Unless you’re planning on cranking out kegs, a bottle capper is a necessity if you brew your own beer. These devices help to seal the bottles to keep the contents from spoiling. Home brewers have a couple of different options open to them in terms of capping. The more professional bench cappers are a great option for those who brew a sizable amount of beer. These larger size cappers give you more stability and leverage when capping and take less time. A cheaper option is the handheld capper. Search for ones with rubber grips for comfort and safety, and longer handles to give you more leverage. Handheld cappers will also add to your capping time and your cramping hands.
