I haven't done it in the heat of summer but in the spring and fall I can get away with putting the corny into an ice bath in a cooler for about 12 hrs before bottlling - I do have a carbonation stone in the gas line though - so I avoid having to shake the keg. In the winter time its a no brainer just set the psi and leave it alone for a few days. Then bottle.

I have keg conditioned warm with priming sugar just like you would for bottling, only I poured the sugar into my keg instead of the bucket, racked in beer, sealed and set aside.

It works fine, but takes 2-3 weeks like bottles do.

I just picked up my stopper and the racking cane at lunch today. The cane is about 2ft long and looks just the pic in the OP and has the curve at the top. Does it work ok if you keep the curve or do you need to cut the curve off and make it straight all the way. And
is the 2ft length ok.

thanks

I use a bottling wand with the valve removed and end cut at an angle. Either works fine.

I don't see how it could work with the curve. Probably better just to give it a cut.

Mine is curved and works just fine. What do you see as the issue Fly?

PS: If I'm to believe the pics in the original post it would look like BM's is as well.

More form factor and comfort than anything else.

I'm going to give this a go too, love the innovation!

The part I'm not getting after reading all 34 pages so far is why not use a bottling wand rather than the siphon? Wouldn't that create less spillage? (But still use the rubber stopper of course to keep the foam at bay...)
