that is great news for those that have the red baron capper. i just bottled a batch last night and had major problems with my capper on the Franzi, Spaten, and Dos Equis bottles. we ended up just using man power to push down on the bottle and help the capper do its thing.
however, i am having problems now with how to get those metal teeth out and flipped around. they seem to be bolted in there into the plastic. how did you get them out with needle nose pliers?
