Q:

I want to start doing this. As far as long term storage can I keep them room temp?
I do not have the fridge space to start putting a couple cases away for a later day.

Yes, store at room temp is just fine.

I'm repairing the link to bobby_M's video and bumping this post...as I've been getting some requests for additional illustrations.

Amazingly it works. My bottles have only been on the shelf a month or so, but they are wonderfully carbonated.

This works out great for me for two reasons. The first is I am often eager to get something in the keg. I only have space for 2 corny kegs in my mini fridge. So let us say that I still have 2 gallons left of IPA in a keg but I am tired of it right now. I can now just bottle it then put whatever in it's place.

The second reason is ciders are hard to sweeten when naturally carbonating. Now I can kill the yeast and sweeten with sugar. Then I just force carb and fill each bottle. This has really changed the way I do ciders. I thought about using artificial sweeteners in the past. This is way better.

Brilliant,

My wife wants bottled beer for presents. I talked to my suppliers about bottle fillers and he didn't recommend them. This appears to be solution, especially as I think I have 100% of what I need already hanging around! I've used the little stoppers for yeast generation or strengthening. I'm sure I have the broken cane as I don't remember ever throwing any old beer stuff away.

I am actually mad that it works. It is so simple. It uses parts I have. It is the perfect DIY project. In fact calling it a project actually makes it sound more complicated than it is. Makes a bit of a mess, but as long as you use a bucket you can drink the mess.

It is great for the ciders I make. I like to back sweeten them.

I made my BMBF wand tonight and bottled 16 off a keg pretty quick. This is a fantastic invention, thanks Biermuncher!

This thread is awesome.

2 things.. BM, you are truly a BAMF.
Awesome find.

Bobby M... Also a friggin stud.
You sir are a juggernaut!

Question...
Any reason this may not work with a growler?
Obviously you'd need a different stopper.

Thanks. I've used this with various bottle sizes. No reason it can't work. Even if you don't have an adequate stopper, just turn the gas a bit lower to fill even slower. Works just fine for short term storage.
