FILL-BOSS COUNTER PRESSURE BOTTLE AND GROWLER FILLER by Brew Boss

FILL-BOSS COUNTER PRESSURE BOTTLE AND GROWLER FILLER by Brew Boss
http://www.brew-boss.com/Fill-Boss-Counter-Pressure-Bottle-Filler-p/fill-boss.htm



Fill-Boss is the first "Automated" counter pressure bottle filler that is affordable enough to be purchased by home brewers but strong and fast enough to be used by nano and micro brewery operations as well. It is built like a tank from laser cut and formed 12 gauge 304 stainless steel. Fill-Boss is microprocessor controlled, so it fills bottles and growlers to exactly the right level every time, just by pressing one button! The simple design can be used for nano and microbrewery operations as well as brew-pubs that want to add inexpensive bottling and growler filling to their operations.

The innovative spring loaded adjustment system can adjust to most bottle sizes, including 1.5l wine bottles and growlers!

  • Spill free automated counter pressure filling.
  • Handles bottles from 8 to 14 inches tall and 5 inches in diameter.
  • Maximum fill pressure is 30 psi for standard beer/wine bottles. Max pressure is lower for growlers and other vessels with larger openings.
  • Handles bottles with openings from 0.75" to 1.25" with supplied silicone bottle seal (larger sizes with standard drilled rubber stoppers - not included see description below)
  • Bottle non-carbonated or fully carbonated beverages from 5 Gallon Cornelius Kegs (Cornelius Keg, CO2 tank, and regulator required but not included) or from your brite tank or other storage vessel. (Note: This device does not actually carbonate your beverage. It allows you to fill bottles and growlers with a carbonated beverage with minimal foaming or losing carbonation)
  • Programmable Fill Speed.
  • Includes Ball Lock connectors and tubing for Ball-Lock Cornelius kegs or 1/4" NPT Threaded Quick Connect fittings for connecting to other vessels.
Contact us for special connections for Sanke Kegs and Brite Tanks. We will find a way to connect to your vessel!

We've received calls from a prospective customers asking "what is wrong with these units?" Why are they 1/3 the cost of other automatic fillers? The reason Fill-Boss is less costly than other options is that it was designed from the ground up to be an affordable and reliable filler. We use the Fill-Boss in our brew-on-premise operation daily and it has never hiccuped! One Fill-Boss commercial customer reports a 3-1/2 day payback when he switched to Fill-Boss! Yes, it is for real!

Most commercial operations use multiple fillers connected in parallel. Many people ask what the fill rate is. Unfortunately this is impossible to accurately predict as it depends on the carbonation level of the beverage, the type of beverage, and the pressure required for dispensing. One customer using two machines reported that they can clean, fill, and label a case every 10 min and essentially keep up with two machines. This is for a 22 oz bottle size, 12 bottle cases, filling beer. We've use the fillers at our Brew on Premise operation and have found that it takes 2 people about 25 minutes to bottle 2 cases of 12 ounce bottles (24 bottle cases) with 2 fillers. Your results may vary. We highly recommend at least two units for commercial operations.

There are several connection options to allow you to use the Fill-Boss with various beverage vessels. The Fill-Boss requires two connections, one for the CO2 (gas) supply and the other for the beverage. It is important that the pressure on the gas line match the pressure in the beverage vessel.

Brew Boss - Happy Customer Email

We love these emails from our customers:

"I tell everyone about how happy I am. This thing is amazing. I am a new brewer tonight will be my 4th brew. My second one, a buddy, who has been brewing semi-professionally for over 30 years, said my second beer needs to be submitted for judging. 5 step mash and he said. 'there is no way you could do that on anything but a brewboss'. I had never brewed any beer in my life and I am brewing some of the best beer I have ever drank."

Winning Beer Made on Brew Boss Pro 1BBL System

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/local/indianola/2018/03/25/carlisle-brewer-made-final-four-des-moines-registers-beer-brackets/456320002/

Carlisle brewer made it to final four in Des Moines Register's Beer Brackets

by Paige Godden

A Carlisle brewer made it into the final four of the Des Moines Register's 2018 Beer Brackets.

BackRoad Brewery's Sunny Daze, a lemon blonde ale, beat out 60 other breweries in the bracket challenge.

It was one of the smallest breweries nominated, and the smallest left in the final four, but Backroad's owner, Eric Moorman, said he believes his small-town friends helped propel him to near victory.

There are several places around Indianola you can give the beer a try, including The Zoo, The Local Vine and Hy-Vee Market Grille.

Moorman opened the BackRoad Brewery last year at 140 N. First St. in Carlisle. His brews are usually on tap at Back Alley Smokehouse in Carlisle, where beer-lovers can also buy a growler of BackRoad’s brews.

BackRoad is a nanobrewery, which means the beer is made in three barrels.

Each batch of beer equals about 35 gallons, and since the brewery operates on a smaller scale than most brewers it's easier to make sure the flavors are perfect.

The Marine Corps. veteran was able to open his shop with the help of Warren County Economic Development, which gave Moorman a $1,000 start-up grant through the Home Base Iowa program. The program aims to attract more veterans to the state.

Backroads was eliminated in a semi-final round at the Iowa Taproom March 23. You can vote on the two finalists, Bridge Road, a brown ale by Fenders Brewing, and a pilsner by West O Beer. Online voting closes Friday, March 28.

Brew Boss: WELDLESS 1.5" TRI-CLAMP BULKHEAD FLANGE ADAPTER


The Weldless 1.5" Tri-Clamp Bulkhead flange allows you to add a Triclamp (Triclover) port to any kettle with no welding or soldering. Just drill a 1-5/8" diameter hole and tighten the locknut. We recommend our 1-5/8" Hole Saw for installing this to your kettle.

This adapter is a perfect mate for the Brew-Boss heaters with the integrated L6-30P plugs and Tri-Clamp flanges! It also works with our Triclamp Pickup Tube Adapter.

The flange measures 2" like all other 1.5" TC ferrules, and the overall length is just under 1". The ID is 1-3/8 just like standard 1.5" weld ferrules. The short length of this ferrule makes it possible to use ripple style heating elements and not have the foldback make contact with the ferrule. These are extremely high quality pieces machined out of 304SS and polished to perfection.

The O-ring is included and gets captured in a groove so it can't squirt out.

Installation Notes:
  • Hole Size Required - 1-5/8" or 41mm. (Our 1-5/8" Hole Saw or a Greenlee Punch works best for this)
  • The o-ring contact is on the flange side of the fitting so make sure there are no burrs on that side of the hole.
  • The lock nut hex measures 2-1/16" or 52mm.
  • The front of the flange does not have flats for a wrench. The easiest way to hold the front of the flange for tightening is to clamp any other TC part on with the gasket and clamp (a blank cap works great). Once tight, you can insert a long rod or screw driver into the hole of the wingnut.
  • Works on kettles as small as 12" in diameter.
