I use different ones (I drink alot of different beers). I was looking at a bench capper. Which brand did you get?

My wife bought me the red super agata (spelling?) one from northern brewer so far so good. Plus it's only like 35 or 40 bucks unlike the other one they have for twice that.

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.

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.
