There has to be some catch, I am suspecting on pressure/line length.

Could try long hose. I like my 8' hose. Experimentation is part of the fun of brewing.

I did not freeze any of the bottles I did (+/- 110 bottles in 2 nights). I used a 10' line the first night and it foamed like crazy. The second night, I switched to a 5' line and they filled perfectly. Both nights my kegs were purged and the regulator was set at 3psi, it does take some experimentation.

My beer line is ~16 inches, set reg to 1-2 psi, purge the keg and fill into frozen bottles. If I get a bit of foam, just fill until the liquid reaches the top then stop. Once the filler tube is removed the headspace is perfect. Cap after every 2 bottles to avoid any foam buildup

Works like a charm

I think the ~ means +/- 12 inches.

Sorry I should not have guessed, it's actually 17 inches, total. This is used for filling bottles or glasses. I don't have any longer lines

For anyone looking for Perlick 525ss fitting, I found one that works. I had purchased one that turned out to be too large for my 525ss taps. That particular model had black o-rings. The one that fits has red o-rings and can be purchased on ebay. I tried it and it fit w/o any leaking. The one at homebrewing.org turned out to be too large. They gladly took it back and are still one of my favorite vendors for keg stuff.
