I taught this trick to my LHBS today because I overheard them discussing someone wanting a price on a beergun. They loved it.

They also gave me a loaner regulator until they get the double body regulator I want. Good people.

Oh, and I told them about this website.

In the past I've had difficulty with the BMBF and excessive foaming. I found that my keeping the keg on the floor and putting the bottles in the utility sink (easy cleanup) or a bucket on top of my workbench that I get a lot less foam. The extra resistance from the height really helped. Last night I didn't even put the bottles in the freezer and I had very little foam. I didn't look too close at the PSI on the regulator, but I believe it was somewhere around 2-4psi and still filled the bottles quickly.

I've gotten away from freezing. I give the bottles a good cold water rinse (like the local micro does at bottling time) and the slight amount of moisture seems to suppress the foaming.

Are you rising inside and out? And are you boiling water then cooling it to avoid any nasties from taking up rent inside the bottle.

Nope. Just a good ole tap water rinse. The bottles are already cleaned and sanitized...stored upside down. No nasties in my water.

I will have to try this tonight. I built a counter pressure filler based on the one pictured above. But I keep making a mess when i try it. twice now I have taken a beer shower. I only want it for this sweetened cider I made. I can't sweeten with sugar with out killing off the yeast.

Almost everything else I just bottle 12 or so. 6 for parties and 6 I save for aging. I had to bottle my Columbus English Honey Barley Wine. My girlfriend thought it was a bad idea for me to have 10.6% abv on tap.

This may have been covered, but how long does the carbonation seem to keep when you bottle this way?

I've opened up beers that were more than 18 months old. Perfect.

Haven't gone 18 months yet, but have done 6 -7 months with no loss.
