I tried this tonight and didn't have very good results. Most of my problems were from an obstructed beer line. It was a rye IPA (Hop Rod Rye) and a decent amount of hops from the secondary made their way to the keg. It was clogging big time over the weekend but eventually worked their way out. I guess more hops are back in tonight.

I had foam everywhere so I just gave up. Luckily the two bottles I tried I can just drink tonight. Oh well, another time. Here's a take away - do NOT rack hops into your kegs!

I just opened some bottles of a Dead Guy clone that I bottled last August with BMBF and they were perfectly carbed...woo hoo!

What was your process? Exacting as shown in the video (let pressure build up then press stopper to release)?

This is a great and cheap technique to bring your kegged beer to travel. Although I have one suggestion. When first draining the beer to colol the lines and get the pre-foaming down, don't use a waste bucket, use a pint glass! Fill it up and drink it whilst bottling! The less beer wasted, the better!

I'm in love with BMBF. I bottled a mixed case of Altbier, IPA, and soda last night while listening to Jamil preach on. We'll see in a couple months if the carb levels keeps up.

My buddy and I used this on several occasions per the instructions in this thread and it worked GREAT. I just recently relocated to the Seattle area, so I am replacing the things I lost in our homebrewer team's "divorce" and this is very high on my list of things to make sure I have.

Doh! Thanks for the idea!
I'll have to try that. I'm going to bottle some to bring to my Dad's family vacation this summer.

I can only get through 5 or 6 bottles at a time before the foaming becomes an issue and then I have to put it all back in the fridge for a while. Is this common, and if not any ideas how to avoid it?

I have bottled about twelve beers this way and I love it! It works great and it only cost me about a dollar to get a #2 stopper. awesome!

How did you guys cut your racking cane at an angle? I am not sure how to get a clean cut to avoid places that can harbor bacteria.
