Blichmann Beer Gun

The BeerGun is used mainly for filling beer bottles from previously kegged and carbonated beer. It can, however, be used to fill bottles from a bottling bucket/fermenter, or even be used to fill wine bottles, provided there is a source of C02 available. In this case, little pressure is available to push the beer through the hose, so a shorter length of hose is recommended to increase flow rate.

The BeerGun is designed to be much more ergonomic and much less complex than a traditional counter pressure bottle filler. The BeerGun is designed to purge a beer bottle with CO2 gas, and then transfer the carbonated beer into the bottle with minimal foaming, preserving a high level of the beer's carbonation. It is extremely simple to clean and set up and intuitively easy and fast to operate. Unlike counter pressure fillers with multiple valves, the BeerGun has a one-handed operationâ€Ã¢€Âjust press the trigger! Everything that touches the beer is stainless steel, which ensures the BeerGun is easy to keep clean, and that it will have a long life.

  • One-handed intuitive operation
  • Less complex than Counter Pressure!!
  • Everything that touches the beer is stainless
  • Low foaming
  • Simple to clean and set-up
  • So easy youâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll actually enjoy bottling!
  • Great for kegs or bottling buckets!
  • Wine-makers too!

WARNING: DO NOT AT ANY TIME EXCEED 15 PSI on the filler. Ensure that your regulator is in good working order.
Operates best at 1/2 normal dispensing pressure. Use the minimum pressure as a good starting point.

The BeerGun includes a 10 foot length of 3/16" ID hose and a brush for cleaning the inside of the tube.
Do not forget to add the accessory kit!

Works Great!
I don't have room for a kegerator, so I need to bottle beer for refrigerating. This thing makes life so much better. Rather than waiting 3 weeks for beer to carbonate in the bottle, and have a bunch of sediment in the bottom of the bottle, I am able to put the fermented beer in a corny keg, carbonate for a week to the correct serving pressure and bottle. For the most part, the sediment has settled out in the keg and doesn't end up in the bottles. I have found that it is not necessary to chill the bottles, but they should be wet when filling. Set the pressure to the keg as low as you can go (2 psi) and do not stop filling the bottle until the foam is purged from the bottle. A bit of CO2 before you start filling to evacuate the oxygen and a shot into the headspace after you pull the beer gun out of the bottle and you are ready to cap and refrigerate. It is also important that the beer is very cold before you start bottling. The first beer to come out of the gun goes into glasses for me and whoever is helping. That clears out any initial foam that may be created filling the lines and lets you enjoy your new brew right away. Overall, a must have piece of equipment.

Counter pressure?
This is not a counter pressure filler. It doesn't have any way of containing the pressure in the bottle while it's filled. A counter pressure filler will have a way of sealing around the tube between the bottle and the filler and a way of bleeding off the pressure inside the bottle, maintaining a preset pressure with a regulator. It's a nice bottle filler but it is not counter pressure.

The Best Bottle Filler
This is a great tool for the Homebrewer. I can empty a keg into bottles in less than 45 minutes. Then I start the next keg to bottle. You can also top off your glass as your bottling.

Makes bottling easy
The beer gun arrived in perfect shape. Instructions are clear. Other than it seems slow to fill bottles, it makes bottling easy.

Love It
This makes bottling fun and so much easier. I wish I had not waited so long to start force carbonation, but I will never go back.

What a great tool!
Wow. Life is so much easier with the beer gun. I store beer in kegs and fill bottles whenever I need some. Low carbonation? No problem. Just crank up the CO2, shake the keg for a minute or two, then lower the pressure and wait a bit. Bingo, properly carbonated beer for bottling. Have a stout that is a bit too chocolately? Just open it up, add some bourbon and vanilla, and you have your own VB stout with chocolate notes. Carbonate as described above, then bottle. Love this thing.

Easy peasy nice and easy!
The Blichmann Beer Gun arrived timely and in good condition (thanks AIH!) and we put it to use right that same evening. It is a breeze to fill bottles and growlers, and very easy to clean up afterwards. Definitely glad I made this purchase!
