AJF thanks for pointing this out.
Ziggy, Please accept my apologies
You must have thought I was being a real arrogant prīck.
Damn IPhone app click-through took me to his dual stage fermentation chamber temp controller vid (and still does). Hence my query about relevance.
I just cut and pasted the link into my iphone web browser and got the keg to bottle vid.
I have learned something.
Jedsterr: the little bottler has a valve which opens when the wand touches the bottom of the bottle, so takes the place of the tap on the wand in the video.
Also, the kegs you see in the vid will probably be cold as they're kept in a kegerator, also they will have a positive CO2 pressure from a gas cylinder.
As you fill from a pressurised (just the gas created by conditioning) Pressure Barrel, the pressure will drop and you may find air being sucked back through the tap (spigot). There are two solutions: first, open the lid of the PB to relieve the vacuum or second, buy the CO2 lid for the PB and inject gas from the sparklets-type gas bulb to maintain positive pressure.
