Subject: CP filler review
Date: 1992-02-27 20:05:00 GMT
I recently obtained a counter pressure bottle filler and thought I would
pass along my experiences with this unit. For the uninitiated a CP filler is
used to fill bottles from a keg under counter pressure to prevent foaming.
You must have a source of CO2 and a keg of beer to use one of these
gadgets. The CP filler's body is made of food grade plastic, brass liquid in
valve and two hand triggered needle valves for CO2 input and foam
output. The CP filler fills any size bottle, although I have only used it for
12 oz bottles. The unit worked as advertised, ie it CP filled bottles. The
foam out valve, with a hose attached, really cuts down on the mess when
using one of these gadgets. You just direct the hose into a bottle or down
the sink drain as I did. The unit is made of high quality parts and
manufactured to a very high standard. I have seen other CP fillers that
cost much, much more and don't work as well. It is advertised in the back
of Zymurgy and soon to be reviewed in an upcoming issue of Zymurgy. I
was very satisfied with the unit. It can be obtained from Benjamin
Machine Products, 1121 Doker Unit #7, Modesto, Ca. 95351 for $49.95 +
$5 shipping and handling. The unit comes without hoses and Tee for
hookup to CO2 tank.
I have no interest in this company, only a satisfied user of their product.
