I had a CPBF (not Blichmann) before the BMBF. The CPBF is tricky but anyone who can pour a glass of beer w/o foaming over the glass can operate a BMBF.
Stopper the bottle, hold the stopper, open the valve.
When the beer stops, wiggle the stopper to vent a little gas until beer flows. Repeat until the bottle is full.
I'm familiar with a Blichmann and the concepts are very similar. However, since it involves more than cramming a racking cane into a picnic tap, there is just no way it can be simpler than the BMBF.
I'm bad about overthinking stuff, so trust me when I say you are WAY overthinking this. I could teach my 4yr old to bottle with a BMBF. And even if I'm straight up lying to you, you're out about $3.00 and can still buy a Blichmann.
