OK so today I went off to a barbie , filled my 6 pack of Grolsch bottles from my keg , tap on the fridge.
Well this works OK but foams up and takes a while , what's the story with a counter pressure filler ?
Is this what they are used for?
Anyone made one?
Cheers batz

I've posted several plans to build your own CPBF on the board here See topic here.

Have been meaning to build one for ages, but never got to it.

Anyway last week I ordered a commercial version that will be a xmas present (so I can't open it until xmas :angry: ).

Should cut down on the mess when I want to fill bottles.

Beers,
Doc

my bottle filler is a gadget and a half not your normal filler. it would cost around $500 if you could buy one anywhere.

anyway it rocks.

Well, I'll have to at least put it together to make sure all the parts are there right :D :lol:

Where did you get your commercial CPBF, and
how much did it cost you.

Mine is the Listerman Counter Philler.

Checkout this topic that has the links etc.

Price was AU$89 from Grain and Grape in Melbourne + shipping.

I haven't used it yet as it is a xmas present (so I can't use it until xmas) 12:01am on the 25th is Xmas isn't it ? :p :p

Beers,
Doc

just tell the giver of the present that it should be tested, so if faulty, it can be returned before xmas.

its worked for me before.

cheers

Hooked up my new CPBF (Phils Counter Pressure Philler) last night and gave it a go.
First bottle filled rather slowly and so I up'd the pressure then my hand slipped and I had a fountain :D
Luckily I planned for it and had some towels down. Phew. The missus was laughing.
Second bottle worked like a charm. Fantastic. Filled pretty quick, no mess, no loss of carbonation, no frothing.
Didn't take any photos but will next time.

Beers,
Doc

Here's a pic of my homemade CPBF. I started out making one out of brass but decided later I wanted to upgrade to a Stainless Steel one.
All up it cost about $80, not including the bleed valve setup.

As the title suggests it's a Counter Pressure Bottle Filler.
It is a device to fill bottles from your keg, without losing any carbonation.
Now I can go into mass production :lol:

SS tubing cost me about $30 for 6m (they had no offcuts) so I had to buy a 6m length, but I have plans for some of it already.
