The Blichmann BeerGun is a bottle filler designed to allow
you to bottle beer easily and flawlessly from your keg. A stainless steel design coupled
single-handed operation make this product a unique and popular option among
brewers who only need to bottle for certain occasions. Cleaning and setup is very easy and we
recommend purchasing the accessory kit option as well for easy integration.
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
The other main feature is the very simple sanitation
procedure. Combined with the auto fill
level and ability to fill any depth bottle without modification makes this bottle
filler a great choice to meet your needs.
How it works:
Instead of pressurizing a bottle to keg pressure like CP fillers do to
reduce foaming Blichmann 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 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. Most designs use a valve at the top of the
filler. Placing the valve at the bottom allows
the valve to be quickly immersed in the beer further reducing pressure change
and turbulence while keeping 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.
In addition the beer is sealed in the filler stem when the
BeerGun is removed from the bottle it will automatically provide 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. Since
a pressurizing stopper is not required you can fill any depth bottle without
buying different stem lengths or adding plastic hose extensions.
