Phil's Philler
« on: September 12, 2011, 09:23:40 AM »
Has anyone seen one of these for sale lately? (or a substitute) For those who do not know it was a metal (nickle plated brass maybe?) bottle filler that sealed at the top so the level of liquid in the bottle was easier to get where it needed to be.

I saw one this afternoon.  I used it to bottle a starfruit mead.

They haven't been made in quite a few years. Dan Listermann got out of the manufacturing end because at his scale it wasn't profitable. He's now focusing on his LHBS and microbrewery. (I teach homebrewing classes for Dan's LHBS.)
