Blichmann BeerGun V2 + Accessory Kit – for $89.99, Save $10

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!”

Blichmann Beergun V2 – Beat MAP Pricing via Bell’s Brewery Equipment Sale & Hands on Review

BLICHMANN BEERGUN™ V2

Blichmann Beergun V2 via Bell’s Brewery General Store

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

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!!

6 Gallon Bucket w/Spigot and Sediment Filter [Fermentation or Bottling] – $16.49

Plastic Bucket - 6 gal. (With Spigot)

6 Gallon Food Grade Bucket from MoreBeer.  Includes MoreBeer’s Sediment Block Spigot, which helps minimize trub uptake.  Spigot can be rotated up (if you use this as a fermenter) or down (if you use this as a bottling bucket).  Note that lids are sold separately.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

A six gallon food grade bucket for fermentation or bottling with a built in spigot.  Outlet barb accepts 3/8″ ID vinyl tubing.  To use as a fermenter you will need to pick up the optional lid, stopper, and an airlock.  Includes our new Sediment Block Spigot, which will help minimize trub uptake as you rack after fermentation.  If using this as a bottling bucket, simply rotate the spigot to maximize product output.  Spigot includes gasket and sediment blocking lock nut and can easily be removed for cleaning and sanitizing.

If you use the bucket for fermentation be sure to use care when cleaning. Do not use any abrasive pads that would scratch. Once you get a scratch in a plastic bucket it is very hard to sanitize.  This is also why we don’t recommend storing equipment in a bucket between uses as a fermenter. A hot PBW soak is often a perfect way to clean a bucket, followed by a Star San soak for killing bacteria.

Please note:

  • Buckets are translucent and do not come with lids.
  • Buckets are not designed to hold pressure.
  • Lids are not gasketed and so do not always form a perfect, airtight seal. Not intended for long-term storage.
  • Food-Grade to 180° F

250 x Brewer’s Best Conditioning Carbonating Tablets – $6.91

Brewer's Best Conditioning Tablets 250 Count

Brewer’s Best Conditioning Tablets 250 Count (approximate)


  • Brewer’s best conditioning tablets
  • Add 3 to 5 tablets per 12 oz bottle

These take the place of traditional priming sugar.  Carbonation tabs are also handy if you keg, but still want to naturally carbonate a few bottled beers.  In that scenario, you would keg the majority of your beer and bottle portion of the batch adding these to each bottle so that you can skip a bottling bucket and traditional priming sugar.
