What a Great Invention Sed-Ex Caps

Postby turbo_ale » Tue Sep 13, 2011 6:04 pm

OK, I am still new to this hobby, I did a search here and nothing came up so here I go.

I came across this web site on YouTube and the inventors link about a product called Sed-Ex. It is a re-usable product that screws on screw cap beer bottles. The whole point behind this product is you bottle condition with these caps on, the sediment falls to the bottom of the cap. Now you have sediment free beer in the bottle that was bottle conditioned.

Anybody have used these before, who sells them ?

Homebrewertv (RIP) did a segment on them one time. I remember them being very expensive and only sold in outside of the USA. Personally I have better beer things to buy :wink:

Interesting concept. I wonder if you would be able to use them on larger bottles. So I could bottle in sediment free 40s or something similar.

Exactly...

I only bottle for comps and I'm sure those would not be accepted and you wouldn't get them back. I'm corking and caging my big belgians these days and sediment is expected....

I guess the corny keg, counter pressure filler or Beer Gun made these caps somewhat irrelevant. For the person who has no kegging equipment these caps would be a great thing. This product needs a USA distributor to sell to the homebrew retail market.

No it doesnt. We have kegs here. I believe in other countries the kegs are harder to come by and bottling is the primary option.
