Good to know the carbonation is still there after the fact. I'm looking forward to bottling some Apfelwein for gifts this Christmas. The 32 oz. Tecate bottles will look good with a ribbon on them. Now to work on some labels.

For the occasional bottling for competitions and brew club activities, this will work great!
Thanks for the heads-up just ordered mine

Mine came a couple weeks ago. I have yet to use it, but I'm looking forward! Seems to be fairly simple and foolproof.

I'm looking at getting a Beergun, but I don't know exactly what I need to get with it. My regulator has a wye adaptor on it and is currently running to two kegs, and all connections are flare and not barbed, so I figure I can just unscrew one of the gas QDs and attach it to the Beergun and have the other gas line running to the keg I'd be bottling from. The stuff I know I would need would be a length of beer line with flare fittings on each end and a liquid QD to attach to one of the ends. Anything else necessary? Does the Beergun have threading for flare connections on it, or is some sort of adaptor needed?

Just sold mine.

I never could get it right, my beers were always undercarbed and it too was messy.

I'm going back to filling bottles with a cobra tap and capping on foam. Works great.

wow. you have more success with the picnic tap than you did with the beer gun. I find that surprising, but i guess we all find different things that work for each of us.

I got mine about a year ago.
It's really nice, although I'm not sure about having to use the whole 10' of tubing.
All that does is let the beer warm up.
I'm going to try with a 3' hose and see what happens.

Also, I use pin lock and had plenty of stainless parts & pieces, so I didn't have to buy the additional kit.

I'll post when I shorten the tubing and let you know if it worked.
