Introducing the Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler; the #1 way to fill bottles of your homebrew, directly from your kegging system. Just fit the Tapcooler into any forward sealing faucet (i.e. Perlick and Intertap), hook up a CO2 line, and you're good to go. Fill bottles for a competition, or just fill a couple take home bottles for your friends. The Tapcooler is quick and easy to use, and will keep your homebrew tasting the same out of the bottle as it would out of the tap. Make bottling your homebrew easier today, with the Tapcooler!
- The Tapcooler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler is an all-new, easy-to-use bottling device!
- Allows you to perfectly bottle beer from a forward-sealing beer faucet without CO2 loss.

The Tapcooler solution improves upon the standard counter pressure filler, 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! The Tapcooler design is also advantageous because after you are done filling the bottle, it stays in place hooked up to your faucet vs. other fillers require you to set aside and pick back up again for the next bottle.
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. Optionally, you can purchase the gas ball lock adapter (item #GF884) which gives you the ability to attach a gas (grey) disconnect directly to the filler unit. This optional accessory is a MUST HAVE in our book!
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 telescoping bottle connection tube allows you to fill bottles as small as 4.5 in. tall up to 12.5 in. You can fill taller bottles with the Tapcooler, but the tube will not reach the bottom of the bottle which can lead to some splashing. When filling large mouth containers, a bottle stopper of suitable size and with a 9 mm hole may be used.
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.
One of our most favorite features of the Tapcooler, is that is super easy to clean. Cleaning other bottle fillers can be a chore and take lots of time. The Tapcooler comes apart easily and allows you to clean all parts effectively and easily after each use.
All metal parts that come into contact with your beer, are made of stainless steel (SS304). The barb and ball lock CO2 adaptors are made of aluminium.
Lastly, the Tapcooler comes chock full of optional accessories which will adapt your filler perfectly to your setup.

So far very impressed. After my filling my first bottle and second went smooth. Much easier than the beer gun that I own and could not quite get the rhythm with. Not sure how long the carbonation will last in the bottle, but time will tell. If there is one negative, there is very little to no instructions on how to use. I would recommend buying the ball lock adapter and some extra washers. Two tips, make sure your carbonation level from your keg is where you want it and be sure to lube the fittings with sanitizer before trying to push them into place.
The Tapcooler is a great counter pressure bottle filler. Does not produce as much waste like my Last Straw does. Easy to sanitize and clean, unlike my Last Straw with the 20 feet of tubing that must be cleaned and sanitized. Purging with CO2 is easy and the pressure release valve allows you to control the bottle fill and if you want to cap on foam.
