End of broken bottles
by:Leaning dog brew (03-30-2016)
Morgan hill, ca
Comments:Finally an end to broken necks, must have this if you use a batwing type that pinches the necks. This won't break and waste beer or bottles
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Surprisingly durable

Comments:I have never bottled with this. Turns out that it is also used with a certain brand of lab distillation tube. Mine is 15 years old, used regularly with some of the harshest chemicals around, and still going strong. I can't speak to how well it bottles, but I've turned that lever thousands and thousands of times and it's never failed.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

So much better

Comments:I have bottled one 5 gallon batch with this capper and it is a huge improvement over my old blue bat-wing capper. It is faster and easier to operate and because it pushes from the top and the bottom of the bottle rather than gripping it around the neck, it seems less likely to snap the neck off a bottle (I did that twice over about 12 batches with my old capper.) The only thing I don't like is that the bell continues to grip the cap after it has been pressed on and you need to wrestle with it a bit to get the capped bottle released. But it is not too bad a problem and still the whole process is faster and easier. The product is about 95% plastic. Unlike my old capper which seemed like it might break everytime I torqued down on a cap, the Colonna feels like it will last forever.

Please note that there are two different Colonna Bench Cappers on the market that look almost the same. This model only has a bell that fits standard American beer caps. There is a more expensive model that has interchangeable bells for European bottle caps and will also press wine corks. This model meets my needs but be aware that there are different models.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
