Well so that I dont have to bring the pressure down real low, I inserted these bayonet epoxy mixers into the 3/16" line. The purpose is to reduce pressure and prevent foaming. I got the idea from this thread below. the guy was inserting them into the keg dip tube, but some folks have inserted them into their pouring line. So at 10 psi and 2ft of line I have a very nice controlled pour with 2 of thes bayonets inserted. I originally made this little picnic tap for use when I take my keg to parties , but it works really nice for this DIY beer gun.

Ok I wish I had enough time to read this entire post but sadly I don't. Can you use a 20 oz bottle and the new racking cane to fill and pressureize with a carb cap? I know light is evil but if kept in the dark would that help just carb it a bit more then swap the cap for the real lid and repeat?

Exactly! That is good news that was my plan for the pool, parties, pulling the last few pints out to empty the keg for the next masterpiece. Would they need to stay cold then? This may take some testing. Oh how I hate to test drinking beer.

Has anyone else tried this without the stopper? I was bottling the other day and I didn't get much foam at all when bottling most of the beers as long as I dropped the pressure fairly low. The pale ale foamed more than the others but still not a crazy amount.

I'm just thinking it is similar to when I pour into my glass. If i leave the glass tilted then I don't get much head at all, same thing by filling with a piece of racking cane, very little disturbance to knock Co2 out of solution.

I'm wondering though if a bottling wand fits as perfectly into a picnic tap as racking cane.

unless you're just filling a 6'er to take to a buddy's. This is what mine generally get's used for. make sure the bottles are clean, but I don't sanitize them. I'll be drinking them that night.
Now when I bottle some for a swap coming up of BM's Black Pepper Wit (Or at least that's what I'm calling it), I'll sanitize them.
