relative's house.
Do not buy this. Unless you really like foam, frustration, and products that don't live up to the hype.November 20, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesWe want to help!

Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 13 answersHello, I have used my filler with excellent results for about 6 months now. Recently the bottles seem to be over foaming and when the filler sits while hooked up air bubbles collect in the line as if there is a leak somewhere. Also the tip sticks closed and continues to dispense beer. I have to manually pull the tip out. Is it possible to purchase new seals and a spring to hopefully remedy this situation? ThanksBEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting us! There is a seal underneath the brass button to purge the bottles. That seal probably just needs some lubrication, try keg lube or similar food grade lubricant. It sounds like the filler needs a deep clean and that should resolve the other issues! Consider putting a dip tube brush through the liquid tube.I carbonated in keg, chilled to 35 degrees, used the last straw and filled my bottles. They are all flat. Beer was properly carbonated and pouring quite nicely from the tap.Any ideas what went wrong?BEST ANSWER: A couple tips:
* make sure the bottles are cold
* use o2 absorbing caps
* make sure to lay down a proper bed of co2 before you fill
* make sure you cap tightly
* make sure they are filled up enough (reduce headspace)
if you quick carbed the keg, it's possible that it was pouring nicely from the tap but didn't retain all of the co2, so it seemed fully carbed but wasn't. If it's borderline out of the tap it will be flat once bottled.
So, I can't answer your specific issue because there are too many undescribed variables, but hopefully this helped.Would I be able to use this to fill high pressure wine bottles after force carbonating the wine in a corny keg?BEST ANSWER: Sure, a person carbonate wine in a Corny keg, and then fill "Champagne" bottles and cap them. The main caution would be that they must be Champagne-type bottles that can hold pressure, and not regular wine bottles. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesAre there spare parts available, two tip valve O-rings, and the little spring in the tip valve for example? Also there are a few O-rings in the CO2 valve too. Any spares available?Does it need to carbonate in a keg for a bit or can you carbonate while bottling?BEST ANSWER: Yes, this allows transfer of your carbonated beer into your bottles.When you do bottle, is it for longer term storage? ie. past a few days/weeks. I'm looking as using this as an end to my filtering and bottleling. I don't own a kegorator, just bottle.BEST ANSWER: This is actually a mostly true statement. I'm using a keg largely to force carb, but still prefer to have most of each batch in bottles. This allows me to keep a wider variety of bottled beer on hand at all times...ready to drink, or grab and take to a friends house, etc.Is it recommended to chill the bottles in a freezer or refrigerator before filling with Last Straw?BEST ANSWER: It is not required. Having the bottles close to the temperature of the beer is a fine way to try and avoid foaming and would be a recommended step to improve performance. This unit does a great job without chilling the bottles so only resort to that if you are not getting as good of results as you would like. I hope this helps! Cheers! James J.
