Default Perlick Growler fillers.



Our Perlick 525SS Growler fillers have arrived. 304 Stainless. From now until the end of the month simply drop by in Mitchell to pick one up with no purchase necessary. If you can not make it over simply ask for one in the order comments box of a purchase and we will be happy to put one in for you. Retail price after the month is over will be comparable to our standard faucet growler filler.

Initial tests have been pour-fect! We would love to get some of these out and get some feedback.



Limit one per person.

USER REVIEWS:
I got mine today, I love it, great for taking some beer to a friends and to give people samples...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks again for the shipment. They are really cool. My one comment would be to perhaps have a slightly bigger bevel on the tip, or perhaps a rounded edge, since I could feel a bit of scraping when I inserted it. Otherwise, I'm digging it!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is quick and easy to use. When I have a visitor who likes my
beer, I can QUICKLY give him some to bring home. Ideally, I can
have a small container of starsan nearby. It is VERY fast to
sanitize the device and growler/bottle, then fill it. I am able
to tell someone at the door... "Hold on a minute." then run down
and come back with a growler for him.

I didn't even have to lessen the pressure in my kegs. When I
normally want to fill things, I have to:
clean/sanitize an additional hose with a picnic tap
release pressure in keg
fill bottles.
With a process like that, I am less likely to give away a bottle
or two.

East to clean, easy to install, does not leak.

Some of my kegs are pin-lock, and some are ball lock.
If I want to bottle a couple of each, there are no issues
of having the wrong connector. I can quickly switch from
one to another.

I had some excess foam in the first one I filled, but not
since then.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey Patrick. The growler filler you sent me works great! No leaks and it's a nice tight fit to the tap. My only complaint is my double tower (on top of a mini fridge)
isn't really tall enough to comfortablely fill a growler. It ends up only getting 3/4 full because you need to tilt the growler quite a bit to get it off.
It would work best on a custom keezer or a kegerator with taps on the door where you could hold the growler vertical as you took the filler out.
But there are no issues with the actual filler. Good work! -Ty
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ty, you can always replace the hose with a longer one to solve that issue. Thanks for the feedback.

Can be found on Ebay under "growler filler" $11.99 shipped and in stock.

Thanks Cougargt. We sent boxes of these parts all over the country to every Brew-club that asked for them on our facebook page. The MOB (Ottawa area club: Members of Barleyment) sent a whack load of reviews back. Thanks guys. Going to post there reviews below, it will speak better then I can for the product:

---------------------------------
Quick and simple to use.
Very easy to clean (just run water through/over it). Easy to sanitize if
needed.
Didn't leak a single drop at the tap.
I got a bit too much foaming in the bottle like a couple of others (keg
pressure ~7 PSI). Next time I'll "dispose" of the first bit into a glass.
Overall worked very well. I'll get a lot of use out of it.

------------------

I fill bottles from kegs quite often for bringing to friends' houses. I've
never been able to fill a bottle directly from a perlick without getting
too much foaming.
Instead, I'd sanitize a picnic tap, hose and fitting, and a racking cane.
I'd shove the racking cane into the picnic tap, and insert that all the way
to the bottom of my bottle, then fill from that. I always found it a bit of
a pain, as the picnic taps need to be disassembled to be cleaned and
sanitized.

This perlick filler makes the process much faster, as it cleans and
sanitizes in seconds since there's nothing to disassemble. It's also nice
to not have to swap disconnects on the keg to use it. I just turned the
regulator down to 2 or 3 psi, bled the pressure from the keg, inserted the
filler into the tap, and filled the bottle. It worked really well.
I experimented a bit with CO2 pressure, and I found that I could turn down
the CO2 too much, so that the beer would barely flow and it looked like
there was air in the hose with the beer. By turning up the CO2 pressure
slightly, I was able to get a fill without air entering the hose and
without foaming issues.

My only concern with using this filler is that the inside of the perlick
tap is not sanitized. This certainly isn't an issue when bottling a beer
that will be consumed within a day or two, but I would not use this method
for long-term storage.

Overall, this filler is very simple, works very well, and simplifies my
bottle filling.

------------------
I like how easy it is to clean, sanitize and use. Cellar temperature beer
might be too warm for it to work well. Need to try it with a cold keg
next. might take me a couple of days.

--------------------------------
I put mine to a real test this morning: bottled overcarbonated witbier without bleeding the keg. I found that, after priming the tube so that it wasn't full of foam to start with, it worked pretty well, only the neck of the bottle had foam. Of course I just kept filling (yes, I spilled a little beer) and was able to quickly fill the bottles, even though I made a mess. It fits perfectly into my taps with no real force needed to insert it, but it wasn't loose either. My only issue is that after I've filled the bottle, there's quite a bit of liquid in the tube. Since the tube is longer than my drip tray, there beer in the tube ends up on the floor. I'm not sure of any solution to this. I don't really care since my floor is painted cement and my beer fridge is right in front of a drain. Overall,a good product for sure.

--------------------------------
My own personal choice; I love it, a could happily have spent money on it as it's exceptionally easily to clean, fits my perlicks beautifully, produces the right amount of head for growlers or bottles.
Takes a bit of getting used to to reduce spill when I disconnect it from the tap, but it's making me glad I have drip trays on my keezer. I can imagine kegerator/tower tap users may find it slightly more painful to use, but longer tube would help fix that issue.

What size are the o-rings on the filler? I tore one today and I would like to grab a pack from a grainger near my house.

We are using a 6mm ID with 10mm OD with 2mm width.

Did you pick yours up from our 11.99 free shipping to the USA Ebay ad?

Thanks!

Yes, I got mine from the eBay ad. It fits nice and snug, it might not have ripped if I wet the end before putting it in the faucet.

I have been asked and yup. Works with the new level of Perlick 525's.

Can drill a stopper for growlers and do the burping counter pressure fill with these as well for about an extra .49 cents at a hardware store.

Do these work with the compliment for the Bowie Bottler?
