I just filled a bomber at full 14psi with almost no foam. It worked very well. Its made of my old spring loaded bottle filler tube, a small drilled stopper, a small zip tie, and a 1 5/8ths length piece of 7/16 OD vinyl tube. I zip tied the tube on one end of the bottle filler and removed the spring filler from the other end. The tubing fits right inside my perlick plated faucet. Where it flares over the filler wand makes a nice seal. Set the depth of the wand to just above the bottom of the bottle and just press the bottle in the direction of the faucet and not one leak. Open faucet and use your free hand to slowly bleed off the stopper and your done.

Well.....i cant manage to attach from my phone. I did a twelve oz tonite and it worked well. The stopper size is critical. Perfect for bomber but a tad s. mall for sam adams bottle. Its a rather soft stopper which helps the seal.

So it's just a tube shoved on a racking cane shoved into a faucet with a stopper.

Yes. However, its a straight bottling wand. No bend like in a cane. I can take OD and ID measurements if anyone wants to try it. Most have this stuff sitting sround already.
