These days I brew inside on an electric system, for the convenience of indoor brewing and the repeatability of electric temperature control. However, I still find occasion to brew outdoors from time to time. And although it’s possible to brew with electricity outdoors, brewing with propane allows more freedom in choosing your brew spot. And most outdoor electrical options are 110V, which can’t keep up with propane when trying to heat things up quickly.

Hands on Review: Blichmann Engineering Beer Gun

Thank you to HBF Contributor Aaron N for this hands on review!  Aaron is an advanced brewer, long time reader and a serial tipster!

Blichmann BeerGun v2

After I quickly realized the benefits of kegging, I was happy to forgo the bottling routine and looked forward to never cleaning, sanitizing, and filling 53 twelve-ounce bottles with caps again. Then I decided I would throw my hat into the ring of homebrew competitions. Back to the bottling world.

Availability Update… Anvil Foundry Brewing System + Hands on Review

  • Anvil’s Foundry Brewing Systems have been wildly popular since their introduction.
  • We saw serious availability issues for the Foundry since it was introduced into the fall of 2020.  Those seemed to clear up, but some versions have recently sold out.
  • To my knowledge these all ship directly from Anvil.  That means there’s one pool that everyone is drawing from.
  • Prices should be about the same no matter where you purchase.
  • As of this posting, most models seem to be back in stock.
  • As of 12/18 Anvil is saying… WE ARE EXPERIENCING EXTENDED SHIPING TIMES DUE TO VOLUME AND SUPPLIER DELAYS. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
  • Check each retailer for current price, selection, description and availability.

Buy a Blichmann Engineering Beer Gun… Get a Free Set of William’s Brewing Nucleated Can Glasses

Blichmann Engineering Beergun

More Info

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

What is a BeerGun? It is an easy way to fill beer bottles with sediment-free carbonated beer from a kegging system without excessive foaming.

Beer foam is caused by a sudden change in pressure. Unlike awkward counter pressure fillers, the BeerGun does not pressurize the bottle to avoid a sudden change in pressure when filling, but instead relies on a very gradual reduction in pressure from keg pressure to the open air. By avoiding design features like ball valves and sharp bends in the flow path, the BeerGun gently reduces pressure on the carbonated beer as it flows through it, with the result being the cold carbonated beer that flows out has minimal foam, while still containing carbonation. A purge button behind the trigger lets you first flush the bottle with C02 before filling if desired to eliminate oxygen in the capped bottle.

What matters is the BeerGun is easy to use, and makes filling sediment-free beer bottles from a keg an easy job instead of a chore. For successful use, beer must be below 37° F. and beer bottles must also be cold.

To use the BeerGun, you will need a kegging system filled with carbonated cold beer and C02 regulator. Hook the included 10’ of beer hose up to your ball or pin-lock barbed beer keg fitting. Now provide 5’ or so of gas hose, and a Q12 hose barb (both not included) and screw it into the base of the BeerGun and attach the gas hose. Hook the other end of the gas hose to a spare hose barb on your regulator. Now pull the trigger to easily pour carbonated beer into bottles. Cap quickly to avoid carbonation loss, and you are done. The BeerGun includes beer hose, a brush for the barrel, gas hose and connector, ball lock beer connector for your keg, and detailed instructions.


 

  • This is selling for $99.99. Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the contiguous US depending on your order size for most items.
  • Blichmann Deals are Rare: Most of Blichmann’s gear is under M.A.P. pricing.  That means retailers should generally have it for about the same price, no matter where you go.  Sales on Blichmann gear are few and far between.  Not non-existent, but rare.
  • Since you’re probably going to pay the same no matter where you buy, why not get something free??…

  • Both versions are on sale, starting at $50.99.
