Hi,

have anyone tried bottling from keg using beer gas ?
I'm thinking of carbonating with pure CO2 and then using beer gas (30/70 Co2/N2) when filling the bottles.
Does it makes any sense at all doing it this way ?

That's a nice tweak Hilbert. I'm gonna try that!

Counterflow pressure fillers are nothing new. I made one (as pictured above) and shot beer all over the place! Lol! Finally broke down and bought a $100 beergun. Only need one hand and is worth every penny!

been using this for a while and itdoes work great!, i dont bother with a stopper though, and chilling the bottles or growlers is key, and as far as purging with co2 prior to filling, i think it's a waste, when you fill the bottle to the top, the co2 is pushed out and "regular ol air" is sucked back in when the filler tube is pulled out. you could do it after filling i suppose..

[*]Go ahead and open the tap and drain some beer into a waste bucket. This will prime and cool the lines.

Waste Bucket = my glass!

Good share! Thanks!

Can't say I understand all this jerry rigging and metal parts to bottle from a Perlick faucet. A short piece of beverage tubing jammed into the faucet works great for me. I try to keep the bottle cold and reduce the keg pressure a bit, but otherwise it's super easy and essentially free. I chamfered the end of the tubing (razor/knife) to ease insertion.

I see no use in purging the bottle since the foam will purge the air, as long as you cap while still foamed up.

Seems like something I'm gonna give a shot to. $100 beer gun isn't in the budget right now. Thanks

Can some one clarify for me on the use of a bottle filler instead of cutting the racking cane at an angle. Does this (bottle filler) http://morebeer.com/products/bottle-...spring-38.htmlwork well? Im saving my money up to get a counterflow chiller and eventurally get a bottle filler but that might be a few months from now.

I'm still trying to work my way through reading this massive thread, but I've got a similar question to the one above. Does anyone know if a racking cane with a curve at the top or a bottle filler works better? Or is it just personal preference? Thanks!
