    I don't home brew anymore (trying to set a good example for the little tykes) but I just had a very basic one that went over the cap and you hit with a hammer.

    $3 at most home brew stores and doesn't take much longer than something 50 times that price.

    I didn't break one.

    There's no accounting for missing the capper, but all that takes is a little hand/eye coordination. !dance:

    Kitchen counter. It doesn't take much tap to put them on.
