Bottom Line

The Red Bottle Capper from Northern Brewer is a great deal at $5.03. You would be paying about 30% of what it typically costs. This capper also has remarkably good reviews both on Amazon and on Northern Brewer. The only slight caveat is the $7.99 standard shipping rate. You will want to bundle a few other items with your purchase to minimize the impact of shipping costs. Otherwise, this isn’t that great of a deal. Fortunately, Northern Brewer has the best selection of homebrewing supplies on the Web. It won’t be hard to find plenty of fillers you need or at least want.
