Description

We think our Counter Pressure Bottle Filler is the best on the market, and the Deluxe Counter Pressure Filler takes a proven design to the next level by adding a pressure gauge for monitoring bottle pressure and flared connections for easy cleaning.

The gauge on this counter pressure bottle filler allows you to know the pressure in your bottle, an incredibly handy feature. The flared connections allow for easy cleaning as you can connect on or disconnect your lines in a matter of seconds. Traditionally these lines can be difficult to sanitize because they were permanently connected with hose clamps.

Still has all the great feature of our original
All Stainless Construction (except for a brass backing on the pressure gauge)
A true Counter Pressure Filler (for less foaming)
Easy to use Stainless 3-way ball valve on top
Adjustable Stainless pressure release on side
Flushes bottle from the bottom not the top


What is a Counter Pressure Filler? If you currently carbonate and store your homebrew in kegs, you can use a counter pressure filler to bottle beer directly from your kegs. One huge advantage of this method is that since you are bottling already carbonated, clear beer, there will be no sediment at the bottom of your bottles.

Counter pressure filling is how a brewery bottles beer. The bottle is under pressure while the carbonated beer flows in. Because the interior of the bottle is pressurized there is minimal loss of the CO2 in solution. The opposite of filling under pressure is when you pour a beer into a pint glass where CO2 erupts out of solution creating all that foam. Great in your glass but not good when you are trying to bottle carbonated beer. Our counter pressure filler mimics a single filling head on a professional bottling line, a concept that we all know works very, very well.


Features While some models flush the bottle from the top and fill from the bottom, our unit features a special valve that allows CO2 and beer to flow down the same stainless tube, directly to the bottom of the bottle. First CO2 flows down into the bottom of the bottle to flush from the bottom up. Next you switch the valve position and beer flows down the same tube, filling from the bottom up. The result is a more effective purging of oxygen and no foam during the filling process - not to mention that the whole thing takes one-hand to operate! Why hope that you flushed your bottle properly using a type of beer gun, when you can know for sure that you have created the best environment for your beer to be stored at by using a Counter Pressure Bottle Filler?

More Details
The unit is inserted into the bottle in the off position. The valve is then turned to CO2 to flush the bottle and then to beer for filling. The adjustable pressure relief on the side of the unit allows you control the speed of fill by adjusting the pressure in the bottle. The valve is positioned in such a way that it is easy to use with one hand, while the other holds the bottle. This model is designed for 12oz bottles but can easily be extended to accommodate larger bottles, such as 22oz, with a small piece of 1/4" tubing.

Setting Your PSI Pressure

Before you counter pressure fill a bottle make sure you are satisfied with the carbonation level and flavor. The goal for counter pressure bottle filling is to store your beer in the most sanitary and clean environment possible so when you get ready to share your homebrew its presentation is perfect when you go to pour.

An ideal set point to set your PSI level on your regulator is 10-14 psi. This range is dependent upon the temperature of your beer and the carbonation level. We recommend you start at a lower pressure around 10psi for the first 2-3 bottles to make sure you get everything dialed in before committing to filling a whole case.

Make sure your keg is always kept cold. If your keg warms up you will have foaming issues.

Better than faking it with a stopper and a picnic tap
First off: it works, and it works pretty well. I needed something better than a picnic tap and a tube for bottling root beer and preserving the carbonation. I tried using a stopped and easing off the seal to make my own version of a counter pressure filler, which kinda worked, but I broke two picnic taps in the process, made a big mess, and it was just all-around clumsy. This does a much better job.

I docked a star because it's kinda tedious to fill bottles this way; the tube is a little bit too long (In fact, it had poked through the box during delivery. And as it is, it's a little long for 12oz bottles and I have to set it at an angle to get the stopper to seat. I'll probably cut a quarter or half inch off the tip of the tube); and the stopper seems a tad soft.

But it does what it advertises, and now I have bubbly bottled root beer.

Works well
Fills bottles fast and with just the right amount of head space each time. Only issue I have is that the valve does leak some CO2 when in the off position.

The unit is fine but the instructions could have been clearer for a first time user. It took some trial and error to get it right.

Fill bottles better - less foam, more consistent fill
Works great. Contact between rubber stopper and tube could be tighter as there seems to be some leakage, but not a big deal.

Missing Stopper
I just received this yesterday and was a little disappointed there was no stopper in the package as advertised. Now I have to purchase a stopper before I can try it. Other than that it seems like a good piece of equipment.

Works like a dream
Everything you'd want in a counter-pressure filler. I have used other models in the past and this one is smooth sailing, plain and simple. A few thoughts / recommendations:
(1) Throw the whole thing, with your bottles, in with your beer the morning you're going to bottle. If everything is at that same cold temp, your foaming issues will be minimized.
(2) Heed instructions about maintenance. There are easy ways to adjust and maintain the pressure relief valve and the 3-way ball valve that sits atop the unit. I've read other reviews of people who had small issues with these parts - but it's clear they didn't read the instructions, unfortunately.
(3) If at all possible, get a partner to do the capping. It is worth putting off for a day if you can have that extra set of hands around to help.
(4) Relax, don't worry, and have a homebrew!

Great Item
I got this because I had issues with my blichmann filler always giving me flat beer. This counter pressure filler has never let me down and it is easy to clean. Sold the blichmann and never looked back. Thanks
