Default First blingman purchase - beer gun

Broke down when free shipping was offered. I plan on bottling about 1/4 or 1/2 or my batches for friends and family so this should help that process.

I love mine. I still use BMs beer gun for when I'm only filling a couple of bottles because the Blichmann is a little PITA to set up for my system. But if I'm doing 12 or more...the thing is well worth it and kicks arse.

I love mine as well. If you haven't done it yet, I suggest building the DIY line cleaner. When I'm switching lines during bottling or afterward, it's a breeze to snap it on and push cleaner/sanitizer through the lines.

I'd also skip the accessory kit they offer (to connect the gas line to it) and fit it with a gas post so you can use a QD on it. Mine is setup that way and it makes it much easier to setup for use.

So you just put a post that would go onto a keg on the gun? Is there any additional piece that it needs in order for the post to fit? I bought the kit yesterday but would much rather do this...thanks for the idea.

That's a really good idea though you still need two gas sources or splitter.

It would be great for me cause I run two kegs and I could just grab the co2 off on and clip to the gun.

Love that thing. I have had a few of the other bottle filling DIY options that are popular on this thread but it is hard to beat the beer gun. Once it is set up it is pretty easy. Can tear it down in about 2 mins, give a quick cleaning and be ready to go. I know many of us like to do things the DIY way and have come up with other solutions for much cheaper but I think you will be stoked with it if you use it properly. Just read all the instructions and it will work like a charm. A local brewery here just retired 2 beer guns that they used for 3 years for all of there bottling.
