Great quality for the price
Great capper - you really feel that the cap is properly sealed when you've capped a bottle.  Very solid construction.

The only thing I find oddly inadequate considering how sturdy everything else is that the handle that tightens the body to the post is a bit flimsy and I'm worried I'll break it when tightening it down.

Easy solution for stubborn bar tops!
Well made, easy-to-use problem solver. Love it when a simple tool makes the job more pleasant and speeds it up, too!

This sucker is great!
I run the brewing side of a 10 barrel brew pub. From time to time we do bottle releases. Started out with a Colona capper, then a plastic benchtop capper. The process was inefficient until I came across this capper. Now I can cap and fill at the same time with a perfect seal every time. I've done 500 bottles so far with zero sign of wear and tear. I highly recommend this capper!

Awesome!!
Don't know what else to say about this capper, but awesome! I had a Ferrari capper which doesn't even match up to this one, When I needed a replacement for the Ferrari, I bought another Ferrari, but this new one didn't work at all when I received it, so after that I bit the bullet and bought this one which is all metal and should last a long time. It works great, easy and it is robust...

Totally Awesome
This capper is totally awesome! I only wish I had upgraded to it earlier. With prior cappers I always had issues getting the crowns to go on tight. In fact, some bags of caps wouldn't work at all - even with trying different cappers and different types of bottles. Not so with this capper! Each and every crown is seated solidly and with minimal effort. It actually makes bottling fun again.

On the technical side:
Capper is a good 20 pounds so it doesn't shift around. It can easily be used without bolting to a bench top.
Height is easily adjusted with a simple swing 'bolt arm'.
There is a magnet inside the plunger, plus the magnet is spring loaded. So, as you pull the arm down and contact the bottle, the crown is kept in place with mild pressure while the edges are crimped. This prevents excessive pressure from being applied to the bottle.
Switching from 26mm to 29mm takes seconds, just unscrew one and put on the other.

Can't recommend this capper enough!

Can it also cap small bottles (187 ml)?
It will cap any bottle that accepts a standard 26mm or 29mm crimp bottle cap. This model lets you go as low as you want, so height should not be an issue.

Does this work with a twist off crown cap?
No it works with pry off crowns. It will work with a cap intended for a twist off bottle, as long as you are bottling in pry off glass bottles.

Can you cap 750ml, 22 oz bombers and is the cap size of 26mm and 29mm pretty standard cap size for those bottles I mentioned before and also what is your return policy if it does not work out for us out here at KettleHouse Brewing. Thank you for your time
This capper will work with 750ml and 22 oz bottles. The standard for commercial beer bottles in the USA is 26mm. The 29mm caps are for Belgian ale or European Champagne bottles. We offer a 60 day trial period. If you return the item within the 60 day period we will issue a full refund less shipping.
