Nice job. Maybe you did this but remember that if you're going to keep this beer around a while, rocking those bottles to the side once and then capping on the foam will eliminte 99% of all oxygen that can cause beer to go stale.

OK, I skimmed through the above so I hope someone else didn't post this.

If you are not going to prefill the bottle with co2, then take your original contraption, drill a tiny whole in the bung and insert a very narrow rolled steel pin in the whole.

That will act as a pressure relase but should be slower than the fill. Cover with thumb if it is letting air out to fast.

I hope that made sense.

These are for consumption today at work. I'm sharing with my co-workers at a small startup company. I will keep that in mind for the next time.

Sorry. Write before read error.... Done properly, there is little to no foaming with a BMBF.

I'm gonna try this soon. I have a slightly bigger stopper though. Will it still work ok if the bottom of the stopper is held down on the bottle opening? It should still seal pretty well I would think...

It's best if the narrow part of the stopper can fit inside the rim of the bottle.

This makes releasing the pressure with a slight "nudge" of your thumb more controlled.

If the stopper you have simple "sits" on top of the mouth of the bottle, dialing down your PSI to like 4 or 5, may make things more controllable. A bit slower...but easier to manage.

Thanks BM, I was planning on setting the PSI to 2 actually. Too low/slow?

That will insure a nice controlled fill. You may want to pull up a chair and have something to sip on near by.
