Had some issues last night with my capper (black hand capper) Broke 6 bottles and I hate wasting beer. What has worked for folks out there in brew land?
Same problem so I bought a bench capper. Also what bottled you use? The only ones I ever broke we're Sam Adams bottles. Cut me almost to the bone
I am looking at that one. Thanks for the opinion. Cheers
If you think you might be bottling wine, mead, or champagne/Belgian corks you may consider really biting the bullet and buying the Ferrari Corker with the capper attachment. http://www.homebrewit.com/aisle/p/4040
It's one of those things that seems like a real pain to have to buy, but that you end up using for the rest of your life.
I also broke bottles all the time with the black capper that came with my kit. My grandfather gave me a red one that came with his kit and I was able to do a whole batch without breaking any.
