The Cannular is a manual can seamer that is easy to use, reliable, and beautifully simple.

Whether you're a brewery looking to offer canned beer to go or a homebrewer wanting to keep your creations fresh and fully protected from light, the Cannular is the answer. This bench top unit is one of the most compact and easy to use can seamers you'll find. The Cannular only requires one person to operate, and each can takes roughly 5 seconds to seam. With a two-person team, one filling and one seaming, the Cannular becomes a suitable option for nano breweries doing small canning production runs.
 
The Cannular's table spacer is specifically designed to work with 500ml (16.9 oz) Can Fresh aluminum cans (CAN150).  330ml (11.2 oz) Can Fresh cans are also available (CAN133), but you will need the correct table spacer to use them with the seamer (CAN103). We have tested standard 202 cans and have been able to achieve good seals with proper adjustments.  It is necessary to adjust the table height to ensure you have the appropriate amount of pressure applied when the can lift is raised.
 
Operation:
The beauty of the Cannular lies in how truly simple it is to operate. With only three points of operation, it only takes a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the machine. The seaming process is as follows:
  • Place lid atop the can and place the can on the table spacer
  • Turn the platform lever clockwise to raise the can to the seamer
  • Press the button to turn the machine on and begin spinning the can
  • Push the seaming lever away from you and hold for 1-2 seconds
  • Pull the seaming lever towards you and hold for 1-2 seconds
  • Press the button to turn off the machine and stop spinning the can
  • Turn the platform lever counterclockwise to lower the can

That's all there is to it!

Construction:
The Cannular was designed to be compact, durable, and safe to operate in a wet environment. The platform assembly is made from 304 grade stainless steel, so no matter how messy your canning gets, there's no need to worry about rusting or degradation. The body of the unit is made from hammered sheet metal and fastened together with stainless steel screws. Rubber feet help keep the unit from slipping and sliding while in use. In addition, the Cannular features built-in brackets near the feet so you have the option to mount the machine to your counter or benchtop. The Cannular runs off of 24V DC power via the Anderson socket located on the back. This lower voltage was chosen specifically to make the unit as safe to use in a wet environment as possible.
 
Power:
As noted above, the Cannular comes with a 24V DC Anderson socket located on the back of the unit. It does not, however, include a cord and plug. When purchasing the unit, you have the option of pairing it with either a power supply with 110V plug (CAN101), or with a 6 ft. long cord with Anderson plug and alligator clips (CAN102). The power supply is straight forward, and allows you to plug the unit into a standard 110V power socket. The alligator clips give you the option to power the unit from a battery, and can even be used with an 18V cordless power drill battery. This is certainly the most affordable option for powering the Cannular, and we've found that upwards of 200 cans can be seamed on a single battery charge.  
 
Why Cans?
So why can when you can bottle? There's no doubt that canning has become a more and more popular format for packaging beer among craft breweries over the last several years, and with good reason. Aluminum cans aren't just more environmentally friendly than bottles, since cans require less energy to transport and recycle, they're also much better at protecting the quality of the beer. Whereas bottles allow in light, which leads to skunking, aluminum cans offer 100% protection from UV and other wavelengths of light that are harmful to beer. There's still great debate surrounding whether cans or bottles are better at keeping beer fresh, but if done correctly, cans are theoretically the superior option. When a crown cap is crimped onto a bottle, the lining of the cap can form an imperfect seal on the bottle, allowing small amounts of oxygen in, as well as small amounts of CO2 out. Over time this can result in oxidation of the beer and lost carbonation. Seamed cans, on the other hand, form a much better seal that can prevent these issues. Of course, it's important to make sure that the can is purged of oxygen before being filled, and that the can lid is sealed atop foam to eliminate oxygen from the headspace. Aside from all the "sciency stuff", cans are just plain safer. Take your beer backpacking, camping, or poolside and rest assured that broken glass won't ruin your day!
 
Specifications:
  • Power: 250W 24V DC
  • Rated Speed: 3300 RPM
  • Gearbox Ratio: 9.8 : 1
  • Dimensions: 14" L x 9" W x 19.5" H
  • Weight: 40 lbs
*Please note: the table spacer included with the Cannular is specifically designed to use Can Fresh 500ml aluminum cans, which are 167.8mm tall and 52.4mm in diameter.  See below under "You Might Also Need" for an additional table spacer that can be purchased to make the seamer compatible with 330ml cans.
 
**Note 2: When you receive your cannular the rollers have been set and tested at the factory. They should not need adjustment for 100,000 cans. The table, however, comes unadjusted and getting it set up correctly is very important to getting a proper seal. Cannular's test show that a .4mm (.015") actual overlap is all that is needed to seal to 90 PSI. The proper table tension takes a little practice and expect to waste a few cans getting it dialed in. Once you learn the proper tension re-adjusting it is very quick and easy. You want the tension to be tight but not so tight as to dent the can. Use cans at your fill height with water for proper tension adjustment.

What cans are able to be seamed with the Cannular seamer out of the box? The pictures and video appear to be seaming a 16oz can and no accessories are shown. Is the Cannular able to seam 12oz cans out of the box or are additional accessories needed for 12oz cans? Will MoreBeer be selling empty cans as well?
Michael Cox on May 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael - 16oz cans can be seamed right out of the box. To use 12oz cans, the adapter's SKU will be CAN103. Also, MoreBeer will be carrying fresh cans, but we do not have an ETA as to when they will be available.
When is this machine going to be available?
John Milne on Jun 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi John - We do not have a guaranteed ETA as to when the can seamer will be available at this time, but an educated opinion would be sometime between July and August is when we should receive them from the supplier.
Can this do crowlers (32oz cans) as well?
Garrett Delano on Jul 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Garrett - This unit is only compatible with 16.9oz cans. However, 12oz cans may be used with the adapter: CAN103.
Will this be available for pre-order or will we have to wait for it to be in stock?
Kevin Noall on Jun 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will be available for a pre-order. Unfortunately we won't put it up for pre-sale until we get an ETA form our supplier.
Can you "can condition" i.e. bottle condition to carbonate beer in the can?
Robert C Beal on Dec 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why you couldn't in theory. I generally consider these cans to have about the lifespan of a "crowler" from a brewery though...maybe a week or two. I could be wrong, and depending on the conditions under which you can, you could probably make it work. If it were me though, I'd invest in a kegging setup first. If you already have a keg setup and are just looking to bottle condition beer, I'd stick to bottles.
Are replacement bearings for the turntable available?
John M Rixner on Apr 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi John - You can find replacement bearings for the turntable under item # CAN207, we currently have one more available in our east cost warehouse.
Will there be a spacer produced that will allow for standard, US sized 16oz pint 202 lid cans?
Matt White on Apr 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They include a fitting for 16 oz cans with the system and are developing or just released a fitting for 12 oz cans. Otherwise, Im sure that they will be adding more fittings as the demand for other sizes increases.

This is a one trick pony. You MUST use the cans and lids it is factory set for. Don't plan to make any tooling changes to accommodate any other can sizes.

A spacer for standard US Pint (160z) 202 cans would make this perfect
I'm happy with my cannular. Took me a few hours to get it set up, but now it's seaming well. Build quality is good. Here's my main issue (and, by the way, if they sort this out, I'll come back and give a full five stars): it's built in Australia so it's really meant to work with European sized cans, 500ml and 200ml. That means you're locked into their cans. Despite that they sell it as compatible with all 202 cans. Even the product description is misleading saying "we've tested it with standard 202 style cans and achieved good seals with some adjustments". In the US we'd interpret that as working with standard US-style 16oz pint 202 lid cans, right? Well, that's not the case. The standard spacer is a hair too short for 16oz pint cans. The 200ml spacer is too tall. The base is adjustable, just not far enough to make it work. We were able to jury-rig the base platform to raise up just enough to get them to seal but that's not the most elegant solution. Basically, if they were to make a spacer for American 16oz pint cans (202 lids) this thing would be an absolute steal. Imagine being able to get any kind of 202 can and seam it up! That would be a gamechanger and I'd happily come back and give it the 5 stars it deserves at that point. Fingers crossed.

Works like a charm!
Got this to expand my home brew operation as a way to save and/or gift away my best batches. So easy to use. Worked right out of the box! I did a few test cans using water just to get the hang of it. From there, piece of cake. It’s really awesome showing up to a buddy’s house with a 4-pack of your own beer! Suggest watching a few YouTube videos before, as the unit does not come with instructions. Also, the need to buy a power supply separately is a little odd and adds to the price. But, the result is way worth it.

Revolutionary Change? Or short term distraction
I received the Cannular as a B-day gift from my family. My interest in this was to better distribute my liquid creations to family and friends and not rely on just kegs and growlers or have cases of bottles everywhere.

While I've only had 2 weeks, here are Cons and Pros.

Cons;
- Why it does not come with the power supply is confusing, and the additional cost is annoying.
- They should include at least a dozen cans for initial setup/tuning of the plates. They should also tell you to use water or beer you don't care about while getting it dialed in
- I had 3 occurrences in the 1st 30/40 cans where the height became unadjusted and either crushed a can or mis aligned a lid. I finally started back from scratch and was able to pinpoint the final adjustment.
- Operationally this thing is messy, the "splash radius" is about 8 ft and your wife will NOT be happy if you get beer on her kitchen ceiling. (see more below)
- it is difficult to move around if you do not have a dedicated space, it needs handles
- Can cost is quite expensive$.48/can vs. wholesale price of commercial cans (my local brewery get's their crowlers for <$.25)

Pro's
- CANS!!
- Impresses your friends
- Easy operation once adjustments are made
- Great size for both operation and storage
- Durable, well made and constructed with excellent materials
- Excellent on-line materials for support and operation (just search Cannular on Youtube)

Recommendations;
- Place Towel(s) underneath and over unit while using to avoid messy splashing
- Invest in a Beer Gun/Last Straw or other counter pressure filler
-- i.e., do not pour from keg tap as it get's too much foam (not full enough can) and creates more mess
- Use carbonated water during initial calibration and adjustment (don't abuse alcohol)

To Be Determined
- How long do the can's hold pressure?
- Can I "bottle condition" specific beers in the can (specially Belgian styles)?
- How often are adjustments necessary?
- Are the can costs worth the long term investment?
- What is the best way to label?

Overall, I am not displeased. I feel 4 stars is the proper rating given some of the setup challenges and the additional costs necessary to use the unit long term. Time will tell if this is the next big thing for homebrewing or just the latest toy.

Great canner
I was told I may have to use a few cans to get Cannular adjusted. I sealed one can and it was perfectly sealed.

Great Budget Canner with a caveat
If you buy this with the expectation of tuning it, then it is a 5 star product. It does the job wonderfully once you've tuned the rollers.

My model needed a 3/4" socket for the roller nuts. A long one is handy as the belt is somewhat in the way and you need the leverage to move it out of the way.

I ended up sourcing a similar power supply off of Amazon to save some money. I bought the Anderson cable and cut and stripped the pig tail ends to tie into this:

LETOUR LED Power Supply 24V 15A 360W

If you aren't handy then just buy their whole PSU package.

A set of feeler gauges are recommended for tuning. But as a ghetto mechanical engineer I used my calipers and post it notes to tune the spacing.

Once you get your cans sealed dip them in a bucked of sanitizer and check for bubbles. Rotate it a bit as some bubbles will escape from the outer seam. Then pull it out and if it was actively bubbling under water or foaming outside of the bucket you still have tuning to do. If not? Success.

This is a great deal even though it requires about an hours worth of work.

Also another tip- if filing with a beer gun, remember that the technique is relying on a blanket of c02 that the beer pushes out of the can when filling. When you remove the beer gun tip from the can the level drops and air is dragged into the can. So when you near the end of the fill, raise the gun so just the tip is in the beer and the displacement is less.

This is very important for canning NEIPAs. No O2.

Also when canning don't squeeze the cans while handling. If you squeeze the can before you seal it and it pops in and out you are displacing c02 and air will replace it. So handle the cans with care when moving from your filling area to the canner.

Can seamer.
Not bad. Set up easy, no instructions to set up for accurate seam. Had to watch the video that shows the guy using it to figure out the height adjustment. Went through 4 cans before I obtained water tight seam. No instructions = 4 stars.
Not gonna lie, first canned beer made me grin a little.
It looks like they are going to make dies for 12 cans. But for now the 16 oz is fine.
