I have used my BMBF with and without a stopper, and it definitely foams less with the stopper. When I didn't use the stopper before, my fill level ended up a bit low once everything settled because of the extra foam.

I've been wanting to try this for a quite a while now and today was my opportunity. Worked like a charm! I lost about 3oz while bottling 4 bottles just due to not having a smooth process. I call that success.

I'll be cracking a bottle in a few days to check carbonation and another one in a week or two just to verify for myself that they hold up.

Thanks for the write up!

This may have been answered somewhere in the preceding 84 pages, but in case it hasn't: How do you cut the bevel in the tip of the racking cane? Hacksaw? Hot knife? Table saw? Dremel? What's the best way to get a clean cut?

Hey

Has anyone built a 2, 3 or 4 bottler filler version of this? I was thinking you could make a frame that held all the taps and fillers and had some sort of linkage that was connected to all the taps that activated them all at the same time? Like a quad throttle body linkage on a carburettor?

Thoughts?

I'm wondering the same thing, anyone?

I just used a hack saw and then some fine sand paper to get rid of the rough edges.

Dremel tool makes it soooo easy. Took me about 1 minute. Then I brought it in the house and held it under flame for about 2 seconds and "glassed: it up. Now it's perfect.

Just like cat007, I used a hack saw and sandpaper. It wasn't tough, but I imagine that a Dremel would make it way easier.
