Also WTF is that bottle sanatizer thing you have?
See post 12 in this thread for details on ordering, and the price is $15 as in my first post. Mike tells me these will be on the website soon, but until then you can request it via email.

The bottle sanitizer doodad is a Vinator bottle rinser.

Nice video on bottling. You state serving pressure of 12psi and that is what you are bottling at, right? Wouldn't it be a good thing to kick the pressure a pound or two higher to compensate for lost carbonation during the process? I have never bottled in this manner (actually never bottled at all) and am just trying to get things right when I do it for the first time.

I like the concept of bottling carbonated beer and not having to worry about it getting where you want it.

Thanks.

Salute!

Thanks for the kind comments on the video. It was shot with a Panasonic PV-GS70D Mini-DV camcorder and edited with Adobe Premier Elements.

It sounds like a good idea, but I'm way too lazy for that You'd have to up the carbonation days before you bottle to get the CO2 dissolved into solution.

In practice, I haven't found a noticeable difference in carbonation, even after 4 months storage at room temp. The porter I bottled in April still had a big, creamy head on it when poured from the bottles.

I just opened two bottles that were bottled from the tap 5 months ago, and they were just as good as from the tap. So either I'm lucky or anal-retentive enough about line cleanliness I clean my lines with hot BLC every time I kick a keg, as soon as it's empty.

Yesterday a buddy and I cracked a bottle of weizenbock that was bottled from the tap almost 2 years ago, it tasted awesome Good carb and only a slight hint of oxidation (plum/sherry-which really enhanced the brew) I use ~8" of 1/2" vinyl tubing hooked directly to the tap for quick fills and some competition entries, but will pull out the beergun if I'm filling a bunch of bottles.

Hello I'm Mike the guy who owns Center Line. I should have these on the website later this week. I only made a handful (both thread sizes). I will make more but not for a few weeks as my supplier is out of food grade stainless.

I will sell the few I have on a first requested first served. You can email me at "[email protected]"

Just request the bottle filler, and what thread you need, and I will invoice you through Paypal. They will be $15.00 and $2.00 for shipping.

I use an alternate method for a quick fill of a bottle or two from my perlick faucets. The short section of plastic racking cane I used previously in a picnic faucet did not quite fit securely in the perlick spout. I heated the end of the plastic racking cane in a flame until it was a bit soft, then pressed the cane onto a flat surface to create a small bulge. Unscrew the spout, insert the cane, and screw the spout back in and it makes a decent seal. I don't have a stopper on the cane yet, but might try that in the future.



Probably not as secure as the barbed spout described in this thread, but better than trying to fill out of the spout alone.

I ordered one as well. It will make it easier bottling for contests.

I filled up a growler right from the tap last night. Screw on nozzle, shove on hose, fill up at normal serving PSI, done. Took about two minutes. Awesome. Thanks so much!

I've filled roughly half a keg's worth of bottles buy slipping a Grolsch style gasket onto my sanitized Perlick nozzle.

1. Bleed excess gas from the keg.
2. Set your gas to just enough PSI to dispense.
3 Push a bottle up onto the Perlick until it seals with the Grolsch gasket.
4. Turn on the tap and tilt the bottle ever so slightly to one side to let gas escape while the bottle fills.
5. You can straighten the bottle at any time throughout the filling process to slow or stop the flow of beer.

I've liked this process so far since the control of beer is easily within reach, you don't need any additional plumbing, and my drip tray can catch any excess foam or drips.
