Description

This capper is perfect for the brewer that is tight on storage space or doesn't feel like hauling out the big floor capper! The Emily hand capper is one of those pieces of equipment that a homebrewer must have.
 
Made by Ferrari of Italy this is the classic smooth operating, easy to use hand capper. It is made from self-lubricating Nylon and is surprisingly strong. The unique patented design has a gear driven head that makes capping a breeze since less overall force is required. This model is popular with homebrewers for several reasons. It is lighter than metal cappers. It has wider handles making it easier to operate. A built in spring allows the capping mechanism to automatically retract when capping is completed. The built-in magnet allows the cap to be positioned in the capping head and then applied to the bottle rather applying the cap on top of the bottle first.
 
This is made in Italy and not in China like some other red models sold on the market. We tested the Chinese models and they break more often. The Emily has been sold at MoreBeer! since our start in 1995.
 
Also caps American sparking wine bottles by removing and reversing the metal jaws.

Good reviews. I am just starting out so didn't want to go super expensive until I figure out what I am doing.

Won't cap some bottles
This capper works OK on most bottles. It will not cap bottles with a short lug on the neck. I have a case of these short neck, short lug bottles and I don't get a tight seal on them. Looking for a capper that will work on both long and short neck bottles.

Solid Value
There are lots of cappers that are more expensive, but I find this one easy to use and very effective. Only a tiny number of missed or crooked caps. I could see myself stepping up to a lever operated capper, but not because this one doesn't work very well.

Sometimes the backup is the best
I bought one of those fancy floor cappers so I could have one machine for caps and corks. I sold my old red wing capper. A couple months of hauling out the big floor capper, adjusting it and fiddling with it during bottling and I ordered another wing capper. I use it any time I just have a few bottles to cap. It's easy to use, reliable, and consistent, like all good equipment

Never Fails!
I use this capper to cap all my bottles every time. It's solidly built and works great.

I call this capper das champ!
Cheap and caps as fast as you can go. Magnet feature keeps caps in place. Great product.

Just in case
Love this capper. But I got to thinking, "What if it broke on bottling day, with 50 filled bottles, ready for capping?" Yikes! Ordered a backup right away. If you bottle, you need a back up too.

Old Reliable
Red was the first capper I got 20 years ago, the magnet fell out after about 5 yeas after I got it so I ordered the black one. It was crap I snapped the neck off several bottles. I have had some bench models, they just seem to be a pain to get the bottle in just the right spot. I still use Red without the magnet just place the cap on the bottle and clamp it down.
