So I’m on my 2nd batch and it’s bottling day today. Everything is going great, because I’ve avoided the 1st time doing this syndrome. I get everything ready and I’m on my 3rd bottle and my bottle capper snaps like the POS it is and down goes the bottle. In what was in my mind slow motion, I make a grab for the bottle and catch it as it smashes on the granite counter, cutting my hand and subsequently splashing blood into my bottling bucket. I can’t believe it an entire batch down the drain. The cut is ridiculously superficial and of course when I call Northern Brewers they’re closed for the day. I’m not bad mouthing them I’m just venting. Anyway, anybody have any recommendations for a better bottle capper? I had the red one that came with my starter kit and I will never trust that model again.
Since, I’ve fallen off the horse, I better get to brewing something else.
