12/11/2010 -- Will these caps work on screw top beer bottles? Do you have screw top caps for screw top beer bottles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. These caps won't work with screw top beer bottles.Screw caps for beer bottles require using specialized equipment beyond what most home brewers want to use. We recommend using the pry-off type (recappable) bottles for home brewing. Those bottles are easily capped with our crimp type cappers.

1/12/2007 -- I am getting ready to make my first kit which I got from you (West Coast Blonde Ale). In anticipating bottling is there a big difference in plastic versus glass? I'm refering specifically to the 25 oz plastic bottle on your site - seems like a good size and easy with twist tops. Shipping would be very reasonable comparatively also. Are . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Very little difference at all. Maybe for LONG term storage glass is better, but hey...who does that? I prefer to drink my beer than to look at it.Yes, they are re-usable.
11/5/2006 -- I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?

11/3/2006 -- This is the same question as someone asked on 8/1/06. There are two types of pry-off bottles ... theres the normal ones that this works with and then there are the 'doubles' as I call them (since it looks like there are two lips one right below the other). I think they are the 29mm european style ones (instead of the 26mm US) and you need . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sorry, I just don't know. There are lots of different bottle configurations in Europe. Yours may be different that someone elses...We only deal with good-old U.S. type bottles, and that is what our cappers and caps work with.The BENCH capper can often accomodate bottles with weird "neck" because it does not contact the neck in order to . . .
9/11/2006 -- can this be used to cork wine bottles also?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. It is just used with beer bottle caps. We do have corkers, however, in the wine category...
8/1/2006 -- I have seen on a discussion forum that there are differences between capping domestic and imported beer bottles due to the length of the thickened glass "collar" at the top of the bottle. Are any kinds of adaptors needed to make the bench capper work with different bottle types?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not that I am aware of. Our bench cappers work on probably 99% of the bottles found in this country. There are a few European brands that may give you a problem, but not many.
4/2/2006 -- What size bottles can this capper work with? I'm wondering about max and min height as well as width for various applications.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is adjustable, as far a height, to accomodate most any size bottle. As far as width, the bottle itself is not a problem, however the size of the cap is. It caps bottles with a standard beer bottle cap.
2/24/2006 -- Is the bench capper metal or plastic constuction?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Both, actually. The vertical bar, base, cap crimpler/retainer and handle are steel, and the body (where the arm attaches, and rides on the vertical bar) is plastic.
11/30/2004 -- I just wanted to know if the bench capper is really that much better than the 2-handed capper? I'm just getting into brewing and am to the point where I need to bottle and cap. For a 5-6 gallon batch, is it worth buying this, or should I just save the $15 and get the 2-handed capper?Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I like the 2-handle capper just fine; and have owned one for years. It's compact and does exactly the same job. Some people wouldn't agree, but hey...that's ok.
4/2/2004 -- Does this product come with bottle caps? If so how many and can I get them in red? Can I use this product for recapping coca cola bottles? This is for a period play, set in the 50's. I only have a few period coke bottles, but they need to be filled and opened every night.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, the capper does not include the bottle caps.Caps (including red ones) can be ordered separately, by the pound. Here is a link to the caps:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/?Target=products.asp&ProductID=320
11/5/2003 -- Does this capper have a brass fitting and if so can I get replacement parts?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. No brass parts at all.
7/30/2003 -- Will this capper work on twist off bottles, or do you need a different type for them?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The capper works just fine, it's the bottles that are the problem. You really should use recappable (pry-off) bottles, not twist offs. The pry-offs are designed for recapping. I have heard of people using twist off bottles in a pinch, and they report that many of them sealed...but some didn't. Good homebrew is too precious to lose them . . .
