I didn't know that about the black ones. Thanks.

I have 2 red ones and they have 1/2 moons on both sides of the metal plate.

I use the one on the far right, only problem I've had is that mine is a bit cheap, got it for 10 bucks. The little red stopper at the top doesn't work so well so I have to occasionally readjust as I'm capping. Not as big a headache as the hand cappers, that's for sure. I have capped a few twist offs with success, but I'm too paranoid to risk all my hard work so I don't use them for my homebrew.

My point in saying there are different neck sizes is that not all European or Asian beer bottles are to an American standard size (if there is such a thing).

I have both, but the majority of my bottles are 1/2 liter German flippies. The others are just 1/2 liter German bottles. I have never had a problem with European or American bottles including Bud longnecks.

Is that picture pre- or post your son passing his driving test?

I use a medieval capper...it's a hand capper with hammer deal...I'm always worrying about clouting the capper too hard, smashing a bottle and accidentally slitting my wrists

Are the two handled hand cappers not good then?
