Default Wing Capper Gone Wild

So, with four full fermentors ready for bottling, I go over my handlebars at 18mph and break my wrist. Dad's visiting, so I enlist his support. He's a bit of a klutz, and when we get to the point where we have 86 bottles on the counter with caps on ready to be crimped, I'm nervous. Starts out soooooo tentative and awkward, but once he thinks he gets the hang of it it's like he's dancing with that capper, and it's not a waltz, but a boogaloo. No bottles broken; nothing spilled. Wish me luck... two more batches to bottle tomorrow!

Isn't it nice to have a helper when bottling? I never had one, so I wouldn't know. That's just one reason I keg my beer now.

A helper that can cap all those bottles with no breaks... is better than no helper at all Good luck with the batches tomorrow!

I'm delighted to have his help. Besides, he loves my brews!

I'm trying to teach my dog to help me brew. But he keeps getting too drunk to help.

Good luck! (My kids used to bottle for me; kegging now).
