BM, you rule! I have a broken cane in my car that I've been thinking about turning into a site gauge, but now I'm for shizzle making the BMBF.

Should you have chewed on the edges though? That "rough" look is trademark BierMuncher.

"BMBF" - Hahahaha... nice.

I'm definitely building myself one here in the near future as well...

Hey BierMuncher, any chance you would be able to do a short demonstration video and stick it on youtube? Having no firsthand experience with a counterpressure filler, I'd love to see if your method is as easy as it sounds.

I take a ton of stills...but haven't done too many videos. Trust me...it's easy. I bottled up an entire case of 12 Ouncers last night (for a trip to KC) and 10-22 Ouncers (to free up keezer space).

The whole thing was done (filled, capped, chilled) in about an hour.

Just think of it as a really long tap spout…that goes to the bottom of your bottle.

The stopper and how much pressure you use on it, is used to regulate the speed the beer goes into the bottle.

Two things that really help:
~ Freeze the bottles first (empty bottles get very cold very fast)
~ Turn your PSI down to about 6-7. This low-slow fill helps to avoid foaming and CO2 release.

I used an old dipstick from a '72 Pinto.

It's so easy that your brain tends to over complicate it. Seriously, it will take longer to download the video than to master it.

Stick the cane into the tap (it fits perfectly), adjust the stopper so it seals the bottle, and pull the trigger. You'll know when to burp the bottle because the beer stops flowing.

I'm curious, has anyone tried one you've bottled this way several weeks later? How was the carbonation?

this works with a piece of vinyl siphon hose too. I tried with the racking cane but apparently the piece I had was narrower than others. It leaked out the sides of the tap. So I put a piece of tubing through the stopper and over the tap instead of in. I am curious too about how well it keeps. I just tried it this weekend.

BM did you raise the carbonation level in the keg first or just did it as is? I did it as is, but have read a suggestion to slightly overcarb to acccount for any lose in transfer.

This is sweet!! I've got all he pare parts to whip this up. Just in time too. I've got a oatmeal and a klosch I did for my family around X-mas time. I was just going to fill some growlers but this will be much better!

I'll defiantly be game to try and test the carb lasting. I tend to drink slowly when its just me,it's my friends that bring out the beer guzzling It'll be no prob to put away a couple 6 packs and try them over a month or two.

cheers and thanks for posting this!
