Let’s face it, we all love the simplicity and convenience of kegging, but hate the inconvenience of bottling for transporting our beer. We either deal with complicated counter-pressure (CP) fillers or put up with the oxygenation and foaming of filling from a tap. Or just give up on bottling altogether. Until now that is!
The BeerGun from Blichmann Engineering is a revolutionary new bottle filler that eliminates the complication and time-consuming operation and cleaning of traditional counter pressure (CP) bottle fillers used to fill bottles from kegs. The Quiescent Flow Technology; of the BeerGun eliminates the complication of CP fillers, while maintaining the primary function – purging a bottle with CO2 (no oxygen pick-up) and filling it with minimal foaming and carbonation loss.
The other main feature is the intuitively obvious operation and very simple sanitation procedure. Couple this with the auto fill level and ability to fill any depth bottle without modification makes this filler a clear standout. And since it’s from Blichmann Engineering you know it’s high quality, well engineered, and easy to use!
Quiescent Flow Technology; is so different and so easy to use it’s patent pending!! At Blichmann Engineering, we set our vision on developing a product to perform a function from the ground up, not just improve on today’s designs. So instead of pressurizing a bottle to keg pressure like CP fillers do to reduce foaming – with all its complicated valving and cumbersome operation – we designed a filler that gradually reduces the beer from keg pressure to atmospheric pressure with little turbulence. The result is a consistent bottle fill with little foaming and no oxygen pick-up.
Foaming is caused predominantly by turbulence and sudden changes in pressure. The unique design of the BeerGun eliminates the need to pressurize the bottle by providing a non-throttling, quick-acting valve placed at the BOTTOM of the filler stem, and a beer delivery system that is very low in turbulence. All current designs use a valve at the TOP of the filler. Placing the valve at the bottom not only allows the valve to be quickly immersed in the beer, further reducing pressure change and turbulence, it keeps the stem full of beer at all times. Traditional fillers, or filling from a tap with a hose, forces the beer down an empty tube each time, kicking up foam along the way.
And since the beer is sealed in the filler stem when the BeerGun is removed from the bottle, it automatically provides a consistent bottle fill level when the stem is removed!
These features, coupled with a CO2 jacketing tube for bottle purging, and ergonomic valve actuators, means filling a bottle is faster, intuitively obvious, more accurate, and easier than ever before! And since a pressurizing stopper isn’t required, you can fill any depth bottle without buying different stem lengths or adding plastic hose extensions.
With the BeerGun from Blichmann Engineering, filling a bottle is as simple as pushing a valve for CO2 purge, and then pulling a trigger for beer. It’s that simple!!
