I just used this method but I dont have a picnic faucet so I just shoved a 1/2" OD hose into my chrome faucet. Worked fine except for a little leaking when the pressure built up in the bottle. It wasn't much ( about 4oz after filling a gallon) and just put a bucket under the curve in the hose to catch the drips.

Gotta like it when results speak for themselves.

So I have now bottled with the BMBF:
1 growler to take to work.
2-22's to take to a friends house.
The rest of the batch in 12oz bottles to keep for later.
I have to say it was relatively easy. I'm not really set up to make it a breeze, but cut me a break it was my first time. If these end up coming out well, I'm giving up on my bottling bucket. This was easy, relatively fast (although I either need a bench capper or SWMBO to do this quickly), and I love that I had precise control on my carbonation. And that I got to sample a bit from the keg before/during/after bottling.

Thanks BM!

I used this to transfer all 5 gallons of Ed's famous Apfelwein from the keg after carbonation to a pile of bottles. Worked flawlessly.

Like most things we guys do with our left or right hand...a few more sessions and you'll have everything down to a nice fluid motion...and you won't need the SWMBO.








I'm talking about using the wing capper of course....

True on that. I sit on a small roll around chair near my keg, have all the bottles on a bottle tree to my right (sanatized) with the caps in sanitizer in the bowl on top of the tree. I grab a bottle, fill it, remove wand, top it, place a cap on it to keep bacteria out and move it over to the left & sit it on the garage floor. When I'm done, I cap them all.

I was capping them as quickly as possible. I filled about 3 then capped them. Repeat. A lot. Is this not necessary?

I can fit about 15 bottles in a standard bucket. I fill those all...then move them to the table...cap them all loosely and then begin crimping.

Unless you have a real contaminated environment, rushing to get a cap on each bottle once it is filled is not necessary.

Just to report in:
Filling all my bottles from Cornys this way.
Using 10psi filling pressure.
Each bottle is capped as soon as its filled.
I use a 1 gallon bucket upside down inside a 3 gallon bucket as a support stand - this catches the runnoff when I am filling (for 5 gallons I lose about 1-2 bottles worth of beer)
Have also done a sparkling wine into champagne bottles at 20psi filling pressure.
My beer lasts at least 4 months with no off oxygen flavour (regular caps) - I don't know how it does after 4 months since its all gone by then.

Has this been put into a wiki yet? I think it should be considered a standard technique!

Here Here. I couldn't agree with him more. We'll get those corny sales up yet...soon even the bottlers will be kegging. Anybody carb their beer outside of the fridge/keezer to do this? I know it takes a bit more, but I just keep running low on fridge space. Man I need somebody to help me drink about 4 cases of beer. Time for a party I guess...Good thing it's almost spring.
