Blichmann BeerGun V2 + Accessory Kit – for $88, Save $12 – via Brewer Dude Two Step Workaround

About the BeerGun from Brewer Dude: “In 2005 the BeerGun® bottle filler revolutionized the way homebrewers bottled their kegged beer. Complicated counter-pressure fillers were obsoleted, and bottling became effortless and enjoyable! The patented BeerGun® bottle filler became the overwhelmingly dominant filler of choice and we’ve helped tens of thousands of homebrewers bottle beer and win countless brewing awards. Something we’re very proud of. But at Blichmann Engineering we listen to homebrewers! We’ve taken your feedback and have created the New BeerGun® bottle filler! More ergonomic, faster and easier to clean, and even more intuitive!”

From Brewer Dude:

What’s new?

  • Ergonomic warm-touch grip with ambidextrous thumb actuated CO2 valve
  • Positively retained beer seal tip – no more lost tips!
  • Anti-microbial beer hose keeps contamination at bay!
  • Accessory kit now included as standard item
  • Includes a convenient plastic tool case
  • Tool free super fast disassembly
  • Made in the USA!

These features, coupled with a CO2 jacketing tube for bottle purging and ergonomic valve actuators, makes filling bottles faster, intuitive, more accurate, and easier than ever! Because the BeerGun® doesn’t require a pressurizing stopper, you can fill a bottle of any depth without buying different stem lengths or adding plastic hose extensions or maneuvering an awkwardly long filler.

The new BeerGun® makes filling a bottle as simple as a press with your thumb for CO2 purge valve and pull of a trigger for beer!

  • One-handed intuitive operation – so simple it’s patented!
  • The most ergonomic filler on the market
  • Over 100,000 fillers sold!
  • Significantly less complex and faster than counter-pressure fillers
  • Tool-free super fast disassembly for cleaning and sanitizing
  • Everything that touches the beer is stainless – no brass in the product period!
  • Comfortable grip stays warm during use.
  • Lowest-foaming and lowest oxygen pickup design on the market period!
  • Anti-microbial beer hose keeps contamination at bay.
  • Lower oxidation levels than nearly all commercial bottle fillers means long shelf life for your beer!
  • Great for kegs or bottling buckets
  • Includes convenient tool case to store the filler, hoses and accessories.
  • Includes Filler and all connectors and hoses you need to operate the product. Requires two CO2 outlets on your regulator (not included)
  • Proudly made in the USA!
  • So easy you’ll actually enjoy bottling!
