I'm wondering what the advantages and disadvantages are between the two different tools for bottling off a keg. I can pick up this counter flow filler for $30 today which sounds like a good deal to me. I'm wondering if it's possible to purge the bottles of CO2 with it first though, and if there are advantages to a beer gun?

I won't be bottling a lot, a 12 pack or 2 off each keg at most.

Thanks,
Tim

I have the Blichman v2 gun. I've used it a couple times . If I'm just bottling a few off a keg I use a hose slipped into the faucet that reaches the bottom of the bottle . I only use a gun if I'm bottling a lot .
