ADDITIONAL SHIPPING INFORMATION:
Oktober Can Seamers and Crowler™ Can Seamers have a standard 2-week leadtime to ship. Should you need your seamer sooner, please contact Info@oktoberdesign.com for assistance. We cannot guarantee expedited shipping, but will try our best to accomodate you. Thank you!
The Oktober SL1 Homebrewer Can Seamer is designed to seam aluminum beverage cans with size 202 ends (tops) with the B64 style profile. SL1 Homebrewer comes standard with adapters for 16oz and 12oz cans. Because the seamer shares the same upper and lower chucks and adapters as MK16 can seamers, it can optionally be set up for CDL and SuperEnd® (360 end®) profile ends (excluding size 200 ends), as well as optional can sizes like 500ml, 8oz “stubby”, etc. There is also an option for 230V 50Hz power requirements (export model). Currently we are working on CE certification for the SL1; until that is complete we can’t ship seamers to Europe.
Our original idea in 2014 was to build a can seamer specifically for home brewers, and we have finally accomplished that goal. After building over 3000 of our Oktober MK series can seamers and crowler can seamers for professional breweries and businesses, we have learned a lot about what a can seamer absolutely needs, and what it can live without. It’s because of those realizations that we updated the design of the seaming rollers and placed them both on a single lever arm; fewer parts = less cost. The SL1’s frame and drive cover are also more utilitarian.
It’s not quite as pretty as the MK series, but it creates the same quality seams, and will do so for many years and many cheers.
What is the difference between the SL1 Homebrewer seamer and the MK16v2 Professional seamer?
The MK16v2 and SL1 can seamers share many components and features. Both produce the same high-quality seams. The MK16v2 is designed for professional businesses and continuous heavy use with simple quick daily maintenance. The SL1 was specifically designed for less frequent use and requires a bit more routine maintenance, making it less ideal for commercial applications.

Our can seamer is fantastic - we use it behind the bar and in the back on small scale canning runs together with a custom-built purge/fill system. The thing just runs like a champ and has helped our nanobrewery put some beer on shelves where no one would expect a tiny place like ours to have a few cans. Plus, having the ability to order a small amount of supplies every now and then instead of dropping 1K-2K on a can pallet is nice.Sean Galie1/06/2018
Best can sealer, extremely reliable and the price is actually reasonable.Jared Dubina5/05/2018

Great product, and great customer service! It's nice to call a company regarding something and get not only a person but one of the owners on the line!Jeff Bunton10/31/2018
Super awesome. We are a draft house and can 16 oz to go cans. Never been an issue. Great customer service. We are using the MK16V2.Stephen Fields6/13/2018
It changed my life for the better! Customers are no longer drinking beer out of dangerous glass growlers. Update...downgraded my review because I did not get a koozie like Nate did.Eric Hoffman6/15/2017

The Can Seemer is awesome, and the guys and their support are awesome!Rockford Seth7/14/2017
This little machine is a game changer in the taproom! If you're thinking about getting one for your microbrewery, just do it! No regrets at all. Totally simple to use, clean, and has a tiny footprint.Christian Alquitela7/12/2017
The MK16 Can seamer arrived in a beautiful package and even included a koozie, about 2 minutes of assembly and we hit the ground running! We successfully sealed 194 of 196 (at least one was operator error) of our first order of cans with our homebrew kombucha and it was really as simple as the promo video shows! Well built and great appearance, would definitely recommend to anyone interested.Nate Fetterer12/09/2017
