Pegas counter pressure bottle filler for PET bottles

Post by Jeltz69 »

Before I place my order is anyone else interested in ordering a Pegas PET Bottle Filler like SteveC has? We can get a small reduction for combined postage if buying more than one.

I shall probably order tomorrow and its 90Eur for one or 170Eur for 2 although he does ask for a paypal gift payment so with cheaper fees there is a lack of protection but several people have bought them without issue.

I like to keep a bottle of stimulant handy in case I see a snake, which I also keep handy.

I've enquired about the ecotap which is the same one as Steve has, AFAIK in order to use glass bottles you have to make a collar to hold the bottle in place, which people have done by starting with a metal washer and removing metal.

you will need to make a "C" washer from a stainless washer (I have a bag of them) to use as a spacer for glass bottles. The standard 500ml bottles like gem etc comes in will work. You can make the washer using an angle grinder in about 20 minutes. will post a pic. I only bottle in glass if its going to a comp as they don't accept plastic.

Like most bottling solutions remember that you need to chill your beer to get the best results.

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.
