Default From Corny To Bottle

Alright, I just searched for a half hour and did not find the answer I was looking for.

I have 2 cornies hooked up and we are going to a party this Friday and I would like to bottle some of our beer to take with us. I do not have a beergun yet, or any other device. Just wondering what is the "poorman's way of bottling beer from the keg to bottle. Could I run a hose from my beer faucet on my kegerator and hook up my bottle filler to the end of it and just fill that badboy up to the top and cap or what????


thanks

This is a homemade beer gun that you can make with everything that you already have from your brewing equipment.

This thread introduced me to the wonder that is the BMBF, and much more! Thanks for the tipoff!

This is exactly what I do if I want to carry a beer or two with me somewhere. It has worked pretty well for me so far, and it is even cheaper than the BMBF

You might find that filling a growler or two is easier for drinking in 24 hours. Longer storage? BMBF is nice.

Welcome! I used the BMBF this morning to bottle some BCB Imperial Stout for the Dixie Cup and a friend. It works great!

I love my BMBF. Though it can get messy.

I have some growlers I use for this. Just get 2 feet of vinyl tubing that fits over your tap, and you can fill the growler from the bottom up, which makes it less foamy and last longer.
