Has anyone used this filler before? It looks like the right idea and for 8 bucks cheaper than even making my own!

Reason: TYPO

I just have a piece of tubing long enough to hit the end of the growler and push it over my tap. I think the tubing was less than 50 cents a foot

Does it work? And what size tubing you use?

Works great. Not sure the size of the tubing but it fits nicely over the tap.

If I'm filling from a picnic tap I just shove a piece of a broken racking cane in the end

I bet the BMBF (see: we don't need no stinkin' beer gun thread, top of forum) would work also. Could even use a bigger stopper to keep the fill slow and steady. Anything that fills from the bottom would suffice though.

This new Growler filler doesn't have a tube to go over the faucet. It has a metal fitting that goes inside the faucet. Its under 10 bucks at Draft Warehouse ( http://www.draftwarehouse.com ). Look under Tools and Fittings .

Let me know how it works if somebody gives it a try !
