Has anyone tried or thought of modding this to add their bottling wand?

Aren't most bottling wands made from about the same diameter plastic tubing that the racking canes are? Would it be possible to just stick the wand right into the picnic tap? Or is it too short?

May be an idea, but its also just one more thing that may complicate the process (spring-loaded filling)... the process seems pretty good as is, take a little "over fillage" mess at times.

Someone try this with a wand!

THe only thing with the wand is it's etiher on...or off.

The stopper (and the pressure you apply) is essentially your "trigger" for releasing the air pressure and allowing the flow. More pressure on the stopper...slower flow. Especially important when you're nearing the top of the bottle.

Don't know that you'd need two triggers. I think I've read where someone did that so I'm pretty sure it would work.

I guess it wouldn't require the extra alcohol abuse bucket to catch all your spills. When it's full and you pull it out, there's no mess. (there's no way to say that without it sounding all wrong).

Hardly a drop spilled. Best thing I have used to date.

But it's the moving the cane fro bottle to bottle that drips everywhere.

At the end of a 12 pack (all I can fit in a bucket), I end up with the better part of a 1/2 cup of beer at the bottom.

I understand. A bottling wand wouldn't do that. But if it foams up, then it's no good.

The other thing is that I tend to grab the bottles out of the bucket to go cap and leave the cane sitting in the bucket while I'm off capping the bottles.

Just easier cleanup at the end.

I was at the LHBS at lunch today picking up some odds and ends and saw a beer gun for sale.

Man that thing looked complicated.

You're talking about a bottling wand. This is something that is CO2 driven to bottle beer that's been carbonated in-keg.
