Got this, liked it so well that I ordered another. Does what it is supposed to and is made well to last. And the folks at AIH are good to deal with.
Getting into home brewing and talking to other brewers, they all wished they had a bottle tree to make bottling day easier. I found this, ordered it, and made some buddies jealous? ìYou got how big of a tree? For how much? From where?î Screws together well. Holds bottles snuggly. The base is light so just be sure to be on a level surface.
I'm always hesitant to spend money but this was worth every penny. Holds enough bottles for a 5 gallon batch (some of my bottles are 16 and 24 ounces) without any problems.
I purchased this, along with the extra ring for this, and the Vinator. I paid the same price for all of it as my LHBS sells "non-economy" for. I don't believe the more expensive one is expandable either. Why they would make it to only hold 45 bottles is baffling. One previous review mentioned the pegs lining up together when the rings are screwed together. While this did happen a time or two, I felt confident there was enough threads to tighten or loosen them slightly to fix this. Non issue. They would have to integrate tread stops and you'd have to put it together in the same order every time for the manufacturer to remedy this. That would probably prevent this from being an economy model. Just make sure you generously spray the tree with whatever sanitizer you are using. This worked great and made bottling 2 5 gallon batches a breeze.
Let me preface this by saying that I choose to bottle my beer over kegging. That's my preference and I appreciate the different mouth feel you get from natural carbonization. It's what distinguishes me from other home brewers I associate with. That being said this bottle tree is an amazing thing to have around. It definitely helps on the days I'm bottling. But I also use it for many other things. After I serve a beer, I rinse the bottles and let them dry on this bottle tree between my bottle cleanings (it makes cleaning so much easier to just rinse the bottles immediately after you use them). Also, I recently got into wine making and this was more than adequate to help me with the 30 wine bottles needed for that too. It's a great value for the price and I keep finding ways to use it for my home brewing/wine making needs.
