Counter Top Capper, priced at €24.95
I have (borrowed) used a twin lever manual capper previously. Whereas it has been generally good for most bottles, it doesn’t like the Hob Goblin or German Spaten-type 500ml bottles, either being a PITA or just refusing altogether to cap, as they have unusual shapes for the bottle openings.
This will test if, a bench capper will solve these problems.
Bottling is the worse part of brewing for me, sanitising and draining are fine. The annoying part is opening and closing the syphon to fill the bottles and having them overflow. It means I’m bending over and covering the floor and myself in beer for 20-30min.

This year we will be raising the bar higher again and holding our inaugural brewing conference BrewCon 2015 on Saturday, May 9th 2015.

The ‘BeerBug‘ is a device that attaches to the top of your fermentor that tracks the fermentation progress and temperature of your brew.
This is the Porter extract kit from Get’er Brewed.
“A dark beer that perhaps doesn’t get the respect it deserves nowadays. A strong malty flavour with some roast characteristics and lovely chocolate malt notes.
Nutty slightly roasty and a hint of chocolate its hard to resist”
