Thoughts?
That, sir, is a really great idea!!!

Cool idea but you have to cap them super quick.

Actually I've been using the single filler technique for years now and generally fill 6-8 bottles before capping any. These bottles have stored fine for months after capping and have done very well in various competitions without any scoresheet feedback attributable to this practice. What I like about the multi-bottle filler is that potentially shortens the amount of time to fill the same number of bottles and therefore to cap them!

Well, I used the BMBF for the first time yesterday! It worked great! I probably wasted about 2 bottles worth of beer trying to get all the settings right and figure out what I'm doing. Thats OK though, chalk it up to learning. Next time, I shouldn't have any problems. It really is simple!

Whoa! OK. I had just always had a few that were not as carbonated as others when doing this and i figured it was from not capping them quick enough. I wonder what it was then?

A couple questions,

If I were to insert my bottling wand directly into the picnic tap and fill, wouldn't it purge all of the oxygen naturally since it's filling from the bottom?

If I used this method + tipped each bottle and capped on foam would I have any issues? If so, what?

That's the same method I use. No issues thus far, and cant think of any you might run into.

Well, I will point out that after I fill and before I cap, I take the wand out of the tap and spray just a bit on the top of each bottle, put on the cap but not yet crimped, tilt the bottle to get a little pressure, and as I actually crimp the cap, let a little pressure bleed off in part to vent O2. With that technique, I've gotten GREAT results!
