Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler for Forward Sealing Faucets – $79.99 via Amazon + Hands on Review

Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler for Forward Sealing Faucets

Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler for Forward Sealing Faucets

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Fill bottles of beer, directly from your tap/faucet with this innovative counter pressure filler.
  • Improves upon standard counter pressure fillers, as it plugs DIRECTLY into your draft system faucet (tap). Most solutions require you to hook up a separate liquid line, which is not something standard draft systems have setup and requires additional prep (i.e. more time). With the Tapcooler, you can have it setup and ready to go in less than a minute!
  • Connecting your CO2 line is also a snap. You can either hook up directly with a 3/16 in. push-fit line, or connect your line to the included barb fitting.
  • With the Tapcooler design, your beer AND CO2 are filled from the bottom of the bottle through the telescoping bottle connection tube. First CO2 flows down into the bottom of the bottle to flush from the bottom up. Next you open the tap and beer flows down the same tube, filling from the bottom up. The result is a more effective purging of oxygen and little to no foam during the filling process.
  • The filler features a push button CO2 purge valve which allows you to purge the bottle of oxygen before & after filling. It also includes an adjustable pressure relief valve, giving you the ability to change the filling speed. The pressure relief valve also acts as an overflow port for excess beer/foam to escape when filling.

 

6/3/21 8 PM Central: This has dropped to $79.99. That’s a $3 drop from where it was and about the same as you’ll see elsewhere. This offering is nice if you’re wanting a Tapcooler and have an Amazon gift card to use. Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices and availability can change quickly.  Check product page for current info – More About Prices

What Does a Flow Control Faucet Do? + Limited Time Deal

what does a flow control faucet do

In order to properly serve a pint of beer from your kegerator you need to have a balanced system.  You decide what carbonation level you’d like to serve and what temperature you want your beer to be and set a CO2 pressure based on those two factors.  To pour a proper pint, well carbonated without excessive foam, you need to balance your system.  Balancing offsets your set CO2 pressure with the proper amount of resistance.  Not enough resistance = fast pouring and excessively foamy beers.  Too much resistance = beer pours too slowly or not at all.   Each component along the way provides some resistance.  Typically most of the resistance comes in the form of adding more beer line.  More line = more resistance.  For a full rundown of this see: Step by Step Balancing Your Kegerator Draft System


Limited Time Deal, Resource Post Continues Below:

  • For a limited time William’s Brewing is discounting their entire lineup of Intertap Flow Control Faucets by 20%.

What do flow control faucets do?

Flow control faucets feature a built in flow compensator that allows you to adjust the resistance your faucet is exerting.  That means less tubing and potentially less foaming and wasted beer. The compensation feature also makes it easier to serve higher carbonation beers as you can set the faucet to provide resistance to offset the increased pressure needed to store and serve these beers at higher pressures.  Instead of replacing your beer line with ever increasing lengths of tubing, you simply turn a knob to increase resistance.

In my opinion Intertap and Perlick are top faucet manufacturers and both have a flow control model.
