Most folks only have semi-automated unbottling lines. Depending on how popular they are, the lines can get quite long.

I'd like to see photos or a video if someone has something faster than a beer gun or that attachment that gets shoved into the tap.

It would be fun to see one but I am going to go out on a limb and say that most folks would move to kegging vs. a bottling line. I can fill what I need when I need to right from the tap with a cheapo "thing that gets jammed onto the tap" like a Bowie bottling wand.

Here is a simple 1995 filler design

5L keg filler

Search bottle filler and some better ideas pop up.
