Anyone out there had experience with the Ferrari Colt Heavy Duty Bench Bottle Capper?
I’m saving bottles for my brew from the copious amount of beer that my wife and I drink. I’m currently using a butterfly capper and have found that many of the saved bottles just won’t seal well. The problem is that some of the bottles (Dos Equis, for example) have the secondary bulge in the neck considerably closer to the sealing bulge. Since the butterfly capper depends on the secondary bulge to push/pull the bottle up to the cap, if that secondary bulge is too close to the sealing bulge, you don’t get the pressure on the cap that is necessary for a good crimp. I tried unscrewing the crimping cup a little and that helps some, but it doesn’t help enough to be certain that the bottle is truly sealed.
So, I’m thinking of moving to a bench capper that won’t have this limitation. The Ferrari capper mentioned above looks like a heavy duty capper.
