Default Bottling from a perlick stye tap

I remember finding a thread and/or video that showed a SS piece that would fit inside the end of the perlick tap, which allowed a person to fill bottles directly from the existing tap (on the kegerator) and not having to sanitize the "picnic faucet set-up".

Can anybody recall who makes that or post a link to the thread? I would greatly appreciate it.

** edit ** I just wanted to include that I did do numerous searches and could not find anything other that the picnic tap set-up

Bowie Bottle Filler. There is another thread for the 425 Perlick (if that's the one with the threaded faucet). The bowie just uses O-rings for friction fit. They work well.

There's also a similar product being sold on ebay and through AHS. Look for a "perlick growler filler"

I drilled a hole in a bung and put A basketball needle through it to be able to release pressure with my thumb while filling...

You can just bottle directly from the tap with a hose - Lower your pressure to 2-3 PSI and make sure the hose is at the bottom of the bottle. Go slow - It won't foam much at all.

Then thump the bottle on the table to make it foam, and cap on the foam to eliminate the o2.

I've gone back after 6 mos to great beer bottled this way.

Not that all of the other options out there aren't great! But there are easier ways

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

Are you just using a 3/8" hose shoved inside the tap?

I just got duped on eBay. Purchased a growler filler just to find out that it won't fit a 525 perlick tap...

That's exactly what I do. Just go slow and it won't foam
