These look kind of interesting. You carbonate your bottles upside down...the sediment settles in the reservoir, then you close the valve and remove the sediment reservoir.

You now have clear beer in the bottle. Pretty expensive at $4 (Australian) each though.

If you leave your brew in the secondary to clear and don't get greedy racking to the bottling bucket you would not need these...

Yeah, plus you can "drink straight from the stubby." And just a mere $192 for two cases worth of bottles.

Or, we can just learn to pour our beer properly!

That would be a Stubbie not a "stubby" mate.

Fact: Brodie is Gaelic for "Muddy Place".

Kinda fitting. Ya' think?

There are many more practical ways to clear beer but hey, it's your $216.00 per 5 gallons.

I have no idea what they call bottles "down there," just directly quoting the website. Drinking from the bottle is a bad idea though, no matter what we call it.

cool idea but the price is insane! I can't imagine sales are good at that price. at $1 each they might be a viable option. I think I'd spend the money on kegging.

But you're still going to have sediment any time you're bottle conditioning.

drinking good beer from a bottle is like putting ketchup on filet mingon....you just don't.

beer NEEDS the proper glass, as to present its full aroma (and thus full flavor) to the drinker.

Only swill like BMC (which has no flavor or aroma) is good for drinking from the bottle.
