Description

The counter pressure bottle filler that sets the standard for filling beer bottles at home.  With a unique one way valve and adjustable pressure relief you will be bottling sediment free homebrew with ease.  


If you currently carbonate and store your homebrew in kegs, you can use a counter pressure filler to bottle beer directly from your kegs. One huge advantage of this method is that since you are bottling already carbonated, clear beer, there will be no sediment at the bottom of your bottles.

Counter pressure bottle filling is how a brewery bottles beer. The bottle is under pressure while the carbonated beer flows in. Because the interior of the bottle is pressurized there is minimal loss of the CO2 in solution. The opposite of filling under pressure is when you pour a beer into a pint glass where CO2 erupts out of solution creating all that foam. Great in your glass but not good when you are trying to bottle carbonated beer. Our counter pressure filler mimics a single filling head on a professional bottling line, a concept that we all know works very, very well.

Made by Fermentap, the design has two unique features. Number 1 it is the only model made entirely from stainless steel. Number 2 you flush and fill from the bottom of the bottle.

Beer barb is 3/16". Gas barb is 5/16".


Features While some models flush the bottle from the top and fill from the bottom, our unit features a special valve that allows CO2 and beer to flow down the same stainless tube, directly to the bottom of the bottle. First CO2 flows down into the bottom of the bottle to flush from the bottom up. Next you switch the valve position and beer flows down the same tube, filling from the bottom up. The result is a more effective purging of oxygen and no foam during the filling process - not to mention that the whole thing takes one-hand to operate! Why hope that you flushed your bottle properly using a type of beer gun, when you can know for sure that you have created the best environment for your beer to be stored at by using a Counter Pressure Bottle Filler?

More Details
The unit is inserted into the bottle in the off position. The valve is then turned to CO2 to flush the bottle and then to beer for filling. The adjustable pressure relief on the side of the unit allows you control the speed of fill by adjusting the pressure in the bottle. The valve is positioned in such a way that it is easy to use with one hand, while the other holds the bottle. This model is designed for 12oz bottles but can easily be extended to accommodate larger bottles, such as 22oz, with a small piece of 1/4" tubing.

Setting Your PSI Pressure

Before you counter pressure fill a bottle make sure you are satisfied with the carbonation level and flavor. The goal for counter pressure bottle filling is to store your beer in the most sanitary and clean environment possible so when you get ready to share your homebrew its presentation is perfect when you go to pour.

An ideal set point to set your PSI level on your regulator is 10-14 psi. This range is dependent upon the temperature of your beer and the carbonation level. We recommend you start at a lower pressure around 10psi for the first 2-3 bottles to make sure you get everything dialed in before committing to filling a whole case.

Make sure your keg is always kept cold. If your keg warms up you will have foaming issues.

Competition Bottle Filling off a keg
Matt Hunsworth on May 5, 2019
The unit is designed for long neck bottles. Is it possible to use it to fill shorter bottles? The stopper is the right size, but the hole is too large to place it anywhere but the top of the tube in order to get a seal.
George D Randels on Jul 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi George, unfortunately not. The stopper is not adjustable so you wouldn't be able to seal your bottle while you fill.
What size are the hose barbs?

BEST ANSWER: The Beer barb is 3/16". Gas barb is 5/16".
If I bottle a sour beer can I boil the entire unit to santize it thoughly? Will the stopper withstand high heat as well as other parts?
Ken Orner on Jun 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will want to dissemble the unit and soak in warm PBW or Alkaline Brewery Wash.

Excellent quality and value no more flat beers!
Works great it takes a couple of bottles to get the hang of it. Once you bottle 3 to 4 beers you get the concept. A key tip is to remember to shut off the beer side before capping. I did this and made a volcano mess out of one beer. Another helpful tip is if your going to bottle a large amount crank your co2 up 5 to 10 psi the night before. Start at the recommended psi settings in the instructions on the day of bottling. Cap on the foam, the foam should rise slowly, no volcanoes. From there can find your sweet spot psi without wasting too much beer. Friends and family we’re happy with a nice carbonated beer. I would recommend this product good quality and value.

Great piece, and easy to use.
Great piece of equipment! It took a bit a plumbing, but I was able to put a T in one of my gas lines to attach the gas side and a ball lock on the beer side and I was rolling. They sell a connection kit, but I opted not to get it. They say it takes a bit of practice to get used to it, but mine was nice and easy from the start! Just remember to purge and pressurize your bottle first then use the vent to allow beer to slowly fill the bottle. I might build a stand next to mount it on...

Love this thing
Absolutely worth the purchase. I now have less exposure to oxygen and don't have to wait very long to carbonate. It works great. Took a few bottles to get used to it, but it works great. I was surprised that the relief valve has to be unscrewed close to the end (at one point I didn't realize how far I was going and it popped out), but after I got into a rhythm, it's worked great. I also got the accessory package that came with it. Slightly confused at first, but you literally cut your gas line and install the Tee. The gaskets that it comes with work great. No leaks, nothing. They snap together when needed.

Works, but not great.
Biggest complaint is the pressure relief valve. To get it to work it has to be screwed out to the very last thread. Mine actually fell out and spring went MIA for about 10 minutes. Lighter spring would make it function much better. Stainless steel spring would be great. Fewer holes in the relief valve would be nice so you could direct the spray that occurs in 1 or 2 directions and not 4.
Hose assembly diagram would have been helpful. Parts diagram would have been good. Had to fish out tiny o-rings from 5 gal bucket of Star-San.
Rubber stopper loosens up.
Beer side hose barb could be a little larger, sediment actually clogged it up.
All in all, not sure it is worth the price.

Couldnt build all stainless DiY for less
This is a good piece of kit for the home brewer who wants to bottle from Keg. I have room for just one keg in the beer fridge so bottling some while the keg is running perfect gives some in-between beers to enjoy after it kicks and the next keg is chilling/carbonating.

Takes some practice and paying attention, need to fill to the right place to cap on foam but not too much to prevent spraying when removing stopper from bottle. A small inverted plastic cup sort of thing above the stopper might make a good spray shield.

Also, if pulling a touch early to avoid the spray adding a little more beer to the bottom not under pressure (stopper raised slightly out of bottle) will bring the foam to the lip of the bottle but be careful to swing valve to beer not gas or you will get a foam volcano. dont ask me how I know this.

Anyhow, for the price you cant build it sourcing new all stainless parts if you value your time at all and piecing it together it will have many more fittings and places that are hard to clean so just do yourself a favor and buy it if you are in the market for a counter pressure filler.

Could use improvement
While I like it for its stainless steel construction, the relief valve is somewhat of a pain and won't release until almost screwed all of the way out. Also, don't plan to use this device too much to fill up bombers or anything larger than a 12oz bottle.

How have I not reviewed this yet? First borrowed a friends about 16 months ago and immediately fell in love. Bought mine and my only regret is not getting the deluxe kit. Far superior to all other bottle fillers I've used.

Some thread burrs
Just received the filler. Took it a part to clean and sanitize before using this weekend. Generally well made but the Teflon tape is of cheap quality and one of the 1/2" NPT hose barbs had burrs on the leading thread that was chewing up the 3-way valve. I used a small file to remove the burrs. We will see how it performs soon....
